I remember thinking as a child that censorship was invented by certain adults that blamed exposure to certain things for making them something they were ashamed of being.  And so they thought censorship would mold children and in some cases adults into becoming something different or in their opinion better than what they are or what they wanted them to be which is no different than trying to control people and not letting them   make appropriate decisions for themselves based on the knowledge they have.  And that is similar to you saying that there are people who don't have the confidence that many of us will make good life decisions if we are exposed to certain truths.

I agree,
If you don't like what I'm saying - don't listen. If you don't like what I'm wearing - don't look.

Thanks for the thoughtful comment.  I like it when I post something that sparks my interest and in return receive even more knowledge.  Love the unique vantage points.   Having a narrow mind will impede so much.  Sadly there are far too many of them.

On a lighter note...I notice I have been able to base my perspectives in the eyes of love.  Peace finds me a most prolific outlet.

Hi mysteria-
Censorship is the suppression of something regarded as objectionable. I don’t like it because most often those defining what is objectionable are too narrow minded. The ironic thing is that often things become popular merely because they are suppressed. People automatically want what someone says they can’t have.
