Without the established government restraints on freedom of speech like decided necessary in Schenck v. United States, harmful speech could be spread creating dangerous environments. When considering the massive influence that music has on the public, censorship is a productive way to prevent immediate damage to a person 's “psychological or physical” health (Amy, and C. Ames Cushman). When reviewing the song “Fuck Tha Police” by the group N.W.A, “it was believed that action was needed to be taken because the song took a “radical stance that pointed out a certain group” (Aliprandini, Michael, and Geraldine Wagner”). The origin of the concept behind the popular and explicit song “Fuck The Police” traces back further than the eighties rap group known as N.W.A. The song resulted in people expressing disgust to the police while protesting, or rioting all over the world.
Flames, tear gas, riots, city blocks destroyed; all consequences of a single statement. In today's modern society, acts of derogatory communication, known as hate speech, have become a controversial topic in America. Although hate speech is awful, it should be protected by the first amendment. Hate speech should continue being permitted because omitting such phrases would set a precedent for censorship, and oppress the minority. Such censorship would lead to a totalitarian rule by the majority.
And although distinguishing between violence as pure entertainment and violence as social criticism is important, good intentions can still lead to terrible outcomes. The effect of viewing violent films has been insufficiently considered, yet plays a significant role in encouraging aggressive behavior. In 1922 the Motion Picture Producers and Distributers of America (M.P.P.D.A.) was created in response to national protest by several parent groups who feared that films suggested provocative messages to children, which would cause negative influences. Fearful that the... ... middle of paper ... ...gulations on the film industry.
It will still be able to thrash and writhe for a while yet in its death throes, and cause plenty of collateral damage in the lives of certain individuals, but it is ultimately dead meat” (Moore 249). The metaphor he uses is muddled because by trying to personify copyright it creates a cynical and different point than he is trying to make to end to his essay. Also, it does not tie into the introduction leaving the reader curious about how the opening and closing paragraph are related. The introduction gives all of these statistics of why music piracy is stealing. The closing paragraph gives a description of copywriting in the twentieth century is “doomed”.
It cannot be denied that there is an excess of violence in today's music. Eminem raps about spousal abuse and murder sprees, Marilyn Manson sings of anarchy, drugs, and atheism, and Limp Bizkit urges fans to "break stuff." Some critics argue that fans will take these words seriously, and act out on the urging of their beloved artists. However, if listeners aren't mature enough to know the difference between the fictional world these lyrics invoke, and the reality that they personally live in, perhaps they aren't mature enough to listen to it. If a young person seriously believes in the message he or she hears, perhaps it is because the parents have not done a sound job of teaching the difference between fiction and reality, between right and wrong.
Some people believe that censorship is the answer, others do not. I believe that this issue will be left up to the courts to decide. I fear that the media may become a swamp of regulations with no more entertainment value whatsoever, and I hope that this never happens. I think that the first amendment is a great right and that we should never abridge it.

Media violence leads people to have violent behavior. Media violence leads people at ideological offensive, and leads those to implement the violent behaviors because their ideological offensive could be justified in media. In the media, violence behavior always lends color to be beautiful, cool and proper. It conveys fallacy ... ... middle of paper ... ... This leads people to have a terrible world outlook.
Arguments exist today concerning the amount of responsibility that the media has to portray such violent crimes as unacceptable. The most popular of such beliefs is one that argues that the media is currently romanticizing the use of violence to gain an audience. Proponents of such an argument claim that if the media displays violence in a less glamorous way, interpersonal violence can be reduced. For this to happen, the nation-state must play the important role of regulating how much and what types of violence media sources can show, and to which audiences. Some people, mostly men, enjoy viewing or hearing about acts of violence.
Although upfront the film may seem like it is purely for entertainment, if one were to take a closer look it really exhibits the cruelty of war and not just of the Trojan war but of all wars. Petersen's expresses his distaste for war through the depiction of immoral and corrupt leaders' desire for power at any cost, the anguish of men forced to fight in order to protect their homes or their honor and the damaging influence of a society on its young men to procure eminence by completing impossible feats in battle. The first way Petersen divulges his animosity towards war is when he shows Agamemnon's insatiable yearning for power and his willingness to do anything at all to obtain it no matter what the cost may be. Although most people would avoid a violent war, a monstrous leader like Agamemnon would believe it to be worthwhile in order to have more power. Agamemnon says to Menelaus, “Peace is for the women and the weak.
