To be free is defined as the condition or right of being able or allowed to do whatever you want to, without being controlled or limited. In today’s society freedom can allow you to a variety of things. To be safe is defined as the condition of being protected from or unlikely to cause danger or risk. In my opinion safety is more important than freedom. Freedom is something that can be offered anywhere.

1 – Introduction A- Identification of Ethical Problem The ethical dilemma is freedom of speech vs. truth-telling. Freedom of speech and expression is important in the media because it strongly ensures that there is democracy. Freedom of speech gives any media practitioner the right to freely express what he or she thinks about a certain topic or a certain person. In expression of one’s opinion, he or she does not find the urge to protect the reputation of the company or person or product they are talking about. While any media practitioner is expressing his views and opinions, he or she may be violating the reputation of the subject they are talking about.
Williams Shakespeare is recognized as the greatest English writer. One of his best works ever written is “Hamlet”, which is the most complex, confusing, and frequently performed play. The extreme complexity of the main character – prince Hamlet in this play contributes to its popularity until today. “Hamlet is supposedly the most quoted figure in Western culture after Jesus, maybe the most charismatic too” (Bloom 384). In the most famous revenge tragedy, his biggest weakness that he procrastinates completing his revenge for his father’s death by killing the murderer.

Mcdonagh now in the States, where his favorite, Colin Farrell, is Marty, an early alcoholic Irish essayist managing a Hollywood film, and the amount of psychopaths included has exponentially ascended to seven. At the opening of the startling and interesting Seven Psychopaths the camera slants above Los Angeles, taking in the prominent sign that has approached over the city since 1923, the Hollywood. After a short time we comprehend that this film
The Godfather is an American crime film, and is considered one of the most iconic movies of all time. The filmmaker communicated his ideas with the viewers through use of cinematography, mis-en-scène, editing, acting, narrative structure, and sound in an outstanding way. The Godfather is about the Corleone crime family and the many problems that arise when being one of the most powerful crime families in New York. The Corleone family is lead by Don Vito Corleone. The film starts off at Vito’s daughter’s wedding, and is taking in requests, since no Sicilian can refuse a request on the day of his daughter’s wedding.
Human dignity, equality, freedom to live without harassment and intimidation, social harmony, mutual respect, and protection of one’s good name and honor are also central to the good life and deserve to be safeguarded. Because these values conflict, either inherently or in particular contexts, they need to be balanced.” Even in our democracies, where free speech is claimed every day by million of people as a complete right to express their opinion, as hurtful as it could be, intellectual pluralism should not belong there. Democracies are created for people’s regulation, satisfaction (« government (...) for the people ») and happiness (proved by the interest created by the notion of Gross National Happiness, which could measure it), and letting everyone express their hate or harm someone orally could attack this idea of happiness promoted by many governments. As a consequence, the Secretary General of the United Nations write a « Model Law Against Racial Discrimination » which restricts the freedom of opinion, expression, and peaceful assembly: « it shall be an offense to threaten, insult, ridicule or otherwise abuse a person or group of persons with words or behavior which may be interpreted as an attempt to cause racial discrimination or racial hatred »; « it shall be an offense to defame an individual or group of individuals on racial grounds. Organizations which
For better or worse, we are inextricably linked to the media. We are now living a media culture and its influence is becoming very pervasive (Mohd Hamdan Adnan 2003) There is one law in Malaysia that protects media freedom, Article 10 of the Constitution. It also notes that there are limits to this freedom, and these limits are, generally, defined by the Government. Media freedom is defined the freedom of communicating and expressing through media including various electronic media and published materials. Freedom of the press is essential to democracy, but like other freedoms, it may also complicate the governing process.
Patriot Act I would, as a congressman, continue to fund the Patriot Act. The reason is that the security and respect of people is very important, however if you know that by searching through important documents you will find the cause of a security breach, a terrorist attack, or even far worse. This could jeopardize the country that we strive so hard to make what we have made today. When we think of safety the people is the top priority. The Patriot Act allows investigators to obtain more evidence that can speed up investigation and prevent more crime.
A great example of how the DHS is handling our infrastructure would be the National Infrastructure Protection Plan. This plan provides an updated approach to critical infrastructure security and resilience focuses on integration of cyber and physical security efforts and drives action toward long term improvement (DHS, n.d.). Although there are some great resources available for critical infrastructure protection, there are still vulnerabilities that exist. In my opinion, the fact that a lot of critical infrastructure is privately owned and operated is a cause for concern. Because of this “partnerships between the public and private sectors are essential to maintaining critical infrastructure security and resilience.
Is National Security better than Personal Privacy? People fear their loss of privacy, but the government is trying to protect us. The 4th Amendment states that citizens have the right to protect their privacy and should not be violated without a warrant. The Patriot Act was passed to protect citizens from terrorism.
