We Must Fight Internet Hate Propaganda - We Must Fight Internet Hate Propaganda      This essay approaches the subject of the hostility to traditional American values presented by the internet. At a very deep level the world of the internet can sometimes seem indifferent and even hostile to morality. This is partly because internet culture is so deeply imbued with a typically postmodern sense that the only absolute truth is that there are no absolute truths or that, if there were, they would be inaccessible to human reason and therefore irrelevant(1)....   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

Internet Censorship: How it effects education - Internet Censorship: How it effects education How does Internet censorship effect education. That is the question that needs to be answered. Censorship cannot be completely done away with in schools, society, and the law would simply not allow it. The internet also cannot be completely censored, because the technology for that simply does not exist. People have various stances on this issue and they can be split up into four general groups: The Government, parents, students, and teachers. They all have different views on the issue, although who is right or wrong has not yet been decided....   [tags: Censorship]

Should The Government Effectively Censor the Internet? - ... As a democracy we should have no censorship lest we follow Chinas example and start dropping the hammer on any poor Joe who has the guts to question the government. As a democracy the government has to have the people on its side because we are the ones who give them the power to make decisions that affect all of us. But if they start to pass bills into law that allow monitoring of citizens on the web. That would allow agencies to spy on anyone because they might do something. One example of this is the recent Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act that was passed by the House of Representatives in April 2013....   [tags: reducing privacy, freedom of speech] 1037 words

Internet Advertising – A World Wide Waste of Time - Internet Advertising – A World Wide Waste of Time As I approach the Philadelphia bus shelter, I'm struck by the gaze of a familiar, yet ominous strongman. His aging muscles are backlit by a powerful fluorescent light. Intrigued, I approach the advertisement and begin to look at the copy.

The Online Fear - The internet has brought us information, convenience and time. From paying bills online in seconds to finding out information in a flash and even earning a college degree; the internet has proven to be a powerful tool.

The Church Must Church Stop the Pornograhy Epidemic in America - Pornograhy consumption has increased markedly over the last few decades, primarily due to advent and popularity of regular, affordable, and high speed internet connections (Eberstadt & Layden 13; "The History of Modern Pornography."). While pornography has been around for thousands of years, never has porn been as used or abused (8). This increase in usage is causing more problems than it is solving. Healthy perceptions of sexuality are being skewed as people are now relying on porn’s vivid and explicit images to provide sexual education, causing true intimacy to be lost amidst a desensitized sexual libido (Struthers 1; “What’s Wrong With Pornography?” 1; Dubinsky 1; Zillmann 27)....   [tags: Anti Porn Essays]
