Battling Internet Censorship Must Evolve, Study Says

Battling Internet Censorship Must Evolve, Study Says | Pros and Cons of Censorship | Scoop.it

As shown by recent studies conducted by the BBC, countries like China and Iran are censoring their country’s internet access during times of political crisis, such as the Tiananmen Square protests. Limiting the access to the public of information concerning what is happening in their own countries is the work of the government trying to limit the knowledge of the citizens of how the country deals with crisis. By censoring the internet of government related articles, the people are not shown the opinions of other citizens that have been expressed in protests and riots in other parts of the country. The governments do not want other people being exposed to the opinions of the ones making the events that should be posted all over the internet. This is the same logic used in Fahrenheit 451. In this novel, books were banned because the government did not want people reading the opinions that others published in books, because that meant that the readers may form that same opinion as well. The government did not want to deal with the consequences that could come from many people forming the same opinion, so the people were not allowed to read books. By limiting the citizens’ knowledge of their country’s events in China and Iran and not letting people read books in Fahrenheit 451, the government is trying to protect itself, while harming and limiting the mind of all of the people in the country and area. The reasons behind censorship of political affairs in foreign countries and in Fahrenheit 451 share a common background and base for being implemented.
