    It is not possible to keep information from spreading -- a common mistake made by Stalinists and their intellectual ilk everywhere.

    Censorship is useless, stupid and self-defeating. The truth will always come out sooner or later, and whoever try to suppress it will seem so much more foolish in the end.

    So you don't believe in censoring anything? What about gay parades, child pornography, or sexual behavior in public? I believe there should be some limits in our communities.

    Censorship enforced by Governments is simply tyrannical.

    Community morals should be enough to determine what is exposed to the public and what is not, obviously, the general public would (should) not want their children exposed to homosexual pornography or other degenerate filth and thus the community itself would censor such stuff.

    Of course, there is a time and a place for all talk and debate, homosexuality and other issues can be discussed by adults in a private setting, whether they be for or against but it would not be accepted down the centre of the main road as the community would not stand for it.

    We do not need jackbooted Stormtroopers to maintain order and morality in society, if it does take Authoritarianism to keep us civil... What kind of people are we?!

    There should be no government-imposed censorship, but private institutions such as corporations and associations obviously have a right to decide what sort of opinions they publish and what sort of opinions they allow their employees to express publicly.
    Neither assimilation nor integration will solve the problems. The only thing that would work from my point of view would be separation. And this separation should be done on a global level, not on a communal level. The western countries here, the islamic countries there. And a very tall border between the two worlds please.

    Censorship is harmful by definition, but so are corrupt and degenerate leaders. Therefore I think it's important to be very strict on who we allow to be our leaders, however we should allow different opinions to prevail among the population.

    Censorship distorts the character and history of a nation and people. Funny that I just had this chat with IlluSionSxxx about the history of the Third Reich and the fact that we couldn't inform ourselves on the full picture because valuable articles and books have been banned. (in a democracy....)
    I believe that one should be allowed to inform him/herself of a situation, history without any limitations. One should be able to say, write or read whatever he wants.
    More strongly put: the character of Germanic peoples' is fundamentally based on free speech and the lack of censorship. The Germanic tribes and Vikings didn't even know the concept of censorship. Why should we ?

    There is only one excuse for the temporal implementation of censorship, and other violations of civil rights (such as wiretapping): war .... and they should be abolished on the very second that a peace treaty was signed.

    There are actually two excuses : war and revolution. Please note that Hitler Germany came right out of a revolution and unwillingly entered a war. Third Reich censorship must be looked at from that perspective.

    It's questionable whether the war was really unwanted. It was maybe not their goal to begin this war together with Stalin but they could have prevented it.

    I don't see any revolution in Nazi Germany. They got their power peacefully and steadily transformed the country into the nazi regime without much force.

    The censorship might be reasonable in the later war period but in the pre-war period there is no excuse for it.

    Ever heard of the non-aggression pact between Hitler and Stalin?

    Hitler signed that pact, but Stalin nevertheless kept sponsoring anti-German propaganda throughout Europe and he positioned the Red Army right along Western Sovjet borders from North to South. Hitler considered this a violation of the non-aggression pact and feared Stalin would invade Germany as soon as he was ready for it.

    Besides that, it were England and France who declared war on Germany as German soldiers set foot in Poland to solve an ongoing conflict that Poland refused to do anything about. Hitler made numerous peace proposals to the English to stop that war, but England continuously refused.

    A revolution doesn't always occur by mean of violence and bloodshed. 1933 was a year of revolution, but not of a violent revolution.

    The national-socialist revolution was a revolution of mind. National-socialist society is built on entirely different principles than a capitalist nation and for national-socialism to succeed it was important to uproot all capitalist institutions and replace them by national-socialist institutions and to change the people's way of thinking by means of education and the media. Anti-national-socialist provocateurs and propagandists would have made this process impossible had there been no censorship.
