Is freedom of speech more important than future of our children? It is not easy question to answer because in both situations it is about future of society. New technologies make internet the part of people"s daily life. That is way it becomes difficult to control content that have never had problems with other types of media. Some countries such as China, Australia and India censor some parts of the internet, blocking some tags and websites with violent content. When people hear the word "censorship" a lot of fears appear like freedom of speech will be banned. However, the internet may be censored in a way that it becomes peaceful and normal space for communication and getting information. Although censorship would be a limitation on the freedom of speech rights, and may become a tool for dictatorship, government should censor the internet to raise intelligent youth with moral values, to help citizens not to have psychological addiction and negative consequences, and to protect intellectual property.
