Indonesia Tries to Become a Better Nation


Visitors: 303

As you may know, Indonesia is a country comprised by several islands, 17,508 to be exact. This geographically divided nation is united by the tight religious bonds that most of it's habitants share, this south east Asian country has around 222 million people and is better known by the number of beautiful beaches accessible to them.

In recent years Indonesia has been struggling to keep the nation safe and mentally healthy by fighting against material which enters the country and deprives youth of it's innocence and ultimately ending up in social corruption.

In March 2008, this country has given a step forward towards achieving its goal of keeping a mentally healthy society by passing a bill which criminalizes those who access internet sites which contain adult related material or digital content which is violent in nature. Many Indonesia's citizens support such measures, in fact two years ago Muslim groups forced the Playboy magazine to move out and re-establish its office in Bali.

"I think we all agree there's no way we can save this nation by spreading adult material, violence and ethnic hostility", said the Information Minister, Mohammad Nuh. These words clearly state that such bill in the best interest of the nation. In order to enforce such bill the country is working on special software which would sanction websites which have banned content, while this will not take down those sites world wide, the software will make them unavailable to anyone within Indonesia.

The software approach was taken due to the fact that accessing strong adult related content is very easy, even by children that according to one of the people in charge of drafting the bill, it is intended to protect them from such material. The bill passed with flying colors after getting majority support from all 10 factions in the chamber.

Such a ban will definitively have a positive impact in the country as people will dedicate themselves to socially productive activities improving Indonesia's quality of life. Tourists who travel to the country will also enjoy the beauty of the country by that things that it has to offer, from a cultural perspective to a perspective based on the demographics and local believes which is nicely complimented by the attractive natural resources this country counts with.
