Censorship during wartime
Can ideas threaten a nation? Is censorship ever justified?
(39 postings)

Devyn M i think ideas can't threaten a nation because there are so many ideas in this world and they are just thoughts. Censorship can be justified sometimes because some things that are justified don't need to be heard.

Laura Burch I think that ideas can threaten a nation because when Hitler had the idea to make everyone the same it ended as a massacre of hundreds of innocent people. It took Germany a very long time to recover from the war that Hitler's idea started. I think censorship can be justified some of the time because it can help keep people's rights.

Michael Vue Can ideas threaten a nation? Well I believe that only a few ideas can threaten a nation. Yes censorship is sometimes justified, because of all the grotesque things people or peoples can do to humiliate another person or country.

Hunter Haas I think for the most part ideas can not threaten a nation, unless the majority of the people have the same idea. I belive that censorship never could be justified if it even did still exist.

Alyssa Anderson I think ideas can threaten a nation, because if you get enough people to believe in a radical idea, things could get BAD.

Madeline Carlson I think that ideas can threaten a nation because if certain people get a certain idea about a sensitive topic, then it could be fatal.

Kara Ideas can threaten a nation. People can think and have radical ideas, which can threaten the government.

Destiney I think that the holocaust is verry interesting. Its very sad and I feel so bad for the people we have lost and the people who have lost family members and friends in the burning and in the death and concentration camps.

Paul It is up to our leaders to show us the validity of a great struggle. To suppress old ideas to protect the designs of the leader is to debase the validity of that struggle and of the leader himself. Old truths cannot become false at the whim of any political leader.
