Order Description

guideline thoroughly

1. This paper asks you to write a comparative essay on a topic of Censorship and Internet regulation & Democratic movement in Singapore and Vietnam. These two countries are well known for their strict censorship laws (literature, film, music, new media etc.) and Internet regulation. In both countries, the authoritarian government seems to consider any form of negative expression against them as a threat to the wellbeing of the state and its political power. The structure of the political system and the strict censorship of the media sector hinder the participatory democracy. As s result, the landscape of civil society is rather restrictive, and without freedom in the public sphere, the civil society will be discouraged to promote more democratic and liberal political systems. However, there are also democratic efforts and movement against the censorship and media regulation both in Vietnam (ex. Online petition movement) and Singapore. You need to consider how the civil society and civilian react to government’s suppression of freedom of speech, and express their eager for democracy in the use of Internet and other forms of media (film, music, literature, etc.).

2. You NEED to read the three articles, and draw the examples from them and MUST INCLUDE(cite) in the essay. This is a part of requirement of this essay. These three articles I attached are very important and useful to understand how government suppress the public voice by strict censorship laws and Internet regulation & each in Vietnam and Singapore. That is, you will need four (4) additional and substantive outside sources for this paper in addition to three (3) articles I attached: total 7 sources. You can always use more, but never fewer.

3. This will be an interpretive essay in which you offer a persuasive, original argument that incorporates each of your chosen case-studies (namely, Singapore and Vietnam) and relates them in a coherent and compelling way. Avoid making the brutally obvious connection; that is, do not argue that censorship is “prevalent” in both countries. Please make it clear at the start of your essay what countries you are comparing (Singapore and Vietnam) and what issue you will be addressing (Censorship and Internet regulation). These two countries become your comparative examples to demonstrate your main idea (thesis) regarding how democratic efforts and movement react to Censorship and Internet regulation.

4. Please underline, italicize, or bold the thesis statement.

5. Please note: What you do NOT want to do is write a report (listing facts) or a policy paper (detailing what countries need to do in the future). If you write a paper documenting the prevalence of censorship in Vietnam, for instance, it is a report. If you write a paper that lists the things that you think what needs to do to end strict censorship in Vietnam, it is a policy paper. Instead, you will need to read through your sources, engage them, and write a paper that offers an interpretive argument about your topic. For this, it is useful to frame your topic as a question, and your argument becomes the answer to that question. Finding the right balance between your own ideas and those of your source materials is important. Above all else, your paper should speak clearly in your own voice and should be interesting and persuasive.
