Censorship is [redacted]

I was looking through an online conversation and realized that many of my friends are completely against online censorship.

Not just my friends but even people who are from an older generation are pretty much dead set against the idea of online censorship. So far so good.

But something odd happens when the same people discuss censorship on television or the movies. For instance the same people who cry hoarse against online censorship actually support some control on content being shown on television and the movies.

Risque advertisements, movies, film songs all get routinely targeted by various censors, some official, some unofficial and often with a large number of people supporting such censorship.

Censorship is censorship!

3 simple rules

  • Don’t like something on television – use the remote control and change the channel.
  • Do not like a particular adult movie – do not watch it.
  • Do not like a bold film poster – do not see it.

By the way if you did not like my views you are free not to read my blog. 🙂 See it is that simple.

    1. Yup. I call it the ‘Khule Saand’ syndrome where they say ‘Keep me in shackles, I lack the ability to take responsibilities of my actions’

      BTW thanks for visiting and commenting. 🙂

  1. LOL! I like the three-step process. I have never failed to understand the censorship even in DVDs. Such things only lead to more piracy. I would certainly prefer to have the entire story, nakedness and all, than have the Government cut out some parts and tell me what I need to watch. I’d say FO and download it.
