I Remade a music video of the band NIN’s song ” Closer ” and tried to submit it for a competition at my school for an award, but it was denied because it had inappropriate language. So i had the choice to show the video with a edited version that would censor out the profane words of the video, or just not have it submitted and not get a chance at any reward. So i chose not to re-edit my finished music video because there was NO reason i saw to re-edit it. This is the perfect example of violating freedom of speech. It was going to be shown in a room full of High School students, no younger then 15. It is impossible that none of them haven’t heard any of the words that were considered ” inappropriate “. So I think this is a perfect example of how many people are not respecting this great Countries freedom of speech. A Video so simple can mean so much.
