Censoring You: The Limits of What You See and Hear

Panelists TBA

Get the $@&! facts on censorship in the 21st century, the issues and the potential consequences of limits on free speech

If you Google "Tianamen Square" in China, no result' pop up. Stateside, the FCC doesn't want you to hear George Carlin saying certain words on the radio or see Janet Jackson's wardrobe malfunctions, whereas violent movies and video games have been generally tolerated. How does limiting access to information shape you? And, who's watching the watchers? Our uncensored panel will discuss who decides what we hear, if they can be trusted, and what we can do about it

INFORUM is a division of The Commonwealth Club by and for people in their 20s and 30s, with a mission to inspire debate around civic issues. We are a connector between ideas, individuals and communities.

Founded in 1903, the Commonwealth Club has played host to a diverse and distinctive array of speakers, from Teddy Roosevelt in 1924 to Erin Brockovich in 2001. Along the way, Martin Luther King, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and Bill Gates have all given landmark speeches at the Club.
