Clash Of The Voices George Washington once said, "If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter"(Grasso). Freedom of speech has been a delicate subject for a while now and it has escalated now because of the Charlottesville attack(Pearce). When it comes down to whether some free speech should be censored I think that it should be censored because if you start censoring people's beliefs and ideology you basically are killing the purpose of free speech. Now imagine our country without the right to say what we want we would have dictators like Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Saddam Hussein running our government. Free speech is needed now more than ever because our country is divided
National security has altered several of our amendments taking away our freedom of speech, freedom of unreasonable search and seizures, freedom of being held without charge, and much more. One of the most well known amendments is freedom of speech. However, after 9/11 it 's not so much a “freedom” as it is a “privilege”. “The Patriot Act broadly expands the official definition of terrorism so that many domestic groups that engage in nonviolent civil disobedience could...find themselves labeled as terrorists” (Eroding Liberty).

In the book “Latimer and Ridley” Latimer said this quote as the two men got burned alive for believing and protesting in something that did not go along with the queen. I believe Bradbury will use this quote to represent the same scenario but in a more modern time. Perhaps instead of deepening religion against the queen, it will be deepening knowledge against the government.
Something allowed in the United States could easily be prohibited in Arabia or Pakistan, everything depends directly if the ideas are taken as disrespectful or insulting to a person, religion, among others, and are all control and regulated by each state government. The control in the media is, as any other government action, full of pros and cons about the reasons and results it gives. On one hand, it is important to put a limit on the kind of information, images, videos and others that can get to the population. Sometimes, the citizen from a specific nation is not ready to understand fully the material given to him, especially if this citizen is a child.

The federal government should not have the ability to monitor your activity without a warrant without a just cause.
