Censorship and the Internet's contribution to it

Censorship: A compound word, from "reason" and "judge". It is the deliberate exercise of control over any manifestation of expression. It is usually exercised by state bodies, that is, the state itself. The most important reason for this is none other than the exercise of control and guidance of the masses, usually in what the state considers right!

Censorship

A very short flashback ..

censorship
Their names are "Mizaru", "monkey that does not see", "Kikazaru", "monkey that does not hear evil" and "Iwazaru", "monkey that does not speak of any evil."

In the above απεικονίζονται οι τρεις σοφοί πίθηκοι, είναι μια εικόνα παρμένη από το παρεκκλήσι του Nikko στην Ιαπωνία, του τελευταίου Σογκούν. Η ερμηνεία της και οι opinions του τι εννοεί, ποικίλουν.

My personal opinion is, if one thinks about how disciplined the people were and are the Japanese, the conditions that prevailed in 1617, the year that this particular chapel was built, that is, this particular image could well depict in a sense, the voluntary ignorance! This is not necessarily a bad thing. One of his meanings I did not see anything, I do not say anything, I did not hear anything is this, "look at your work and not the injustices that are done next to you?" evil, do not you hear evil? ”. And in general, look at your work, why do I hold a katana? Or (second version) regardless of the hardships that prevail, you do not comment, do not see, do not hear and move on?

Being in a chapel means a lot! Everyone can draw their own conclusions. The way the church has manipulated and continues to manipulate through fear and reward is known!

The principle of electronic censorship.

The pinnacle of censorship, and to put it better, censorship became an art, after the end of World War II. In 1947 began the well-known to all of us "Cold War", A competitive geopolitical game between the then Soviet Union and the USA. It was a spy game. Everyone was watching everyone. Spying on one word could mean dozens of things and set dozens of goals, or reveal political tendencies and sabotage to the detriment of a particular regime. A very good description of the situation that prevailed in the then German Democratic Republic, in East Berlin, is depicted through the film "The lives of others". It has to do with a writer and how the then regime treats him.

From 1947, which is considered by many to be the beginning of the Cold War until the dissolution of the USSR, the 1991 and the fall of the Berlin Wall, many events have taken place today. The most important thing can not be anything other than the division of Korea into North and South 1953. I will mention this because we will refer to the current regime of North Korea below.

Undoubtedly during this period, 1947 - 1991 a positive, if I may say so, expression was the development of technology. Of course, the use that was made was not only positive, since the goal was the common people (as always).

 

Today..

B.Corea.

Perhaps the most extreme and comical case at the same time (if you live on the outside!). The situation inside is partially known by people who manage to escape. The regime controls everything, from what the residents will watch on their televisions to what time they will wake up!

censorship

 

The current leader is the well-known Kim Jong Un! He was re-elected MP in the elections held on March 9, 2014, with 100% of the votes! Not to mention the situation since our topic is internet influences, the North Koreans do not have access to the internet! Instead they provide the world with an intranet, called Kwangmyong, through which anyone can visit pages praising the Kim family, maintain email, access the country's news and an online library, also government-controlled. Only government authorities have access to the global network.

You can also see here similar reports.

China.

Η censorship in the People's Republic of China expressed through the suppression and restriction of the formulation and transmission of specific information in the country. Most censorship is carried out at the behest of the Chinese Communist Party. The autonomous regions of Hong Kong and Macau have their own legal system, while the Republic of China (Taiwan) is not controlled by the PRC government, so censorship tactics there differ.

The censored content is usually related to pornography, protest at Xenix Tienen Men's Square, Falun Gong Teaching, Tibetan Independence Movement, Taiwan Independence, Police Violence, Anarchism, Democracy, Specific Information Sources, specific religious content and plenty of websites.

Censored media basically includes everything that can reach the broad mass of the population including television, print media, radio, cinema, SMS, video games and the internet.

The organization Reporter Without Borders ranks the situation of the Chinese press in the category of "Very Serious" in terms of its freedom, while the International Institute Freedom House describes the press as "not free", adding that state control over China's media is achieved through a complex combination of content control, legal bans on journalists, and financial incentives for self-censorship.

In the image below we can see the flow chart of how someone is censored in China.

German journalist Mathie Siclamb, a member of the Reporters Without Borders, said in an interview with Docese Velle that China is at the top of the list, investing enormous amounts of money each year in online policing.

"China is forbidden to access a number of websites, and many search engines only display strictly selected results. Some areas have limited access to the Internet, while others are completely forbidden. "
The degree of state intervention, control and censorship is extremely high. Even in cases where electronic police do not interfere in a blatant way, it simply seeks to reduce the speed of transmission of information via video or photographs, especially in the case of mass demonstrations.

Ethiopia.

Σύμφωνα με τον ΟΗΕ, πάνω από 30 δημοσιογράφοι έφυγαν από την Αιθιοπία το 2014. Έξι ανεξάρτητες εκδόσεις του ιστολογίου Zone9, στο οποίο δεν επιτρέπεται η πρόσβαση στην Αιθιοπία έκλεισαν και υπάρχουν τουλάχιστον 19 δημοσιογράφοι και στη φυλακή για την άσκηση του δικαιώματός τους, την ελευθερία του λόγου και το δικαίωμα στην έκφραση.

