SL GeekSpeak – Censorship and our resistance to it. June 10th at 12pm SLT

Most people know that they live in a world where speech and images are censored, on television, in films, on social media.  There are some things that cannot be said and that we are not allowed to see.  But does anyone know how much is censored or who decides what is to be censored and why?

What would happen if nothing were censored?  Would that mean freedom or disaster?  Do you think we need more censorship?  Does censorship make some people more free?  Does it protect us from bullies or perhaps from actual violence?

Who is in control of the censorship?  Did we vote for the censors?  If we didn’t vote for them do they have the right to censor us?  Who do you think should be in control?  Should we know who decides what is to be censored?

Come to GeekSpeak to ‘take the news from behind.’
