it exists in our eyes, but in reality, it is more like an illusion of freedom in western countries. Either the government controls you in some forms of government, or Businesses control you in other forms of government, for example, a right wing democracy.

I agree that the U.S. has, as of late, become less than glamorous, being run by the (opinion warning) fools that so many idiots put in the White House. To a certain extent, the "right wing democracy" is as much the people's fault as it is the government's. Although, there is the whole electoral college business and... well... the system could use refining. However, to have TOTAL freedom of speech, you couldn't have a real government. You'd have an anarchy.

freedom os speech is a previledge (i forgot the spelling. nyahh!!!!) given by a nation to it's citezen, esp in a democratic country. before, the philippines was deprived by that by it's invader mother, the spain. so for us, we are very grateful for having that freedom. but of course, we should be responsible in using that freedom.
freedom of speech can survive as long as the citizens are responsible enough to use that.

We pretty much have a nice bit of freedom when walking around in the streets. The real question is in the media. If we have freedom of speech, why are some things allowed to be censored on TV? (other than the pr0n)

because, little did you know, there are lots of young audiences that could probably be watching violent scenes in the tv. that's why there's censorship.

We'll, by me saying "besides the pr0n," I meant things that aren't suitable for children. I think I remember some political views being censored on TV.

you guys are kinda leading off into freedom of the press lol
freedom does exist, but always to a certain extent, then it comes into contact with other freedoms, and comes into conflict of other's freedom of religion like the cartoons. THerefore freedom does exist but to a limited extent only. If you live in a communist country, you do have this right, but you are persuaded to not exercise this right

I live in the UK, so I don't know much about my so-called 'Homeland'. (Personally, Japan would've been better) But, yeah. Think about it! They took out a sign that was in Kanji for the Dub Naruto! That was pointless! But, I think I'm straying off of my own topic. I don't imitate what I see on TV, but compare my life to those of Naruto's and Edward Elric's. And follow their way of thinking, mixed with my twisted sense of humor. But, yeah. Kids are easily influenced by things like favourite characters. (Example: My lil sis acts like sailor Moon. I'm like Naruto and Ed Elric. Not exactly mixed together, tho'.)

well I'm from America so I think I should give my input on this, the fact of the matter is there is no real "free" speach per say, even here in America, there's censorship. and expesially right now, if you say the worng thing about the wrong person (I.E. Bush) you could end up being investigated by the FBI. I mean you can say whatever you want, but there's bound to be repecusions if say something offensive to someone else, but we do have it pretty good most of the time, and censorship just looses more and more control every year, so do I think free spech will survive? sorry to say, but it never really existed in the first place, every country has some level of censorship, it's unavoidable, but that being said, I think for the most part, at least here in the U.S.A. it'l stay about as good as is has been.
