One voice does not make any difference, regardless how much effort is taken by that person unless he or she collaborates with few others who shares the mutual thought. The true freedom of speech lies at the social network. Malaysians are able to post or start a topic in a social network, gathering followers who agree to the opinion and thoughts. The opinion is however not usually brought to the government directly, most awaits a government represented to notice the matter and brought to the government for further act. There have been few groups who used the freedom of speech to react certain things against the government but they were denied by the government and also were prioritised.
Censorship has played a very effective role in society, government and our social media, but it’s affecting a lot more than just that. What role does censorship play in America and what guidelines should be used to ban books, videos, and articles written produced for public use? Mrs. Winstead says, “I think it is absolutely necessary for us to ‘self-censor’ meaning that we should all be able to decide what we want to read, listen to and create.” Jared Harter says, “Some things should be censored, because they might be too ‘inappropriate’ for certain age groups”, and that lawmakers SHOULD have the ability to censor material they find inappropriate. Censorship while it always includes limiting or eliminating access to certain thoughts or resources, includes some approaches.
Even when someone meets the requirements of using it, they will not be able to access any real information because “the internet is filtered by the Korea Computer Center, which ensures that only “acceptable” information can be accessed through the network” (Sedaghat). North Koreans are not only being censored from the truth in news and media, but are also not allowed to have any
In the US specifically, studies show that the stricter gun laws are in a state, the lower the amount of deaths related to guns occur (Graham). While many believe that further restrictions on guns would not be feasible, both Australia and the United Kingdom managed to highly restrict or ban guns from their nations in order to reduce gun-related deaths and crime (Graham). Australia was able to rid the country of around 650,000 guns and their rate of robberies per 100,000 people sank from about 100 to 60 (cite later 1). This program of complete gun confiscation costed Australia $230 million. If a program of the same relative scale were to be done in the States, it would cost the government around $4 billion (Rieck).
This is done to protect children or sensitive people, or to promote or restrict political or religous groups. Throughout history, censorship has been used since ancient times, of course, in different shapes and forms as modern day censorships. Example s of old censorship could be for example an emperor or dictaror banning certain type of knowledge or ideas from another place in a book form for example. Now a days, censorship is a very impirtant part of society, especially with the introduction of the internet. Usually, we relate the word censorship with pornography or nudity.
Censorship can be described as the act of cutting out certain material that can be considered obscene or inconvenient for the community. This material can be found in social media such as in the TV, radio, or the internet. Censorship can be challenged because of the first amendment: freedom of speech. Free expression is the right of expressing opinions and ideas without any fear of being restrained or censored. However, freedom of speech does not include the right to incite actions that would harm others or the distribution of obscene material (Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts, 2000).
I´m going to write about some topics you might have to be extra bevare of when it comes to the internet. People lie There are many stories about people who meet others at the internet. And sometimes the people are honest about who they are. But unfortunate in the most cases, people lie.
Similar to Frisby, this is a regulation of a virtual traditional public forum for a substantial government interest that is sufficiently narrowly tailored to meet that end. Just like the valid ordinance that limited where protestors can picket, Section 202.5 limits where the individual can go, and does not target based on what the message conveyed is. Essentially the statute is content neutral because it regulates one’s ability to access the website in the first place not what is being expressed. Section 202.5 is a specifically a content neutral time, place, manner regulation of protected speech because it bans registered sex offenders from accessing Facebook, which inadvertently limits their expression of speech on the social networking
Australian prisons cost 2.6 billion each year, while we could reduce that and use it to found homeless people which we only spent $65 million over three years to support the homeless. We could increase that. If Australia reinstates the death penalty. Overall I think Australia should reinstate the death penalty because it would cost less, people would not want to commit crimes or be a repeat
This prohibits the government from interfering. Statutory regulation is when the government is allowed to control the organization. If government officials have control of journalists they are able to regulate exactly what information is distributed to the public. They can easily pick and choose or alter the information they want you to see for their own political or personal interest. Alan Greenblatt, states in his article “Free Speech at Risk” that, “It should continue to fall upon the press to ensure that the standards it embraces are of the highest order of professionalism and integrity.
The most recent Canadian legislative response to the threat of terrorism is Bill C-51. Bill C-51 is a very controversial piece of legislation because it infringes on some basic rights and freedoms that us as Canadian citizens deserve such as allocating more power to police services and security institutions, raises privacy concerns, since the act would allow federal institutions to share private information with the RCMP. Bill-C51 doesn’t just affect Canadians but the whole world, this is due to everyone being connected by the internet and allowing federal institutions to share private information could cause many concerns with our very own privacy. For example Bruce Schneier believes that security should be separated into two different categories, Feeling and Reality. Schneier stated “ Poor understanding of risks or costs leads to feeling won’t match reality.”
In the Constitution Freedom of the press protects the right to obtain and publish information or opinions without government censorship or fear of punishment. One regulation I thknk the government should have on freedom of press is if an article is deemed as slander or violates a federal law than I think the government should be in control. However, if we allow government to control this freedom completely than how would we know if the news was legitimate or just what the government wants us to hear. In totalitarian regimes to create rule, the government inevitably controls the information to which the public can access. This is a huge problem to because it allows the government to determine what is worthy of the news.
Google removes RTBF data from the report The new law called Right to be forgotten is designed to protect the privacy of internet users over the web. Several countries are becoming increasingly aware of the privacy issues that users face and taking actions in the form of RTBF law in order to protect the consumers over the web. The date regarding the RTBF request were removed from the Google’s transparency report that has given rise to new concerns among the users regarding their online privacy.
“Firearms amplify domestic violence, resulting in American women being 11 times more likely to be murdered with a gun than women in similar countries”(Gun Laws Matter). As an example of gun control in its works, Australia’s gun violence statistics show how successful these laws can be. “The chances of being murdered by a gun in Australia plunged to 0.15 per 100,000 people in 2014 from 0.54 per 100,000 people in 1996, a decline of 72 percent... In 1996, Australia had 311 murderers of which 98 were with guns.
Mamamia also states that “The 2012 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) measures the numeracy, literacy, and science skills of half a million 15-year-olds around the world… Australia’s ranking fell in all subjects from 15th to 19th in Mathematics, 10th to 16th in Science and 9th to 14th in 2009.” This shows how far we are falling behind other countries, whereas Asian countries like China, Singapore, Korea and Japan are pulling ahead of Australia. Our students of the 21st Century aren’t getting smarter.
