Censorship In General

I'm tired of how censorship laws dictate the way I live everyday. Have you ever been watching tv, and the commercials say, "Now, Uncut And Uncensored." What's the need for the censors in the first place? Many of the kids who watch these programs have already heard the 7 words never to use. These are fu*ck sh*t piss d*ck coc*sucker Mother*ucker and whore. how many times have you heard these words? How many times have you heard them on network tv? Disregard south park. Also, when i went to greece, they have naked women on billboards and i was allowwed to drink red wine during dinner, becuase there is no drinking age. why must americans be so anal? its like if their child hears one bad word or watches one bad movie that their lives are going to be ruined. just like paintball going into the mainstream. the many people say that paintball advocates violence toward other human beings. that it promotes killing other living things. and most of these people are hunters who have mooseheads hanging in their offices. i wrote a letter to a tv station, and this is what they said, in their words.

Censorship is a right given to all human beings.

If censorship is a right given to all human beings, then shouldn't freedom of speech be so also? i believe that its our first amendment. if parents dont want their children exposed to violence or profanity on tv, then TiVO it... that wasnt an advertisment. Oh wait. Violence would include cartoons right? When Wile E. Coyote runs into a brick wall and all of his bones are broken, isnt that violence? When a kid on Baney falls and scrapes his knee and all the other kids laugh at him, isnt that violence? Americans are trying to fight a fight that they negate themselves. They cry "Censorship For All" and then go watch a Rambo movie...

I thought that this was kind of a problem, and i thought that i would share my view with you. feel free to flame the hell outta me for this one.

I agree censorship is retarded, but your points aren't all that great. A kid falling down on Barney and scraping his knee is not violence.

what i meant by that is that parents try to keep their children away from violence not only from blood and guts, but violence toward people. for example, if a woman were to get pregnant, people would call her a slut or a whore or something, and thats violence toward a person.

Nicely put. But you dont want some 3 year old looking at p0rno? Its just lazy parents who want everyone to do things for them. But with TV theres Tivo and on my digital cable it has rating stuff and if its R or something then you need a password. Its really not that hard. I'd here more swearing from the people installing the digital cable than I would watching the cable.

Is it the government censoring it, or the network? If it's the network, it's their right to tell their shows not to use certain words or show people nude. If it's the government...

I agree with you, i mean i have heard swears and that crap all my life, my dad doesnt care. Censorship is just a way to attempt to delay us from finding out what goes on in the real world. My dad agrees with me on this.

I enjoyed your cartoon part the most since that seemed like the best example. Parents are telling kids not to smoke and drink. But how many times on looney toons do you see bugs bunny smoking a cigar or another charecters hicuping because he drank too much. Elmer Fud has a shotgun and tries to kill bugs but just gets shot himself. Dragon Ball Z has blood and people getting thrown into cliffs. Pokemon has people getting electricuted and beaten up. Parents don't care about these things they only care if there kids hear the word ****. I personally don't see this as a threat. We are going to have to learn about it sooner or later. My opinion.

Nicejob conman i agree with you 100%.

read the book "farhenheit 451" or watch the movie "equilibrium".... they bare both instances of super-censorship to the point where peoples lives are controlled basically and we have no emotions due to it. censorship i think is ok on a certain level, but it seems to be getting rediculous day by day. more things are being cut from the radio and tv now... i dont understand why people feel it is their duty to protect everyone else from the "evils" of the world. we will be introduced to it at some point in life.... they are depriving children of everything else.

look back to when our parents and grandparents were growing up. there was barely any censorship, and they seemed to do fine. they are controlling everything nowadays. we cant even play dodgeball in elementary school anymore because its too dangerous. they take away any playground toy thats a hazard. they bleep anything remotely cursing on tv, radio, and music. every year it seems the rating system on movies gets stricter and stricter... its insane. teachers cant even talk about certain things in school without risking their career. it seems everyone is trying to be "politically correct" nowadays and trying to make everyone an equal. but you know what, we arent all equal. we are all a different person, and they should let that be. thats how we are who we are.

I was watching the news the other day, and they said Manhunt (made by Rockstar games) will be pulled from european shelves, because a 14 yr old who liked the game committed a murder. I doubt the game made him murder... I assume that playing the game only showed that he already had violent tendencies. (sp) I believe censorships should be removed, but parentals should control what their child can see. (so we dont end up with 3 yr olds looking at playboy or something)
