Filtering the internet to protect vulgar, pornographic, or inappropriate websites may be good, but when it is a government what is their motivation  Around the world the internet is filtered in varying degrees. Recently Russia began to block almost two hundred websites. These include Russian websites that  are vulgar or give suicide techniques. Is this ethical or is this leaving the weightier matters undone? The cost of filtering the internet in Russia alone is estimated to cost ten billion dollars. What about the poor in Russia?

  1. I personally feel that content filtering is primarily a personal and family responsibility. However, governments should keep websites from preforming illegal acts, and as such do have the right to filter sties that beak the law and endanger others.
