Many advocate government supervision because they believe that it will ensure National Security. Others strongly oppose this preferring to have personal privacy. Espionage has been beneficial in the past and has potential to be helpful in the future but when misused, it becomes more of a hazard. The freedom of speech also should not be sacrificed in the name of National Security. In addition, there should be limit on the kind of information the government receives and the manner in which it receives it.
Also, apparently the kids that caused the hurt feelings that lead to these horrid responses don’t deserve prosecution. The only way to possibly stop cyberbullying is to educate kids how to deal with it before law enforcements can step in. With the thought of prosecution as a result of bullying online, kids might think twice of whether or not they should send out that mean tweet or type that mean
Devlin would have thought the act of polyandry to be immoral and disintegrates the society however, being a moderate moralism he would not have wanted to intervene with the privacy of other unless the act has become very widely practiced and start causing harm to the society. However, if the was a law to be passed to make polyandry legal, Devlin would have disagree with this because once it has been made legal it will drive and encourage many to conduct this immoral act. Devlin did not say that every immoral act is to be prohibited. Devlin used the jury box morality of average right minded citizens where moral standards of behaviour are the standards of behaviour of a reasonable man. Will a reasonable man think the act of polyandry as something good and to be done?
Censorship can be described as the act of cutting out certain material that can be considered obscene or inconvenient for the community. This material can be found in social media such as in the TV, radio, or the internet. Censorship can be challenged because of the first amendment: freedom of speech. Free expression is the right of expressing opinions and ideas without any fear of being restrained or censored. However, freedom of speech does not include the right to incite actions that would harm others or the distribution of obscene material (Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, 2000).
To control and to suppress is the reason why we need law. Many people hold strong on the belief that internet should be a place where information and data flows freely. Yet, from the government point of view, freedom isn’t always a good thing. There is also a point of view to counter and protect against child pornography or hate speech. Others include religious factor, terrorism as well as other sensitive information for different group of people in terms of age, countries and parties.
It’s one of the reasons we have sentencing guidelines. And quirky punishments designed to go viral don’t just fail to meet this standard of the law; they actively subvert it. Their primary goal is to court publicity, and that publicity can’t be accurately anticipated or controlled” (Beato). The reason Beato says this is because he feels that public humiliation can become cruel and unusual once it is published on the internet and it is a form of bullying for the criminal even if their punishment was for something that wasn’t that
Civil liberties are different than Civil Rights. Where Civil Rights are to prevent the government from abusing us by treating the people wrong and unequally. The Civil Liberties are there to limit the government power on the people. It is there to protect our freedom. That is why we have our freedom of speech which protects us people from having the government limit what we say.
However, there are limits to what we are allowed to say. We can’t misuse the freedom of speech, saying words that can cause serious harm (bullying). This form of speech will cause depression, suicide, and stunted social development. When freedom of speech hurts others, then it is not just an opinion anymore; it is a form of hate
Given the fact that the media institutions use sexuality and violence as a marketing instrument in order to attract more viewers or consumers, it means that the media companies are trying to market themselves or their products at the expense of ignoring business ethics. In my opinion the government should impose rules and regulations on the media channels to end this problem and in order help the parents who suffers from this problem with their
There are several reasons which lead to cyberbullying One of the causes is people who have been bullied in the past want to do the same with others. When these victims have experienced being bullied, they may seek revenge, in other words, they want someone who is weaker than them to suffer their trauma. In addition, this action is a justification for the time when cyberbullying-victims have been tormented and harassed. By cyberbullying others, they may feel better for themselves but that is just a temporary sense of relief. Another reason for cyber-harassment is people want to prove themselves and validate their popularity.
