U.S.History

i need to come up with a list of reasons why i oppose the idea that government agencies should regulate the internet, setting guidelines for its contents and limiting access to databases containing personal information.
all i have is that it would cut down on your freedom, and you wont get a choice on what you do on the internet.

  • U.S.History -

    Think about the freedoms guaranteed in the First Amendment.

    Think about repressive countries such as Saudi Arabia and China that severely limit internet access.

    Think about the wide variety of sites on the internet that expose people to a huge variety of ideas. How can a person learn to make wise choices about harmful sites and ideas if they're not available? Or is any knowledge harmful?

  • U.S.History -

    This would make a marvelous class discussion. I'd love to hear the responses from other students.
