Rather than rehash an entire story, I’ll just summarize for the moment.
Censorship surrounds us and sometimes more often than it should or in places that it needs not be. Read up on the Rosenbaum’s Dilemma, Lost War Videos and Adwords Censorship as written by Wayne Porter.
I have a number of views on the topic of censorship. Far to many to simply list here in a single post. However, I will say, to me censorship is a personal thing. I should never be put in the situation to HAVE to view, read or otherwise witness something I’d find offensive. On the other hand, I should also never be at a loss for the opportunity to make the choice myself. Education is a ongoing everlasting process. Every moment we live and every choice we make adds to our own personal education and life experience. As adults we should find every chance we can to better our minds and our knowledge about the world we live in. Our children should learn from our examples, with the protection of our parental censorship…
but we should not take it upon ourselves to censor eachother as adults. Don’t hinder the learning where one might be able to make a difference.
So with that said,
I have dedicated the following two penguins to the message at hand.
