The Effects of Censorship

Summary: Censorship has a daily negative impact on our present-day society, as news articles, television shows, radio broadcasts, music, and other content for public viewing are affected. Altering such products unjustifiably changes the meaning that the creators of those products originally intended, thus limiting their freedom of expression.
Censorship Bringing Down Society

Every day, news articles, television shows, and even radio broadcasts are taken away from your viewing. Opinions are being crushed and ideas are not being realized. Everyday, content is being censored from your lives. Content that was made for the public to view.

The idea of anything being censored is atrocious. Authors purposely create their work to express themselves and their opinions. In consequence of censorship, the public would not be able to receive the main idea of the product for which it was intended. However there are opinions and facts that support both sides to this controversy.

In any case, music, movies, and books are written as an individual idea. These creations are personal views that are being expressed to society in a whole to teach, entertain, or relate to the public. To alter these things is to change their meaning.

Despite the portion of the public that finds some of these things offensive, the majority of society would be prohibited to hear what the author or artist is trying to convey. Naturally, when censorship is employed, the product is altered from its original purpose. With information taken away, its foundation is raped and no longer has its individual idea.

Of course I can see how people who just don't enjoy to be in the presence of foul language or nudity, can be offended by vulgar displays of expression. Whether it is elementary students, sensitive, or religious people, there are bound to be those who are at some point uncomfortable by one individual's work or another. Nevertheless, these people could simply ignore or disregard the subject in which is formerly being advertised or displayed instead of making it so nobody else can view it.

As has been assumed, there are people who would agree with my opinion on this atrocity. And would very much like to see this enormity subverted just as I. An emphatic gesture of disapproval by such people has lead to my betrayal on the text. It is my desire to persuade people that censorship is not acceptable worldwide. Evidently it seems the government has evaded the subject that has occurred. In order to change this idea of censorship, it will take a strong, loud voice of unanimity to bring censorship down and let freedom of expression to reign untarnished.
