Should the US government be able to censor things from the US population?(Not talking about child porn or anything like that, just information and the like.)

Sure. I would expect nuclear bomb plans, specs for our military hardware and classified information to be censored. Do you think all info should be available? Covert operatives identities? Or were you talking about other types of censored material?

Material created, thought up, and fully owned by private citizens. Nothing in anyway owned by the government.

I'm talking North Korea, Chinese style censorship. Where they censor something because they disagree with an ideaology. Basically censoring for political reasons

I think zaphod is right, and you must remember that a lot of military tech has been created by private firms. It's considered a matter of national security to keep these things out of the hands of enemies. But the only thing that should be censored for national security purposes are things enemies could use to harm us. Opinions and dissenters should never be censored but they will probably find a way to make that stuff a matter of national security using some sick twisted logic and perverting the law and shitting on the constitution in the process.

Their logic will be, "this political ideology is causing citizens to become violent toward the government and other citizens, so this is a matter of national security and we must censor it for the safety of the kids!"

Ok for further clarification, this has nothing to do with military secrets. Nothing classified, nothing of that nature.

Then what the hell are you talking about? What's censored that you think shouldn't be?

Rest assured my friend that when they do strip the citizens of that right they will use some form of scare tactics to sucker people in to believing it is for the peoples benefit and the people will be to blind to see that they have just stripped them selves of yet another right. I say we fire the whole damn lot of them when I worked for DOD if you didn't do your job you were relieved of your duty. It made no difference to them. I seen it happen on a couple of occasions do to fraternizing and insubordination. I had to fill out there release forms and it sucked but they should have been doing their job.

Governments Control Internet Information

http://park.geocities.jp/jpcdebate/0103/p034....

But they don't control the information for the good of the ordinary people.

Far from it.

They control the information to the detriment of ordinary people.

They believe that the evil attitude helps them keeping power on the earth.
