Hey everyone. I have to do a public opinion poll for my US Government class, and was wondering if anyone here would like to help by answering one simple question.

 

Note, I don't want this to turn into a flamefest, which is why I kindly request that you don't post what you voted for. Just vote above and then that's it :)

 

Thanks in advance everyone : )

Huh... I'm torn between how the government would abuse the ability to censor what they don't like. And how I couldn't trust the self controlled media as far as I could throw them...

 

I picked "against" because its the the lesser of two evils.

Hmm, tough call. We do have freedom of speech, but sometimes we need censorship. If not just for the kiddies' sake, sometimes censorship of the media can save lives or the safety of the country.

 

I'm gonna have to say, to some extent, for.

I'm against alot of censorship. If I could have, I would have added 2 more options, kind of for, or kind of against. But it has to be simple yes or no answers, because I believe I'm with IG. There needs to be censorship, but very little and to an extent. For instance, I don't believe in porn on NBC primetime, but I wish that they'd show more stuff like the comedy central secret stash.

Against. Censorship is the antithesis of democracy. Without knowledge of reality, people cannot make informed decisions when they vote. Thus, censorship should be eliminated - particularly from factual reports - and it should be, at the very least, under suspicion wherever it shows up, regardless of the purpose it's used for.
