Most people agree that the reason that the United States survives as a democracy is because of the freedoms provided by the First Amendment. With these freedoms revoked, the government could become too controlling (Ruschmann). Censorship also occurs when politicians commit crimes and feel threatened by the media. Political Censorship is unjust to the public because stories about the citizens can be posted on the Internet, and played on the news yet, the citizens have no control over this public display (Censorship). Although many people are against censorship, there are many pros to having the Internet and television censored.

So conformity not only causes people to behave in ways around people that is socially acceptable, it also can cause people to want to avoid people altogether. Conformity is a powerful tool used by a society to cause people to react and behave in ways that are either what is the most accepted way of doing something, or in a way that the ruling body wants in order to keep people under their control. It can have positive effects on a culture as well as negative ones, depending on the nature of the action and to the extent it is done. Brave New World warns us of what could happen if we allow ourselves to be controlled like puppets and become content with a static population.
Freedom of speech allows you to debate about a problem rather than getting in a physical confrontation. Freedom of speech is what people believe you need to solve something that 's problematic. People suppose freedom of speech is very much needed because without it we would be censored from speaking our mind meaning we can 't say what we want on social media or in person.

The government is only trying to protect us. With too much privacy bad decisions are often made. Our social boundaries are more stable than ever.

Even though they did give the media this right, and we as citizens the right to use it, they still found fault with the nation as a whole. Otherwise, citizens would have been given the chance to directly elect those they feel represent them the best. The question of why they did this remains, but the fault lies at the feet of the media for keeping the citizens left uninformed and unable to cast a reasonable vote.

Protect Our Ethics: The Choice between Freedom and Morality The United States is guided by strict, moral laws that attempt to keep America ethical in nature; however, the laws concerning censorship are not as strict as some citizens would like them to be. Some people do not know how censorship can help society, but “it is the restriction, absolute or merely to some part of the population, by the proper political authorities, of intellectual, literary, or artistic material in any formant” (Free), which can help keep provocative images to a minimum. Censorship laws are bent which causes certain material to get past the censorship laws. The media exposes American citizens to many types of provocative messages, such as those found in music videos, pornography, radio, and even normal advertisements on television. The entertainment media is one of the biggest aspects of the world today, affecting society both positively and negatively.
The focus on ownership of the mass media is a threat to democracy, as a small, influential group of media owners can control access to ideas and information that are published.

However some people disagree with this saying that the media can actually promote democracy because anyone can put his or her views across, by making a website or a newspaper, spreading leaflets, putting up posters, and other means of communicating ideas. Also the widespread variety of privately owned media means a variety of opinions are considered and public debates happen. By criticizing the actions of governments, the mass media can play a significant role in keeping the government in touch with public opinion.
