Although we will continue our conversation about out-of-the-closet conservative David Mamet and his revelatory book, "The Secret Knowledge," we will spend a little time on a recent theatrical controversy. Specifically, we will tackle the question of whether a colege theatre production should make changes to a script if the local community complains about its content. I posed this question recently on Facebook and got a number of insightful and challenging comments from my listeners (and others). Join me today as we ponder a difficult issue (and David Mamet!).

Bible literacy and good news are rare commodities in our postmodern world. Thankfully, light continues to shine, even in darkness. Since 1937, an interdenominational nonprofit organization, Child Evangelism Fellowship, has reached over 15.6 million children worldwide with clear, age appropriate presentation of the Gospel (“Good News”) of Jesus Christ. CEF has supported 62,393 Good News Clubs while helping 609 national missionaries in 93 countries stay in children's ministry through the Sponsor-A-National program. Through CEF, 190 countries have received nearly 12 million pieces of literature. Remarkably changed lives testify to its value, and the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability attests to the ministry’s integrity. Nonetheless, CEF faces opposition, especially from atheists and humanists. Join Debra and her broad spectrum of guests as together they celebrate victories in the lives of children through after school clubs while, at the same time, exposing censorship by design in efforts to criminalize child evangelism.
Blogs, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets are a great place to express one’s ideas and thoughts, however…Do people go too far sometimes? Do they over share? Are people sometimes a bit too open about their private lives or disdain for others over the tubes of the internets? Should some people, maybe even you, exercise some self-censorship prior to throwing your thoughts out there for the world to see?
So many questions about self-censorship to answer but Jay, Matt, and the IWS Radio team will tackle and answer them all as they delve into the topic of whether, when, and why we may or may not put a ball gag on our mouths and/or typing fingers. Will hilarity ensue, or will it be censored as they yuk it up while taking your calls?
Truth is the ography of today and most truth is being censored by a power structure few admit exists. Those who dare to discuss this power structure, the matrix and the lies to which we are being subjected are often vilified.
From the reign of Nimod to the Fabian Socialists of today, the power elite have been and continue to rule generations of people unaware that there are rulers behind the curtain - the powers of darkness. Instead, most people unwittingly accept that events taking place around them are merely random rather than orchestrated. We are being led to an event - or series of events - that will unveil these truths and create a mass awakening. It will also be accompanied by stronger oppression as the elite struggle to maintain their foothold on the censorship of the truth.
Paul McGuire joins us for this broadcast.
Nutmeg discusses about how censorship stiffles our freedom-of-speech. Nutmeg also touches on the celebrity deaths in the last week of Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, and Michael Jackson. The Nutmeg continues to rant about censorship.

American Vernacular is BANNED for 30 days once again from Facebook.
This recent ban highlights how social media platforms have the ability to restrict free enterprise, deflate the entrepreneurial spirit, suppress free speech and expression with no ability to appeal the decision except in "some" cases. What is the criteria for this form of net neutrality aka preferential treatment? And should a publicly traded, American-based company be allowed to use its discretion to abridge the speech of its users? When does a company have the right to restrict speech? Our crusade against the form of "cyberbulling" to silence dissent is a cause we need to be addressing and what we, the people, must do about it while we still can. Join the movement and let your voice be heard in support of freedom of speech and expression for all people.

My guest is Ariel Gore of HIP MAMA MAGAZINE. This months cover went viral before the issue hit news stands. But that's just it. The issue didn't hit news stands because of the cover. Which depicts a woman nursing with out a top/blouse/shirt her child (who happens to be 4). Vendors refused to sell the magazine.
Join us live as we discuss Americas double standard when it comes to breasts, censorship and breastfeeding.
The advancement of technology has given us all a way to express ourselves. We have social media,cell phones,laptops,tablets etc. We can send a message to any part of the world in a manner of seconds. We are supposed to have freedom of speech in this nation. That freedom is attacked daily and people get upset when you want to defend it. It's sad that people are looking people who aren't afriad to tell the truth. But those who speak truth are attacked with censorship. They are told it's not politically correct to say certain things. We all need to defend our right to free speech because we are on the verge of loosing it. Censorship is even starting to be pushed more than ever on social media websites. We want to discuss how and why this has happened in our country.

Philosopher Dr. Diana Hsieh interviewed Professor Robert Garmong about "Censorship in China" in this episode of Philosophy in Action Radio.
How does censorship work in China? What can ordinary people access or not? What is the Chinese government most concerned to conceal? What are the consequences of speaking out? What do ordinary people think of the censorship? Robert Garmong, an American living and working in China, will answer these questions and more.
Robert Garmong is Lecturer of Business at the Surrey International Institute of Dongbei University of Finance and Economics in Dalian, China. He studied economics and political science at the University of Chicago, and has a Ph.D. in philosophy from the University of Texas (Austin). His blog is "Professor in Dalian."
