In this article, McGoey starts by talking about the violence that have taken place in our schools in the recent years. He does not feel that the solution to America’s problem is as easy and blunt as banning all guns nor adding more regulation because it would easily increase the black market(2). To stop such horrific violence, it must be pulled out at the roots. Careful look at the past incidents shows that evidence of potential violence is found in different areas of the ones that are committing such acts; home, computer, notebook, and school lockers (7). Video games have become more real than ever before.
Sternheimer feels it is these other over looked factors that are truly the cause of “young killers” (210). These factors include personal traits, background and family. Sternheimer also blames politician’s claims for the rise of concern for video game violence (209). She briefly writes of law suits on video game producers and points out none have ever been won (210). Sternheimer wants us to question why there are “young killers” (210) arising from suburban families who are considered by most to be decent, well
Nein 1 United States vs. X-Citement Nate Nein Professor Frizzel April 16, 2013 Nein 2 The United States vs. x-citement was a case about child pornography. The laws about legal age limit were not being upheld by X-Cit. The law is the Protection of Cementhildren against Sexual Exploitation Act of 1977 prohibited the interstate transportation, shipping, receipt, distribution, or reproduction of visual materials containing children engaged in sexually explicit acts. The person in question was Rubin Gottesman who was the manager of x-citement at the time. He was accused of shipped the videos, containing pornographic acts by industry legend Traci Lords before she turned eighteen, to Hawaii.
Children were no longer at schools able to view pictures that were... "obscene, child pornography, harmful to minors..." (Federal Communications Commission). Schools were able to acquire a discount for more affordable products if they followed the criteria specified to standard through the E-rate program. Updates to the rules have been recently made in 2011. Transcending Advances in technology, it was inevitable to make restrictions on kids access certain online websites. For example, an adult would not give a 2 year old a sharp knife to cut an apple because the child does not know the dangers of handling a harmful tool.
It was only in the late 19th century that the mistreatment of kids was legally defined to provide for the basic human rights of children (Henry 13). The book was written in 1964 so abuse was not defined. Child abuse gained major attention in the usa in the 1960s (Tollefson). Child abuse gained attention in the 1960s so Lily could have told the cops and maybe got T.Ray reported. Some people also believe that stress is a cause for some cases of child abuse (Tollefson).
Megan Delawder Pornography Introduction to Ethics & Social Responsibility January 19th 2014 Instructor John Meeks Over the years there have been many arguments and debates over the morality of pornography. I believe it is important to identify the definition of pornography. This essay will define pornography as sexually explicit materials, such as pictures or videos, which downgrade women. Utilitarianism believes pornography would have to bring out more happiness than the absence of pornography for it to be moral. With that being said, pornography could be moral if it brought out happiness after viewing pornographic material.
Information Technology Acts Paper Laura Higgins BIS/220 April 22, 2014 Carol Eichling Information Technology Acts Paper Children’s Internet Protection Act, 2000 A federal law which was passed by Congress to control the offensive content over the Internet is called The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). The CIPA forces all the public libraries and schools to require filters on their computers to help stop children from getting access to open sites that are not appropriate for their age. This law was passed and signed in December of 2000 by President Bill Clinton. The reason for this law is to protect children from explicit, child pornography and many other dangers that are on the internet. Today our children face virtual predators and many other unsuitable things such as chat rooms, drugs, pictures of teens drinking, even false information about them written online before they are eighteen, and sexual messages that they do not need to see at their young age ("Children’s Internet Protection Act", 2003).
Many of these children are in terrible places in the world. Their country's laws do not say much about child soldiers so there isn't much that people in the country can do to help. In the article “Child Soldiers Should Be Prosecuted” by Debatewise.org, they state “The recruiters of child soldiers also use drugs and alcohol to make children more compliant and to enable them to commit acts they would not ordinarily commit.” (Debatewise.org). This evidence shows that these child soldiers do not have a choice when it comes to fighting. They are drugged up so that they listen to their leaders and don't fight back.
Across the vast digital world that is the Internet, children and adults can access any type of content they want with ease. We live in a world where young adolescents and children are venturing into the digital world with ambitions and hopes of seeking and finding illicit material, material that is shaping the minds of the male sex across the world. It is estimated that up to 90% of children between the ages of 12 and 18 have access to the Internet. Young people in this age bracket are not only being exposed to but they are choosing to expose themselves to digital pornography. Such exposure to illicit material such as porn has negative effects on the sexual development of children and young adults.
The internet can be a very disturbing medium. Some things on the internet are strictly for the adult audience and should not be viewed by children. The internet contains explicit information that children who access the internet, can get exposed to. In this case, censoring the internet is a capable option as it prevents this explicit information from reaching young minds. Censorship allows the government to cut certain elements that might be age- inappropriate or sensitive.
