Society will always differ over how we should and should not publicly post what we choose, the government also gets involved in this which takes away some of our amendment rights. The majority of people believe that by not allowing some things to be said or published, that this constitutional right is being violated. In essence, this means that government censorship would primarily attempt to stop an unintentional effect of certain speech or expression on the Internet; in other words, the government would be opposing the idea of individualism in society. Our rights get violated in everyday life and the government hinders part of it. Society should have fullness of their right and be allowed to post whatever they please to without worrying about it being removed by the
Ex secret agent wrote book regarding of secret operations that UK was operating in 90’s. He as the witness and the part of operation described details of operations that UK kept secret. The News wanted to write a small article regarding book, so they contacted the author of the book, however UK government banned this action and the accused that information that was kept was so secret that entire nation could have been in danger if it was available for public. The case went through the court where judge supported the statement that such highly secret information must have remained behind the curtains. The News, considered this courts’ action as not valid.
Which most of the song now a days got curses. As censorship in books, plays, and movies may affect the overall feeling and meaning of the writing but people should have the freedom of speech to express their self through many ways. While censorship is needed to ensure social media, it also negates freedom of speech. People should be allowed to convey themselves and say what they feel or believe without being restricted. But freedom of speech does not mean that you can say absolutely anything it comes with responsibility and therefore people should ensure they don’t offend
We live in a global village that has many religions in it and hence should not make laws that are partial to few or put others at a disadvantage. Religions have contradicting opinions on topics and no law supporting or declaring that any one opinion is correct should be passed. Looking at it from a broader perspective, religion should not interfere with the rights of people, such as freedom of speech. Salman Rushdie himself felt the blunt of this as the supreme leader of Iran, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a Fatwa against him, calling for his assassination following the publication of his novel, The Satanic Verses in the l980s. He claimed that the book was against religion as an Islam itself.
Beatty's motives were to protect himself from higher power, revealing that people will do almost anything to protect themselves or people they love. In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, after driving to Montag’s house, Beatty asked him to burn it down. Some would say that this was Beatty’s challenging Montag or that Beatty was doing right and protecting himself. However if Beatty had not taken the calls and burned Montag's home down he would have had consequences for disobeying the rules. The government in the book had been brainwashing their citizens into believing books were bad for society and were constantly distracting them.
Censorship by the government is unconstitutional. Censorship can have positive effects on society; however, it hinders freedom of speech, can insight dictatorship, and oppress individuals. The 1st Amendment protects public institutions from having to compromise the ideals of free speech by establishing framework that defines critical rights and responsibilities. American people resort to “more speech not enforced silence” in seeking to resolve our differences in values, sensibilities, and offenses. The effect has restricted newspapers, television, radio, etc.
If they had that amount of control it would be crushing. We would no longer be able to post opinions online if the government didn 't approve. Which would violate our freedom of speech and freedom of press. Now the government should have control to the extent where they aren 't taking down opinions and posts because they don 't like it. Thankfully the government has restrictions on what they can do to the internet.
Therefore, I think Singaporeans should not be allowed to speak as they wish on race and religion in the public. Nevertheless Singapore is still able to prosper and become one of the world best country despite being ranked 153 based on freedom index The restriction of freedoms of speech in all aspects are to be monitored closely and should not be overlooked. For instance the sedition act aims to retain political stability and racial harmony. Control of the media like newspaper, radio etc. are closely linked to the government for better control over contents.
Freedom of speech and press should achieve the ideal goal from the government and the intervention from the strength groups. In Malaysia Constitution which is Federal Constitution was listed down the freedom of speech but there are others limit that we need to follow including Sedition Act of 1948, the Internal Security Act of 1960, Printing Presses and Publication Act of 1984 and more. Defamation laws affect the work of journalists in Malaysia apparently. The defamation laws just play a role to suppress the freedom of speech, ruling party are holding the ownership and the right to control it. (TengSS, 2010) Once the government has the right to control the media, the freedom of speech and expression is lost and the beginning of dictatorship.
Has our nation ever thought about how the government could be manipulating people in believing in anything with the power of language? That is exactly what the book, 1984 by George Orwell does. The government in 1984 controls their people with the fear of having no privacy. In a result from not having privacy, the government can tell who is going against the Party and if they talk bad about the Party then they will be taken away and “vaporized”. Also, if the people do not believe in everything the Party says then they also will be taken away.
