They began to take over every type of national media, and in doing so controlled all public information. The German people were subjected to a daily diet of subliminal and overt propaganda- reinforcing their growing hatred of the Jews. And the Nazis didn't stop there, German children were also targeted; their history books were rewritten; new text books teaching Nazi ideology appeared... ... middle of paper ... ...y themselves would survive. Just as the Jews themselves carry some guilt for what occurred; so the passive, selfish behavior from the Nazi - ruled masses, must also. I believe it was Churchill who said, 'All it takes for evil to flourish is for the good to do nothing'.
No one can make you watch, read, or listen to anything. So, if you do not like what is on television, there is a simple solution: close the book, change the radio or television station. Supreme Court Justice William Douglas said it best when he stated, “Restriction of free thought and speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us.” Does America want to take the chance of destroying everything on which it was founded, and possibly destroy itself? It is something we, the people, need to sit down and think about.
Propaganda within Nazi Germany was therefore taken to a new and frequently perverse level and was a crucial part of Hitler’s plans (Welch). He claimed, "Propaganda tries to force a doctrine on the whole people... Propaganda works on the general public from the standpoint of an idea and makes them ripe for the victory of this idea," in his book Mein Kampf, in which he first advocated the use of propaganda to spread the ideals of the Nazi party, including racism and anti-Semitism (Welch). Hitler and the Nazis had two main propaganda tasks. First, they hoped to ensure that none of the media or news presented in Germany contained anything hostile or damaging to the Nazi Party.
Internet regulation will tend to curb the freedom of expression. The Internet is a modern day symbol of the freedom of speech we have in our society. The government has no right to tell us what we can and cannot do in our homes. As no one is forcing anyone to go to any specific area of the Internet so the choices we make our own free will. I feel that the government is clearly violating our rights.
The first amendment states: Congress shall make no law representing an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or of the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and petition the government for a redress of grievances. Notice that the law applies only to the government, its laws, or its agencies. Not to any religious groups, retailers, or record companies. Hard to believe, but only in rare cases is what we call "music censorship" actually a violation of civil rights. For any group besides the government to censor music is entirely legal.
