A technique designed to blind the world's children from what they will someday learn.
-Commonly used in Japanese animation(anime) which may contain brief nudity or drug use, this is why people in America do not watch Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, or Dragon Ball GT, because they are so censored that they seem so extremely stupid that it's not even good anymore. Thank god anime like Akira and Neon Genesis Evangelion were never censored.
-Also used in music as a sticker that may read, "Parental Advisory Explicit Content." that is used to try to prevent children from listening to music that is deemed "offensive" and that may even help expand their horizons as individualists. It is sometimes true that some material in music leads to violence, but those who do take violent lyrics seriosuly are just idiots.
Cencorship is commonly used in China, as well as the United States and throughout Europe.

1. What lazy parents use as an excuse to not want to teach their children what is and isn't acceptable to view. Proven to be useless because all it does is make the children even more curious as to why it is censored.

2. What the government uses to keep the dumb masses from finding out the truth about its corruption and incompetence.

An easy substitute for lazy parents that shouldn't have had children in the first place if they cant teach them the difference between right and wrong.
Idiot parent groups - "We will not let our kids be subjected to this sort of content because they will start going out and killing people!"

Enlightened Person - "Maybe if you weren't negligible parents and taught your children the difference between right and wrong then we wouldn't have the problems that we do in society"

Preventing details of songs, movies, or any other form of entertainment that parents think is obsene. This ruins many movies/television shows because many things like gore, sex, violence, swears, gay relationships, drug useage, and other things are completely left out. Also, censorship is responsible for starting many useless parent groups that try to prevent anyone under the age of 18 from listening to music with profanity, watching movies, or watching TV. In other words, censorship needs to stop NOW!
Two of the parent groups that are for censorship, the PMRC (which is anti-music) and The White Dot (which is anti-television) have to be the most pointless, worthless organizations ever, right up there with Right-to-lifers and PETA.
