Why censorship is necessary ?
Obviously censorship in films and other medias is needed. The richness of today's films is present without government monitoring the contents, yet some types of films are offensive and even some types contain child pornography which leads to the increase of the sexual harassment phenomena.
What is censorship? Censorship is a form of prohibition and punishment. Censorship involves people's point of view on politics and religious issues, issues related to social side, sex, and norms and values. Media censorship does not infringe on our first amendment rights. It is necessary to keep extreme violence and sexual content out of the mainstream media. This is reasonable censorship and it does not damage our political rights to freedom of speech. Some censorship is permissible in order to protect children.
Governments claim that only they are capable of protecting children from 1. inappropriate" materials which led to the worst entertainment. They must take strict steps in the censorship board to completely ban those movies which are threat to the Egyptian culture; they also must examine the books, movies, and TV, magazines, radio, and internet sites. The government must also Changing the official staff of the medial ministry. They also have a duty to stop illegal materials (porn sites) being available through the internet.
How can people take someone's art that they have been drawing in their heart and soul
and then after finishing it they are told that is not appropriate and isn't aloud? For
some of us this is the only way they know how to express themselves but when they
are censored they think that it's wrong for them to bring out there feelings rather in films or any other Medias. However Governments should not play the role of “the Big
Brother”. children are too young to understand certain thing on TV. Parental control
and filtering of adult here should take place as content such as pornography and
aggressive language that is used. Adults have legal rights that children don't posses
yet. "Let censoring protect the kids, not violate our rights as grownups to view
whatever we desire to". Parents should stop being lazy they already have the rights
and control to stop their children from searching sexual sites or watching
inappropriate movies. But unfortunately parents don't because they are too lazy to do
it so they want everything easy and to be childproofed for them. Parents should be on
their Childs shoulders whenever they are surfing the internet or watching a movie that
supposed to be there job as a parent.
The advantages and purpose of censorship is good. Censorship is there to help protect
us and keep us safe from things that are not necessary for us to hear or see.
Censorship is good only if used correctly either for children or adults. Using it the
wrong way or senselessly then you're only harming the society. In my point of view I
say yes I believe that some censorship is needed. If nothing is censored, who knows
what will be said out of the radio, television, news, ect, and anything that is not
supposed to be said can cause war between medias or even countries. Censorship
should not be over and above, but it should always be around.
Some believe that they should be free to decide what they read, see or talk about,
because they think they are mature enough to know what is good and bad. Others feel
that censorship is pointless today, because nowadays people can travel to other
countries and read or see materials unavailable in their countries. It is also impossible
to block materials on satellite or in the internet. After the prime minister of Egypt “
Ibrahim Mehleb “ decreed the banning of the screening of The movie “ Halawet
Rooh “ The sweetness of spirit for reevaluation by the censorship, because of
