-- Christopher Maggio Middle Island Lectures On Media Rights - Christopher Maggio Middle Island Lectures
All in all censorship is needed in some cases but also not so needed. Why ban a book because it may contain a few profanities?
Why censor artwork that may be deemed as inappropriate?
Why not let your child play certain games or watch certain TV shows just because it may contain a few suggestive themes? It all comes down to how a person looks at it, because something you may find inappropriate I may not. Censorship can sometimes shelter people from “bad” things, but people need to be exposed to such things so they can ask questions, learn, and then use that knowledge to help them in the future.
