Whether it's through a smartphone, computer, Twitter, Facebook, or email. Because the internet is such a pivotal tool in everyday life, that is why the looming question of to what extent the government should have over monitoring the internet is so important. The legality of content monitoring is still in the works and the government has not yet finished regulating how much reach such monitoring programs have on the American people. It also appears that even with practically unlimited resources provided by the US government, the NSA surveillance program played a small roll in actually catching terrorist and criminals. Even though government monitoring has potential to be useful, but it falls short in that it doesn't necessarily work and has is very easy to abuse.
International internet restriction could only create unneeded problems and further separate cultures across the globe. Net neutrality is a vital concept that provides a framework to success for the future of information technology. Legislation created by the United States will set precedent for the rest of the world. There is still time to repeal the FCC’s ruling, however society must act fast and efficiently. While most of the describe could be a worst-case scenario, it is still very possible.
When a journalist wants to report an article, interview, survey, etc. they cannot report what people need and/or want to know, they can only report what the government wants the people to know (“Censorship Effects on Society”). They do not have the freedom to express what they really want to which deprives them of their rights. The United States and many other countries see the internet as a threat and a means of control which is why information of the World Wide Web is censored (Bennett). It is believed that the government censors as a way to have control not to protect citizens; by knowing more, they have the upper
Beatty 's motives were to protect himself from higher powers, revealing that people will do almost anything to protect themselves or people they love. In the book Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, after driving to Montag’s house, Beatty asked him to burn it down. Some would say that this was Beatty’s challenging Montag or that Beatty was doing right and protecting himself. However if Beatty had not taken the calls and burned Montag 's home down, he would have had consequences for disobeying the rules. The government in the book had been brainwashing their citizens into believing books were bad for society and were constantly distracting them.
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
If the United States government were to sift through the information they found through monitoring, and they found something they did not like, they may try taking steps to remove the data from the internet. The minute that the government starts to do something like that is the minute that we stop living as American citizens and we start living as citizens of a police state. However, there are some exceptions that can be made. Terrorists and terror groups, most notably ISIS, have begun to put propaganda and promotional materials online for people all around the globe to access. Thus the problem of national security arises and the United States government must do something to stop American citizens from joining some of the most evil and anti-American groups out there.
He feels treated unfairly because the government of the US told the government of Sweden, if they did not get rid of the popular page “The Pirate Bay” they would stop all trade between these 2 countries. Peter Sunde suggests that people should stop listening to music of the entertainment industry etc. He defines that this entertainment industry is corrupt, and to stop this we all have to go against them
Censorship is all about deciding on what people can see with in the media that revolves around the world. Censorship puts a wall around harmful, sensitive or inconvenient speech or communication. All around the world censorship has taken place to limit certain material to the public that leaders didn’t want them seeing or listening to. According to Mob Notes, it states, “Two-thirds of the world 's internet users live under regimes of government censorship” (Mob Notes). Restrictions to media around the world could bring positive and negative outcomes to society.

With the emergence of new media such as the Internet, fans are given a new space to express their admiration and love for different media texts and personalities. Also, through the Internet, fans are given the chance to interact with other people with the same interests and share works which prove their admiration to a certain kind of media text.

When we think of propaganda, thoughts of dictators swaying their civilians to believe in a wrongful cause or which leads to a biased opinion. These tactics eventually collapse on themselves when the truth comes to light, but propaganda tactics are still being used today so oil companies and gray infrastructure advocates can continue to destroy the environment. Conservatives, along with their news networks such as Fox, use propaganda to make viewers believe environmentalist 's are whiney liberals who don’t get what they want, and need to get over it. This is in fact not the truth; when environmentalists come across a barricade in their path to success they climb over it and continue to find ways to protect the environment and spread the benefits of green infrastructure all around the world. After viewers are swayed to think negatively of advocates for green infrastructure they are given a spew of biased information such as climate change being a myth, oil companies helping the people, and protesters protecting their right of free speech.
