we have our rights and we have the freedom to express ourselves, right?
well yes, that seems like the right diirection for a modern society to head.
the formula is simple; censorship and denial of rights = dictatorship and tyranny.
so therefore, reduce censorship and grant rights and as if by magic, dictatorship and tryanny will decrease also.
so here in canada we have people expressing thier views and producing images that, a few short years ago, people would have found vulgar, crude and outright offensive.
but where is the decrease in invasive bureaucracy and restrictive government?
in fact, in hte last few decades while tv and movies have become increasingly violent and sexual, government has merrily expanded into more areas of our lives.
and honestly, i`m sick of the opinionated empty heads figuring that they have a right to inflict me with thier point of view, no matter how misguided it is...just because they heard oprah say it or because sean penn just made a movie about it, or whether the chocolate jesus just won a nobel peace prize.
personally i think the only right they have is to shut the fuck up.
and let`s face it, it would be a lot quieter too.
