Around the world, every country is unique in its own way, although they are diverse, there is one thing that every country undeniably has that makes the citizens all similar- censorship. The main principles of the First Amendment are freedom of speech, religion, and press. The First Amendment also allows citizens to protest peacefully and petition. Many immigrants come to the United States to live the “American Dream”. However, this idea overshadows how similar our countries really are.
The government controls almost every aspect of peoples’ lives and going against the government results in elimination or torture. Surprisingly, 1984 relates significantly to several of today’s societies and governments, including the United States, Russia, Cuba, and North Korea in ways of mass mind control, electronic intrusion, and endless war. The USA PATRIOT Act allows the government to get a hold of an individual’s private records without a warrant. This completely takes away a person’s right to privacy. The government has access search anyone’s internet or library records.
Government watching is something that the government shouldn’t do because although there are bad people in this world it is irrelevant for them to watch everyone because not everyone is bad and many people disfavors this decision. In fact, the majority of Americans disapprove of the U.S. government collecting their phone and internet data as a
If America began using government surveillance in its citizens’ homes, America would no longer be a free country. The cons of government surveillance outweigh the pros. George Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four as a warning about the dangers of a totalitarian government, and the use of government surveillance was a theme presented throughout the whole novel. The citizens of Oceania had absolutely no privacy, and if the United States continues to use surveillance than it can lead to the same level of manipulation as the
Don’t you dare touch the internet I thought that with the government of thailand starting to censor their internet and china continuing to rack up it’s human rights violation it would be good for someone to defend the internet. The thing is that most people don’t realise is that the internet basically is an extension of the freedom of speech and the censorship of it is illegal. So I state that the internet shouldn’t be censored at any grade since it violates human rights, it can greatly affect the nation's economy, it’s expensive and hard to censor the entire internet. My first argument is that the censorship helps to create a middle income trap.The middle class trap is when society has risen from poverty and a new class is created, but
The greater good of the society is not more important than our right to privacy. In George Orwell’s “1984” he discusses a horrible totalitarian government where everyone is being watched at all times and killed for breaking their harsh rules. Sure, our government hasn’t gone to that extent yet, but it has so many similarities to our present day society. In George Orwell 's 1984 he says “any sound that Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it;.... He could be seen as well as heard” (orwell, pg 4) .Orwell is talking about a telescreen a camera of some sort that is always watching the people of Oceania .
persons. They are the people the government tracks to see if anything suspicious comes in to the U.S.. The Obama administration said that “extensive procedures, specifically approved by the court, to ensure that only non-U.S. persons outside the U.S. are targeted, and that minimize the acquisition, retention and dissemination of incidentally acquired information about U.S. persons.”(citation). The government searching people without having a warrant. The government has many tools in looking into people's information but the government doesn't realize that it is violating the 4th amendment by using the resources they have in looking into suspected people and that's the reason why we cannot trust our information to be safe with the government either way.
I agree with the government has access to check and collecting phone records because for me, American security is the most important situation facing the society privacy. Some of the reason why I say it is that everybody knows that government was taking access to our information long time ago. It is not a new, also I think that the principally, government doesn’t care about our lives. They just want to prevent our security of possible attacks terrorist and people, who want to cause crime; it doesn’t matter if the government just wants to save its security. Everybody should know that all government problems affect our relatively.
There is a constant threat to the United States and its citizens in the form of terrorism. Taking the proper steps is crucial to ensure the Homeland stays protected as well as the people that rightfully live in it. There are still many terrorist organizations that have explicitly spoken and wrote about having their ultimate goal to inflict terrorism on the United States. These organizations are being constantly monitored with professionals and counterterrorism agencies. The National Counterterrorism center is one of the leading agencies in gathering intelligence and reporting on potential terrorism activity.
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.
