The Restriction Of Free Internet Content And Freedom Of Speech

Why on earth would anyone want to restrict free content on the internet? Contrary to popular belief, there are some activists out there who are urging for censorship on the internet. This is not only a problem here in the United States, but it has become an issue in other countries around the world. And by “problem”, I mean the people that are creating the fuss. The internet is the hub where free speech is expressed and your voice can be heard all over the world. Why suppress that? At the end of the day, the responsibility and right to filter information belongs to the user. It is quite simple to prevent certain types of content if you don’t want it. So why not keep freedom of expression alive? This way, we can continue to progress as one society.