Eritrea.

Όλες οι κινητές επικοινωνίες πρέπει να περάσουν από την EriTel, τον μοναδικό πάροχο κινητής που ελέγχεται από το κράτος. Όλοι οι πάροχοι υπηρεσιών διαδικτύου πρέπει να χρησιμοποιούν την κυβερνητική ελεγχόμενη πύλη. Η πρόσβαση στο είναι εξαιρετικά περιορισμένη και είναι διαθέσιμη μόνο μέσα από αργές συνδέσεις dial-up. Λιγότερο από το 1% του πληθυσμού έχει πρόσβαση σε κάποια σύνδεση, σύμφωνα με την Διεθνή Ένωση Τηλεπικοινωνιών του ΟΗΕ.

Saudi Arabia.

censorship

 

The Saudi government has gradually stepped up legal action following the Arab Spring crackdown. According to the Press Law of 2011, the publication of any material that is considered to be against the sharia, conflicts with state interests, promotes foreign interests, harms public order or national security, or engages in criminal activity.

Η Γενική Επιτροπή για τις υπηρεσίες οπτικοακουστικών μέσων ανακοίνωσε τον Απρίλιο του 2014, ότι θα παρακολουθεί απευθείας το περιεχόμενο του YouTube για να εξασφαλιστεί ότι τηρούν τις οδηγίες της κυβέρνησης. Το YouTube χρησιμοποιείται από πολλούς Σαουδάραβες για την αντιμετώπιση αμφιλεγόμενων ζητήματα, όπως οι γυναίκες και η οδήγηση και να τεκμηριώσει τα γεγονότα που δεν καλύπτονται από τα μέσα μαζικής ενημέρωσης, όπως το μαχαίρωμα ενός Καναδού σε ένα εμπορικό κέντρο της πόλης Νταχράν το Νοέμβριο του 2014. Η Σαουδική Αραβία χρησιμοποιεί επίσης την επιρροή της στο συμβούλιο συνεργασίας του Κόλπου για να περάσει περιορισμούς που εμποδίζουν τα μέσα ενημέρωσης στα κράτη μέλη να επικρίνουν την ηγεσία των άλλων κρατών μελών.

 

Azerbaijan, Vietnam.

Αρκούνται στην παρακολούθηση blogger οι οποίοι θίγουν ευαίσθητα , ή αναδημοσιεύουν ξένα δημοσιεύματα σε πλατφόρμες κοινωνικής δικτύωσης που θίγουν ευαίσθητα εγχώρια θέματα.

Iran.

Οι Ιρανικές αρχές διατηρήσουν ένα από τα πιο σκληρά καθεστώτα λογοκρισία του διαδικτύου στον κόσμο με το κλείδωμα εκατομμυρίων ιστοσελίδων, συμπεριλαμβανομένων των ειδήσεων και ιστοσελίδων κοινωνικής δικτύωσης. Η κατάσταση για τον τύπο δεν έχει βελτιωθεί στο πλαίσιο Rouhani παρά τις ελπίδες των κρατών μελών του ΟΗΕ και των οργανώσεων των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων.

Turkey.

censorship

 

TIB (Turkish Telecommunications Authority) blocked access to Twitter on 20's 21 night in March 2014, commanded by Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who appeared determined to end the daily online transmission of corruption charges against his government. This decision has come into conflict with the opposition and law clubs of Turkey.

These are just a few examples from countries that heavily censor the internet. There are many more that censor works and printed documents such as newspapers and magazines, or media in general, such as television.

Image of Internet interaction.

 

In my opinion, however, the worst thing is to censor the internet because the information is essentially transferred to our pockets! Everyone can, by a mobile device, compose and form an opinion to an alpha audience.

Κλασικό παράδειγμα στην χώρα μας είναι η υπουργοποίηση του Δημήτρη Καμμένου και η αποϋπουργοποίησή του λίγες ώρες μετά, τον Σεπτέμβριο του 2015, έπειτα από τον πανικό που επικράτησε στα μέσα κοινωνικής δικτύωσης και ειδικά στο twitter λόγω κάποιων άστοχων “τιτιβισμάτων” του βουλευτή, πριν ακόμα την συγκυβέρνηση των Ανελ με τον Συριζα. Ο Καμμένος απενεργοποίησε τον λογαριασμό του μόλις του ανακοινώθηκε ότι θα υπουργοποιηθεί και δεν άργησαν να κυκλοφορούν τα παρακάτω (κάποιος έπρεπε να του πει πως, ότι γράφεις, μένει στον ιστό για πάντα!). Μέχρι το απόγευμα είχε γίνει πρώτο #hashtag αναφοράς με αποτέλεσμα να μεσολαβήσει η ΕΥΠ, ο Καμμένος να υποπέσει σε αντικρουόμενες δηλώσεις και τελικά να παραιτηθεί.

In honor of our country and respect for man, no censorship has been found on the internet! Equally anyone who maintains a twitter account will have the pleasure of exchanging opinions with anyone! From journalists to MPs! Of course the "block" goes cloud, but it has nothing to say !!
