To this day, I still do not understand why censorship even exists... Even though I have read quite a lot about it, It still does not make sense to me as I always find holes in the censorship reason stories.

I'm not worried. Censorship is a dying as it's no longer profitable. For example, if there was an Anime that was released censored in the U.S.- I would simply not buy it. Thanks to the internet, I can easily tell when something is censored. (Before the Internet one would never know.) Censorship is something I simply do not tolerate- on any level. As a consumer, I have the right to voice that with my wallet.
