This writer of this paper examines both sides of the controversial internet censorship debate and asks if instituting regulations that would censor certain websites and materials infringes on our basic human rights. Those who support internet censorship and those who oppose it both agree that adults must provide children with a safe and supportive environment in which to play and learn. This paper discusses the child protection and adult censorship debates which are often confused. This paper also details the various methods and strategies in blocking questionable websites on computers that are accessed by minors.
From the Paper:"This issue is an ongoing fierce debate both here in America and across the globe. Much of the debate is centered around practical concerns about any kind of solution. I therefor think it necessary that we examine our issue at hand both within ethical and practical concerns. If we come across too many practical problems, we may find that regulation may indeed need to be in the hands of the individuals. But as I intend to show, I think there are several viable options that clearly and effectively would regulate the current status of the Internet to which I am objecting."
