Now, in Japan, some members of Tokyo city assembly are trying to pass a comic and cartoon censorship ordinance to censor sexual contents even though there are no "victims" because they are fictional arts.

Freedom of expression in Japan is under threat.

with freedom of speech comes responsibilty. thats what ive subscribed to when writing and presenting written peices of work. when i do workshops with teenagers in highschool and jr high, i tell them that while i am there, the rules of grammar and punctuation are thrown out the window and that any words they create are poetic license. i used to tear pages from a rhyming dictionary and the teacher would make them put the book back to gether, but i would want them to each take a page with them. i wanted to show that disrespecting a book is when you dont use it to its full potential. i would not let them use profanity however i would let them use words to tell how others had described them.
i think censorship is necessory to rule out gratuitious sensationalisim. if you can imply something grotesque why show it to the point of exploitation? if you can imply something violent let the experience belong to the individual. art is not verbatium in my opinion. however for those times where the blunt raw form is necessary, then the art should be handled with care.
blanket censorship is not good, but using art as an excuse to act out addictions or abusive tendencies is not creative expression, its an extension of sociopathic behavior.

I think I get the gist of what you're trying to say here, but could you please use proper Capitalization and punctuation?

I feel that censorship, especially in schools is underestimating the intelligence of youth today. Youth are exposed to many more issues via technology and are capable of establishing comparisons and contrast to reality. Instead of denying access to certain issues or art, maybe censors should focus more on how to properly deal with these issues. Education on a topic is far better than denying appropriate information.

I am happy that almost everyone on this site is gaining immense amounts of understanding of the world around them, a group of open-minded individuals who value the life experience.

I just want to thank everyone, no matter where you are or who you are, you all are doing everyone a grand service in the constant reminding of the facts that we all deserve to know, and the questions we should all ask.

Censorship should never be implemented, because only the truth can set us free from the minds of those who care not for humanity.

If you live in a democratic society, make sure to keep up the fight for the right to know the truth!

I think that some censorship is required when it comes to explicit sexual content in films and novels. However, I also feel that schools limit a student's intellectual freedom by banning books they consider obsence.
For example, To Kill a Mockingbird has been banned in several schools due to the racial slurs, profanity and frank discussion of rape present in the novel.

I think that it's important for students to actually read a novel, no what novel it is and that right cannot be taken away from them.

I agree that censorship is bad.
However, no censorship does not mean that people can say whatever they want without any responsiblity.

I just think that without any kind of censorship, it's quite hard to make people responsible for what they publish

It can't be ; in any means, censorship can't be affair. Never! Some dictator imposed strict censorship of the media, cause they know that the media plays really crucial roles in democracy. Also, art, plays important roles. Not for just students, but for the whole right for human, censorship can't be right.

in this world, we have good and bad things. bad things need to be barred from influencing the society. if good things also has certain limits and restrictions, let alone bad things.

it's all about influence. we want something that benefit the society more. so, it is better if regulations are made as in the case of censoring the contents of some forms of arts.

an art doesn't necessarily need to be too extreme like depicting nudity because the influence it had on the viewers might derive something negative. we have to eliminate any possibilities that can create superb negative influence/message.

if we can control ourselves, it doesn't mean that others might too. cool

You said that if the regulations benefit us, we have to acknowledge it. But that's unfair : who can dare to say that some are useful, and some are useless? There is no standard which is beneficial to us.

we do acknowledged most good and bad things. who would decide which one is useful and which one is useless is our own self. we have brain to think.

we have many forms of cultures in this world. some cultures may have practices that are not suitable or even extremely rejected by other cultures. it's the same with arts. some arts might be forbidden by certain cultures. when we want to terminate censorship, at the same time, we are terminating our respect towards others.

talking about censorship in arts might have been linked with nudity, violence and any of its kind. those people who go against censorship are those people who are desperate with these things. i could not argue that these things do bring goodness to some people, but others might not be positively affected by these things.

if u wanna a world of arts without censorship, go for it. nobody is against you. but remember not to drag others who do not want it. keep it to yourself.

but for sure, we are now living in the world of censorship fit in the wrong place (as in the press)cool

I personally believe that the sort of sensorship is like to hinder our student i mean the students of our country from the knowledge of arts . The kind of censorship is like to make fool of ourself so there should no any kind of censorship in the arts subject if we say students will get bad impact of it then its our bewkoofi like we can coz students of modern era can get easily blue movies like all these things . so there should no any sort of censorship . here .

Essentially, I believe that censorship in the arts is unnecessary beyond where the art does not contravene laws (child pornography, hate crimes etc. And there certainly should not be pointless amount of money wasted on censorship boards and the like.
