Censorship: Unconstitutional Essay, Research Paper

Against Censoring Harmless Obscene Language

Why the !@#$ would any &*$% head want to censor @#$ &*$% offensive language? I

mean what the !@#$??

Did any of that offend anyone? Would it if I had used the actual words?

I hope it wouldn’t because I sure didn’t intend for it to. But then again, if

it did, well, don’t take this personally, but, you don’t need to be reading this.

I’m sorry, but I am not forcing you to. No one is. Close your eyes if someone

puts it in front of you, sing the Macarena a loud if someone reads it to you,

whatever. The fact of the matter is, freedom of speech is the law. I have in my

hand, not that you would know this, the Constitution of the United States of

America. In this constitution, there is this little thing called the Bill of

Rights which contains the first ten amendments, the first being the freedom of

speech. Article I of the United States Constitution states, “Congress shall

make no law?abridging the freedom of speech.” Translated, this asserts that I

can say what ever the !@#$ I want to.? Ooh, I’m sorry, I hope you closed your

eyes and washed your ears out with soap. If not, too $%@# bad!

My belief is that nothing should be censored. Nothing. It is every

person’s right and responsibility to shield him or herself from any language and

other audio and visual provided I do not say anything false which could hurt

another person’s reputation messages that is found demeaning to the individual.

One person may find my !@#$%& language offensive, yet another may find my

language rather humorous and meaningful. I feel that when I use offensive

language, I am more thoroughly stressing my point. Allow me to demonstrate my

point. I have just been shot in the knee cap on my way to the Noble Prize Award

Dinner, and I will now be disqualified as a contestant for the Noble Peace Prize.

I then say to the bad man, “Ow?that hurt. Why?did you?do?that?to me?” The man

who has done this awful deed will feel no remorse and carry on whistling It’s a

wonderful life. Now, let’s try this again with a more meaningful message. “Son

of a !@%$#!!! What the !@#$ did you @#$ &*$% do that for you #$%& ^*%&$ #$$

%&$% $&*% &$ $%*$%????” The man will now have a better sense of what pain he

has brought me. He will still obviously run and hide and do nothing about what

he did, but he’ll more than likely feel more guilty for what he did.

Censoring is a big issue in this country, yet there is no need for all

this pointless arguing and bickering. There is nothing that gets displayed on

television, in the movies, or on the radio that is not already roaming the

streets in the real world. Everyone uses offensive language. Why should it be

censored on television? It is not causing anyone any harm. “Sticks and stones

can break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” This old rhyme makes a valid

point. If I put a gun to your head and pull the trigger, I’ll more than likely

hurt you; if I say you are a @#$%, I’ve only offended you but have caused no

real damage. Everyone should learn this phrase and keep it around to remind

themselves that no harm is being done to them. And if they still feel as though

they do not want to hear anything that they find offensive, then they should

just turn down the volume, walk away, dance a jig while singing the theme to

“Barney”, or all three at once. I don’t care.

There is only one concept that can even begin to argue for the side of

censorship and that is morality in conjunction with personal feelings. However,

that is not good enough because no one has the same personal feelings on

morality, and no one can compete with the law. As long as there is balanced

dispute among the people of the United States, the law will not and can not

change. People can argue it, people can attempt to change it, but for now the

law declares that every person has a right to their freedom of speech, and until

that law is changed, which would be unconstitutional to do so, censorship of

language is illegal. Unfortunately, no compromise can legally be made on this

issue. The only way to legally have forced censorship is to change the law, and

in order to do that, the country will need some new congressmen. To put it

simply, no one can be forced to censor obscene language until the law is changed.

All the people of the world have their own beliefs. Mine is simple. I

am strictly against the censoring of harmless obscene language. In fact, one

could say that I even encourage it. It really helps to get one’s feelings

across to other people. And in addition to this, there is the legal issue which

states that no rights of speech will be abridged by Congress. And if you know

me, you’d know that I’d be the first to follow the law and back the government
