Amnesty International’s mandate was “to work for the free up of and provision of advice to persons who in violation of the provisions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights are imprisoned, detained or differently physically limited as a result of their political, religious or other conscientiously held beliefs or by reason of their ethnic origin, sex, colour, or language, provided that they haven’t used or encouraged violence”. During the 1960s as a result of the war in Vietnam, the civil rights stream, the struggles in opposition t colonialism and apartheid, many folk refused to obey laws and claimed the correct to break them on the bottom they conscientiously believed them to be wrong. At the time, the words were considered highly inappropriate and mistaken for broadcast on the general public airwaves in the US, even if radio or tv. As such, they were avoided in scripted fabric, and bleep censored in the rare cases in which they were used; broadcast criteria differ in different parts of the world, then and now, though most of the words on Carlin’s customary list remain taboo on American broadcast television as of 2013. The list was not an official enumeration of forbidden words, but rather was compiled by Carlin.
Nonetheless, a radio broadcast that includes these words led to a U. S. Supreme Court choice that helped establish the level to which the federal govt could alter speech on broadcast television and radio in the United States.
