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
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.
"I was not predicting the future, I was trying to prevent it" (Bradbury). The world illustrated in Fahrenheit 451 isn 't that far off from our own. Technology has become a very influential part of everyone 's lives, and has control over people’s actions and thoughts. Ray Bradbury uses the themes mass media, conformity vs. individuality, and censorship in his dystopian novel, Fahrenheit 451, to capture a futuristic world in which books are illegal and technology is consuming society. Mass media is a significant theme throughout the book, Fahrenheit 451.
World War 1 was the first war were propaganda played huge role in keeping people at the home front informed about what was happening throughout the battlefields. This was also the first war where the government introduced propaganda to target the public and change their opinion on war (“Propaganda in World War 1”). There were many reasons for the governments to use propaganda throughout World War 1 such as; to blacken the enemy's name, to turn countries against another country, to persuade people into enlisting, to make war sound glorious ("Facts - AL WWI Propaganda. "), and to calm down or even to stir up emotions throughout the war. One of the main ways propaganda was used in World War 1 was to ensure that the public only knew what the governments wanted them to know.
Some argue that censorship should not eliminate the right to information, they believe that people got the freedom of speech, to express oneself freely whether through words of the mouth, literature ,art and other means of communication. You can’t judge the individuals they have a different views but the censorship does not allow the people as for example the media got the right to disclose the information that people needs to understand, however ,According Clyde (1997) Censorship internet is vital tool in education actually it is an environment children should be kept away from. It benefit by the way it is used but some use it in a wrong way for example, Social media is a place where people can say or type thing openly as religion offense, intense racism and political issues etc. Whereas Some even argue that it is to be fine that movies and books to be censored but not to monitor the lyrics of the songs. Which most of the song now a days got curses.
If school libraries want to ban books that are considered holy, it is technically unconstitutional. Books that are extremely political are often banned in schools, sometimes libraries even ban them for witchcraft. Library policies that restrict access to resources for any reason must be carefully formulated and administered to ensure they do not violate established principles of intellectual freedom. In the Declaration of Human Rights it simply states, "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontier.” This quote is also points out that it is considered unconstitutional to remove a book from a school
(AGG) As Daniel J. Boorstin had clarified, “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” (Goodreads) This relates to the government form Fahrenheit 451 trying to hide the truth from the society, and had eventually killed them. (BS-1) The government tries to control the amount of knowledge and take advantage of the lack of knowledge. (BS-2) The effort to control this trait, while helping the society, will eventually damage the society. (BS-3) The lack of memory power will help avoid controversies while damaging many relationships, but, this can be fixed by slowing your thoughts and clearing your mind. (TS) In the book, Fahrenheit 451, Bradbury 's key message is to remind his readers about the value of knowledge and memory, and the dangers of trying to control them.
United States of America, a country that is known for its striving democracy and its amendment towards “freedom of speech”, made an unlawful decision by allowing many public places like libraries and schools to apply censorship and ban books. Literature and any other type of writing are all types of freedom of speech because it allows each author to express themselves and their message through their work. With the authority of censorship and banning of books in a democracy like the United States causes a danger to us because we would not have the ability to obtain certain knowledge that might help us in a significant way. Additionally, I think we would be affected if we did not read any of the short stories we read in class, for example, “Battle
The mass media filters information regarding politics to its viewers and the viewers are not provided with reliable information. This has caused the viewers to believe and interpret what is not accurate thus, affecting their judgement. It is believed that mass media results to press framing and selective exposure in order to protect the image of politicians and hide important information. Moreover, media is bias in shaping their preferred outcome and filters media content to its viewers. The themes that we managed to extract from these journals are press framing, selective exposure, media is bias in shaping their preferred outcome and filtered content.
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.
