Talkback Thursday: A Free Internet: Can you handle it?

Over the years, there has been a significant push by the government to help make the nation more tech-savvy. However the internet is always a cause for debate. The web is at once a space for billions of voices to be heard, but at the same time this means that it is also a stage for a multitude of opposing opinions. And with this situation there are attempts by the government to shield our internet users from certain so-called disagreeable content. These attempts come in the form of internet censorship.


But should we or should we not allow the internet to be free?
Today on Talkback, we’re asking: Can we handle a completely free internet?
