The First Amendment to The United States Constitution provides all Americans with the right of free speech. Along with this right, we also have the right to view, read, watch and listen to content as we see fit. We believe if censorship is to occur, it should be the individual that makes the decision to do so for themselves and/or their own children. The American People do not need an entity of “higher authority” deciding for us what is or is not “appropriate material.” Intellectual freedom is precious, and we should all stand up for our right to make our own decisions.
Censorship is not only about media such as television, film, music, etc. It is also about big government and political agendas. It’s about art. It’s about the internet. In fact, censorship affects almost everything we interact with. Let’s be honest, any mainstream media outlets you may listen to or watch are censoring news stories, and “spinning” them toward whatever political party or special interest group they are affiliated with. This is just one example of daily censorship in today’s society.
Here at Censorship in America, we talk about these issues. We express our opinions and viewpoints. Most of our articles have to do with The United States of America, but we also write about issues in other parts of the world from time to time. We invite anyone and everyone to read our articles. We also encourage people to comment. We don’t practice censorship here, so if you leave a comment, it will be published in its entirety. The only time we do not publish comments is when it is found to be spam.
