However, this idea overshadows how similar our countries really are. Censorship occurs everywhere, even in the “Land of the Free”. Things are swept under the rug and kept from people for the “greater good”, but should not the greater good be for people to know what is going on in the world they live in? People constantly post things just to have them removed; social media is a tremendous platform to inform and educate people on things that the news refuses to cover or hides. Concealing information and censoring the media defeats the purpose of the First Amendment and goes against the foundation of our country.
Along with the soldiers not being trained, they also never were there to guard the towers they were assigned. The soldiers don't really have to worry about being trained if they are never in the place they are needed. This may have been an ample reason that Rome fell. With the chance of enemies coming to attack with untrained soldiers plus them not watching out for the city on top of that, the city was bound to fall apart eventually. When the soldiers were where they were assigned, they were always complaining how heavy the armor was.
59) As Michel Foucault says, “Freedom of conscience entails more dangers than authority and despotism.” Besides enforcing censorship through incineration, the government also enacted ways of preventing an ability to desire further knowledge. After all, a naïveté enough group of people don’t warrant much physical power when being used for their ignorance.
They are forbidden to contact ordinary people in the outside world. They are also forbidden to marry or to give birth to a child” (Dudley). Along with people with disabilities, “inmates of political prisoners' camps are denied their basic rights, and routinely suffer from all forms of human rights violations including 12 hours of hard labor every day” (Dudley). Clearly human rights are being stepped on by this act of censoring out people with disabilities and criminals, which
Hate speech law does not prevent of exercising the freedom of speech but it has been found for reduce using freedom of speech and minimize making problems to other or causing harm to them.

Some people believe books should not be banned in schools/libraries but just because you do not like it does not mean it should be taken away, that is the authors freedom of speech. Also, some say that you should not be exposing bad behavior or language to students but in reality they hear and see these things everyday, and by banning a book, that is not protecting them. Writers have the freedom to write whatever they want and that is a part of the First Amendment, so why banned their book? “The First Amendment allows individuals to speak, publish, read and view what they wish, worship (or not worship) as they wish, associate with
In the book “Anthem” by Ayn Rand there is a society where everyone is the same. The book starts out by introducing Equality 7-2521, a young man who doesn't understand why he can’t follow the same rules as others. In “Anthem” people were never taught the word “I” but “we” because they should not care about anyone than the people around them. In the book it explains many different characters that break the rules for their friends. Having friends, looking at girls, talking to girls is not allowed.
Currently, the state of practice is such that people are opposed to the feeling of being manipulated without being aware of it and this has resulted in subliminal advertising being legally banned in countries like the United Kingdom and Australia. However, the notion of subliminal messaging is still used to secretly influence human decision making even when most evidence shows it does not have an influence.

This is to say that people may only be interested in subliminal advertisement when the product or service being advertised is linked to a need they may have. It can therefore
If the media sector and newspaper company did not follow those rules, the Home Affair Minister has the right to suspend the permit and refuse an application for a permit for newspaper and printing presses. On the other hand, Home Affair Minister can suspend the permit if any publication risk national security or create social conflict. The Minister has obviously restricted freedom of expression and also freedom of speech. The public always wants to know the truth and the first principle of journalism is truth and accuracy. Why do the Minister wanted to restrict from writing news regarding politics?
An interviewee who is a married immigrant did not report after the incident as her supervisor knew that she did not have the documents for staying in the USA, so he threatened her and continued to abuse her. She did not notice the rights to say “no” to the offender that she thought her illegal status and low social class made her unprotected by the legal system. Most interviewees also did not report the crimes because they felt ashamed and scared to be unaccepted or blamed by the society. It is suggested to deliver the message to the public that they have the rights to be protected from all kinds of crimes and emphasises the importance of immediate reporting of crimes to themselves and the society in order to solve the amount of underreported cases. Guidelines should also be given in helping the victims to understand the procedures of reporting abuse so that they feel supported (Frontline, June 30
