Internet Censorship: An Orwellian Nightmare BY: Joshua Reed

China and North Korea have been under control by Communist dictators since the early nine-teen hundreds, and Iran has been under the control of radical Islamists since the nine-teen eighties. These countries openly push for internet censorship, and the United States should not emulate these countries.

Facebook was accused earlier this year of censoring conservative news pages.

Twitter has banned some of their users because said users voiced unpopular opinions.

YouTube has banned and censored certain pages because of the content, which is not sexual or violent, which they disagree with politically.

Freedom of speech is so important that it was included in the first amendment.

The American legal system is the best way to fight against internet censorship.
