However, censorship also acts as the most important condition for the functioning of the state. Censorship has, furthermore, the property of adapting to a changing social reality, to the peculiarities of social being, and, due to this circumstance, a study of the existence and functioning of censorship in the societies at different stages of state development has both theoretical and practical significance.
