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
Their community also uses very strict censorship to restrict people’s emotions and understandings. The world’s increased censorship, such as blocking internet searches and certain books, would appall Huxley because he believes in individuals forming their own opinions in order to contribute to society in their own unique ways. In Brave New World, the World State bans well known works such as Othello and Romeo and Juliet due to the mental capacity of their citizens. The controllers decided to ban these books because they “...haven’t any use for old things ... and [they] don’t want people to be attracted by old things. [They] want them to like the new ones” (225).
While both philosophers’ writing can be very useful to the government in some ways. The leader should not be cruel or mean to the people but should know when to tough. The big difference is how they disagree most strongly on how a government should run and how they believe in war. They also disagree on when mercy should be given and how the money they own should be spent. Neither one of the ideas that they have for the government will work for the world today, because the world is not as good and peaceful as Lao-tzu describes in Tao-Te Ching, and not as chaotic or mean as Machiavelli says in The Prince.
Language and the usage of words is arguably humanity’s most powerful tool. It allows for mere thoughts to transform into ideas that can be shared with multiple individuals, whether this is through verbal or nonverbal means. Because of their ability to influence the masses, some politicians have used very calculated communication techniques to manipulate public opinion to their benefit, causing many Americans to view them as deceitful and untrustworthy. Over time, these techniques have become harder to detect, blurring the already thin line between fact and fiction. As it happens, what is supposed to be politician’s casual and conversational speech is sometimes compared to a subtle form of modern day propaganda.
Also, if the people do not believe in everything the Party says then they also will be taken away. In 1984, George Orwell shows the readers that the destruction of language and the past can be used as tools to manipulate people in believing in anything such things as, forcing society to speak only one language, putting up posters to persuade the people to believe in this saying
This society lived with no freedom and was restricted of their own language. These restrictions were built upon society so that the Party whom were in charge of everything could withhold power from their citizens. Restrictions upon their language, Newspeak was created purposefully to ensure that society could not obtain the knowledge of their language to overthrow the unjust society. The Party limited their language so citizens could not come up with developed thoughts to express and inform their audience of essential information that could have improved their lifestyle vastly. The article our group used to inspire our public service announcement was “We’re Living in “1984” Today ,” by Lewis Beale.
Orwell feels that these kinds of words are most often used in art and literary criticism and political speeches. These words are meaningless because they force the reader to give the words the meaning and the writer can in a way hide behind words such as dead and living instead of writing black and white. These words are a way for the writer to avoid saying anything that can be attributed negatively in their text and if they are the writer can argue that the reader misunderstood their meaning. The words also become meaningless because they might be used dishonestly. This sort of writing makes it so that words have dual meanings.
The News, considered this courts’ action as not valid. All in all case reached the Supreme Court. Governments’ representer was saying that information must have remained secret, The News claimed that such action directly abused their Freedom Of Speech rights. The Supreme Court decided that the prior decision that was made was not valid because it abused Freedom Of Speech rights. The News won the case.
The critiques will involve pointing out the errors together with the mistakes that one feels is a core principle in the cultural activity. If cultures were not making mistakes, then there would be nothing much to criticize. The major drawback with the no cultural criticism is that most of the dominant cultures around the world usually get criticized. Also, any given religion must be criticized when it commits an offense. For a given tradition to grow, there must always be some criticism.
Powerful authorities are widely installed in the mission of influence on the editorial policy of the media with the intention of appropriating, redefine and pointing toward the realization of their own interests without regard for the public, but not caring even for media that are viewed as another tool used in the way of creating capital. The biggest manipulators always point out that all their work, is work for freedom and in the name of freedom. Freedom does not mean licentiousness, irresponsibility and chaos. Freedom of compromising and destroying the universal values (truth, justice, good, love, beauty, solidarity and human dignity), to which it belongs, is not freedom, but verbal or written torture and spiritual violence. The media in the service of any power betray their mission, the place and role in society and the state.
