Reply To: Censorship and Government

Class Forums Government 2017-2018 Assignment 1 Censorship and Government Reply To: Censorship and Government


I believe that the government should censor certain things and for certain reasons. Censorship should exist only if it is helping man follow the commands of the Lord. If a government leader is enforcing censorship, the citizens should be informed of the benefits and reasons for it. Furthermore, I conversely propose that censorship of pornography or explicit media should not be taken away. Since man is inherently evil, he must learn what is good and what is bad, and giving restrictions until a certain age is simply hypocritical. For, the government is saying, “Suddenly, this is no longer harmful to you.” Therefore, we must trust in the Lord to reveal truth and goodness to government leaders so that we may follow laws that lead us to live justly, righteously, and upright.
