Filed under: #FreeMyInternet, By Rachel Zeng, Media Development Authority, Singapore
Personally, I do not believe that any authority should be given that power to define and decide for us, information or opinions that are safe or harmful. In fact, should anyone have any problems with the article(s) they have come across, they should speak up against it or share their own perspectives. This is how free speech works. Only through the process of being exposed to different perspectives, a society progresses intellectually. Since we do not get that from our mainstream media, or through our education system, we should do our brains a huge favour by letting the opinions remain as diverse as they can online. With that, I maintain the stand that the whole licensing regime should be dropped.
