City Island Senior Center At War?

Issue

There are problems at the City Island Senior Center, which operates Monday - Friday from 9 am - 3 pm at Grace Episcopal Church.

I don't know if it was the tension of 9/11, the choppy waters surrounding City Island, or perhaps that super-moon, which tends to bring out plenty of wacky actions, but as City Island Images drove past the City Island Senior Center, there was loud yelling and we dare say some members blood pressures were probably trending on the high end.

Media Ethics and Practices

Attraction
Images: 

Media reaches huge audiences via mass communication. The technologies through which this communication takes place vary. Media transmit information electronically, via such media as film, radio, recorded music, or television.

Since the rise of the Internet in the early nineteen hundreds, the world's networked population has grown from the low millions to the low billions. The Public Sphere evolves along and brings about political change, but needs to occur responsibly.

THE TEA WAR

Idea

This war does not occur in China, where the cultural revolution caused destruction. It is right in our United States.

The headlines surfaced following immigration reform: GOP Ready For 'Culture War'. The Grand Old Party, or Grand Old Party as it is called Republican, is ready for a culture war. Then came this: 'Furious' Readies Fight Against Tea Party GOP.

SPEAK UP AND SILENCE CENSORSHIP

The definition of censorship is the control of information and ideas circulated within a society. In the 20th Century, censorship was achieved through the examination of books, plays, films, television and radio programs, news reports, and other forms of communication for the purpose of altering or suppressing ideas found to be objectionable or offensive. The rationales for censorship have varied, with some censors targeting material considered indecent or obscene; heretical or blasphemous; or seditious or treasonous. Thus, ideas have been suppressed under the guise of protecting basic social institutions: Family, Church, and State.

To understand censorship, and the impulse to censor, it is necessary to strip away the shock epithet value that is attached to the word at first utterance. One must recognize that censorship and the ideology supporting it go back to ancient times, and that every society has had customs, taboos, or laws by which speech, dress, religious observance, and sexual expression were regulated.

In Athens, where democracy first emerged, censorship was known as a means of enforcing the orthodoxy. Indeed, Plato was the first recorded thinker to formulate a rationale for intellectual, religious, and artistic censorship. In his ideal state outlined in The Republic, official censors would prohibit mothers and nurses from relating tales deemed bad or evil. Plato also proposed that unorthodox notions about God or the hereafter be treated as crimes and that formal procedures be established to suppress heresy. Freedom of speech in Ancient Rome was reserved for those in positions of authority...etc.
