By labeling the show as a threat to children, it validates the negative effects on young children. But rather, the show should be viewed as a typical silly and harmless internet cartoon. The parents should discuss with their children about the entertainment they view on a daily basis should not influence their conduct or actions. Furthermore, if parents are truly concerned about their children discovering this type of content, they can take further action to censor these websites by setting a restriction and blocking them. There are many solutions to combat this alleged issue, and Ellison was very narrow minded throughout her argument.

Censorship is good for society People’s actions need to be controlled. For example, people should not want the government telling other nations about the next new bomb or weapon created. In society citizens do not want potential enemies knowing where government records are and where troops are going.In the book “Fahrenheit 451” censorship is a big part of people’s live’s .This world is a dramatized version of a censored society; everyone is self centered and involved in themselves. Censorship is needed for children, insuring morally productive people and creates safety in society.

A Challenge is wanting to take a book down based on a group of people or a person. Most challenges are unsuccessful though (Banned & Challenged). There is may reasons why books are challenged but most of the time is to protect children from information that may seem inappropriate to them at the same age. Books like The Great Gatsby was and were challenged because of material that is considered “sexually explicit, contained offensive language, or may be unsuitable for any age group.
The fact that things such as extreme violence, and even sex is censored from television and to an extent, in some movies appeal to those who are weak in the stomach, and most of all to parents. Parents will readily accept censorship in the media to protect their children from seeing or hearing unwanted material. This is evident in Brave New World, where books, movies, and even ways of life from before “civilization” are eliminated in society, and kept away from school children. In Brave New World, the children are encouraged to openly be sexual, as it is not a taboo concept; yet they are still nudged away from things like violence and love, since that has been eliminated in their world. There are positive effects of censorships.
According to the article “The First Amendment: Censorship,” speech is routinely censored due to bias, or personal issues with the content (First Amendment, 3). Also, in the article “Censorship Goes to School,” Nancy Day discusses how advocates for removing “hurtful and dangerous” books believe that they are protecting children, and that is more important than access to free speech (Day, 4). Because integrity in education is important, teachers should stay within the bounds and follow the requirements of education (First Amendment, 2). Author Zibby O’Neal said “We try to teach young people the first amendment rights, but then deny them a book” about repeated efforts to ban The Chocolate War (Day, 3).

Although it was only a day, missing school impacts a child’s education. Ironically, better-educated people were less susceptible to believing the rumors about Satanism, and thus didn’t take their kids out of
Censorship happens daily on TV and music for example when a news program shows something “graphic” like a shooting they censor the Graphic Material, to prevent young viewers or people who prefer not to see it. Music shows a great amount by removing or “bleeping” out inappropriate material, and by creating “clean versions.” In the future censorship will hopefully “bleep” out all curse words not just the really bad ones.

This will cleanse kids’ minds and kids will not be as exposed to cussing as they are today.
