Televised content should be made globally available and relevant creator restrictions relaxed.
Debate Rounds (3)
Content providers should reconsider their illogical restrictions, and enable TV networks to stream internationally, increasing competition for quality content, and exposing people to a much greater range of entertainment and informative content.
The opening phrase of your debate was "In a world where..." I love this phrase, and clearly you love it too. I love saying that in a world where there are Muslims, Buddhists, atheists, communists, capitalists, conservatives, liberals and many other varieties of cultures and political ideologies there is bound to be good reason to restrict what is shown from one country to the next.
The Danish cartoon is example of how, when certain media content isn't hidden from members of a certain nation, it wreaks havoc.
If we were to televise the burning of Qur'ans, certain people would cheer, good entertainment, certain people would cringe, and others would bomb the place that burnt them, begin burning bibles, Torahs and Hindu scriptures and wreak havoc in the world.
To Europeans, pornography is an inherent accepted part of adult culture, many people openly claim to watch it, and feel no guilt at all. Pornography is relative however. Europeans are globally recognised as the most liberal of the continents on sexually explicit matters (I challenge you to supply any evidence against this). So, when they are used to associating hardcore, severe pornography with adult content, seeing a woman in a tight bikini on a movie for kids is fine. In fact I doubt the children even pay attention to it. However, in a culture where women have to be scared to show more than hands and eyes, and in certain regions not even eyes, seeing a woman in a bikini, let alone more severe content in some movies, on a publicly broadcasted television channel would cause riots in the town, they might even burn down their local broadcasting company headquarters just out of anger (believe me, this is the Arab culture, if you think it goes against Allah, burn it, I'm not being racist, it's actual observation of how they deal with such scenarios). So, if we filter out certain things from other nations, it will avoid disruption and chaos.
