Presentation by: Ary Coelho
Censorship is a big fat …

Creative censorship;

Censorship implementation;

Internet censorship.
What does Censorship means?

Censorship is the suppression of ideas


and information that certain people,
individuals, groups or government
officials have find objectionable or
dangerous.
Most of the time there is no
“freedom of speech!”
Rationale in Different types of
Censorship

•  Moral Censorship
•  Political Censorship
•  Religious Censorship
•  Corporate Censorship
Moral Censorship
Removal of materials that are obscene.

Example: Pornography, specially child


pornography.

Moral Censorship is a tool of social


engineering has many doubtful roots
in objective utilitarian or liberal
democratic morality.
Political Censorship

Occurs when governments take


distracting information and keep it from,
or purposefully issue it to, their citizens.

What does it do? It prevents free


expression that might foment rebellion.
Religious Censorship

Means by which any material


objectionable to a certain faith is
removed.

How?
Often involves a dominant religion
forcing limitations on less prevalent
ones.
Corporate Censorship

Is the process by which editors in


corporate media outlets intervene to
halt the publishing of information that
portrays their business or business
partners in a negative light.
Where there is Censorship, there is a Censor…

Censors try to use the power of the state to


impose their view of what is truthful and
appropriate, or offensive and objectionable,
on everyone else. The censor wants to
prejudge materials for everyone.
It is no more complicated than
someone saying,

"Don't let anyone read this


book, or buy that magazine,
or view that film, because I
object to it!”

Analysis


It seems that censorship still is in the control of the


information and ideas circulated within a society.

Nowadays, censorship was achieved through the


examination of books, plays, films, television and radio
programs, news reports, and other forms of communication
for the purpose of altering or suppressing ideas found to be
objectionable or offensive.

“the family, the church, and the state."


Analysis


How can we understand censorship, and the impulse to


censor?

Do people self-censor themselves?

Every society has had customs, taboos, or laws by


which speech, dress, religious observance, and sexual
expression.
Direction and aspects


I am primarily interested in the “no self


expression” of censorship.
Which people can’t express themselves how
they are supposed to because they have
been censured in a way and in their own
society.

Example: dress code, fashion sense, lyrics,


freedom, speech.
Target audience


I will be targeting teenagers and young adults


between 15 to 25

People that have been censured for being


“different”
Or tried to express what they feel.
Censorship for a better world…or not.

Thank you for watching.
