State of Helplessness

It might be hard for anyone who is reading this that is from America, but there really is not much the people of Rethymnon or Greece can do as far as their censorship in journalism goes. People are terrified of actual punishment and severe penalties for saying what they want to say or reporting on whatever they want to report on.

Unless there is an outright revolution, there really is not much the people of Greece can do. It doesn’t matter how many journalists report on what they choose to, the people up top can do what they want to silence them and prevent them from ever doing any sort of journalism work again.

Here in America

Quite the contrary to Greece, we here in America are so grateful and lucky to be protected under the second amendment which is of course the right to free speech. I don’t believe anyone should ever be silenced or be told what they can or can’t report on. This is what makes this country so great, the ability to say what we are feeling and having the right to have an open discussion. How can we solve so many issues that people have in regards to their point of views and attitudes if we immediately silence and punish them?
