Internet censorship - Who Owns The Host

Lets start with defining "Internet Censorship."

Internet censorship is the control or suppression of the publishing of, or access to information on the Internet. It may be carried out by governments or by private organizations at the behest of government, regulators, or on their own initiative. Individuals and organizations may engage in self-censorship for moral, religious, or business reasons, to conform to societal norms, due to intimidation, or out of fear of legal or other consequences.

Opinions on the topic of Internet censorship vary, with arguments being made both for and against censorship. Moreover, the extent of Internet censorship varies on a country-to-country basis. While some countries have little Internet censorship, other countries go as far as to limit the access of information such as news and suppress discussion among citizens. Internet censorship also occurs in response to or in anticipation of events such as elections, protests, and riots. An example is the increased censorship due to the events of the Arab Spring. Online hacktivist group Anonymous has expressed its opposition to internet censorship through protests and online hacking in several countries.

Censorship is the suppression of speech or other public communication which may be considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient as determined by a government, media outlet, or other controlling body. It can be done by governments and private organizations or by individuals who engage in self-censorship. It occurs in a variety of different contexts including speech, books, music, films and other arts, the press, radio, television, and the Internet for a variety of reasons including national security, to control obscenity, child pornography, and hate speech, to protect children, to promote or restrict political or religious views, to prevent slander and libel, and to protect intellectual property. It may or may not be legal. Many countries provide strong protections against censorship by law, but none of these protections are absolute and it is frequently necessary to balance conflicting rights in order to determine what can and cannot be censored. But "who owns the Host Site?" What is their Political affiliation? What is their economics driven by, religious, political, or extremism? Who actually, determines what is "considered objectionable, harmful, sensitive, or inconvenient speech on the "Host" Site?"

Someone owns You Tube, FOX News, MSNBC, Facebook, MySpace, and a host of other disasters of free speech effectively getting out.What is their Political, Religious, and Social Viewpoint these are the questions that should be asked. I've seen it much too often at You Tube [and realize I like You Tube and have been their for years] my Friends having to leave then come back then leave then come back in many new forms or boldly come back as themselves. Again I see it and it's disturbing to say the least.

From Film competitions on, there is a blockage for those who hold integrity over success. Games played over the deeper message getting out. Associations held over the Artist deliverance. We don't have time for this kind of nonsense, the World needs changes. The Rock, Paper, Scissors game must end. Substance must prevail rather it is "liked" or not. Open discussions must be able to come through for it can promote healthy discussions that afford change, real change not BS change. Let's get out of the 18th Century mode of thinking with outdated laws, racial hatred, constricting view points, and bather that makes ya feel good... but arrives at nothing truly happening. Is Snordelhans rough on the Jews? Maybe he is, but maybe its time to question all forms of Religion that holds any of us down. "Independent" means something. "Indie" for short means something. It is a catalyst for Independent Thinking! Can you think for yourself? Can you see something is wrong with our World, and we all need to open our minds to changes that need to occur, if we are to survive as a world. So, Snordelhans can be found at Vimeo those 43 lost Videos are now their. My question now is for how long?


  1. As with most things in this world...the minority with power dictate how the majority should live, how we should think and what is to be permitted and what's not.
    Anyone who does not recognise the extent of control by the minority needs to open their eyes...its all around for all to see.

    1. I agree Jodie, it's sickening how the US and the World has deteriorated into a maddening chaos of judgement of others.... no compassion, no understanding, no real expression is going on, just a bunch of blathering pompous arrogance from "those" who think its ok to judge, condemn, and even kill the so called "immoral." "They" never seem to think "they" are in the wrong, "they" seem to think "they" are always right. Sad state of affairs I say, not only for this country, but for the worlds needs to be met as a whole, this kind of 16th century thinking needs to be stopped if we as a world is going to survive.

  2. There is no such thing as freedom of speech,not unless what is being said conforms to the ideals of power

  3. Just got information from a good Friend at Facebook that may help you understand "the Jews" more.... "Hi Shade, in regard your post concerning Jews. There are Sepharic (sp?) and Ashanazi (sp?). The Askanazi Jews aren't actually Jews but a race of peoples from Russia who took on the Jewish religion in the way back 1000 A.D. They were looking for a religion to adopt and didn't want to adopt Catholic ways so they adopted Judaism. The other sect has been in Israel and old Babylon for centuries. They are true Jews. Ashkanazi are not true Jews. Hope this made sense."

    She adds:
    "Oh, one more thing Mein Kampf was adopted by Hilter from Martin Luther who proposed that all Jews be exterminated. Luther wrote a paper on this and Hitler practically word for word copied it. The Askanazi Jews are the ones who operate the world banking etc...think you know what I mean...although, I am not anti-Semitic."
