Implementing Internet Censorship Laws & Regulations

             The Internet is a worldwide system of computer networks, its a network of networks in which users at any one computer can, get information from any other computer and sometimes talk directly to users at other computers. "Today, the Internet is a public, cooperative, and self-sustaining facility accessible to hundreds of millions of people worldwide” (Internet 1). Though The Internet has become the number one source for communication and information, it took its hit for providing unsavory information and influences on young adults. "Governments around the world, claiming they want to protect children, thwart terrorists and silence racists and hate mongers, are rushing to eradicate freedom of expression on the Internet” (Silencing The Net: The Threat to Freedom of Expression On-Line 1). Information is accessible to millions and millions of people all over the world in different languages. It's a way to express one's freedom of speech but does that mean it's a creation of platform for unwanted information and destructive websites? Publishing making of bombs, suicide guides and child pornography on the Internet creates a great deal of negative impact on children and young adults. It's a step every individual should take against eradicating this information from the Internet and being responsible when using the Net. Government strict measures on the Internet laws and regulation should be enforced for the safety and security of the community.

             "The Original motivation to create the Internet was an aid to the academic and research community. Today, there's no particular focus. Everyone and anyone can and does use the Net” .

             (Hahn 261). This means anyone who uses the Net can publish information for example, how to commit suicide. There are hundreds of websites where suicide methods are posted to encourage users to try out different ways of suicide. Is this called a freedom of speech in the right way?.
