there is no middle ground it seems. it is always one extreme or another.
everything seems to be in the name of protecting the children. i have children and sometimes you need them to run a little wild, bump their heads, do stupid shit, because if you protect them from everything they wont learn anything.
this isn`t about children so much as it as about the mrs. brofloski`s of the world who get up on their high horses and believe they know what`s best of everyone else.
i wonder if the people who complain or start these protest organisations ever look back and think as it snowballs out of control, what have i done? three months after the superbowl the fcc is still using 3 seconds of nipple as an excuse to crackdown on indecency.
as we were unpacking books i jokingly told vic there may come a point where some of the books are going to have to be secreted, as i read/listen to the news everyday i wonder how far from the truth that is.
i wrote here before about being afraid of the backlash and i think this current fcc witch hunt is only the beginning of something more sinister. think about it, the popularity of the passion, abortion rights being eroded piece by piece, the rabid nature of the gay marriage debate, all within the space of three or four months, i think the pendulum has definitely started swinging in the opposite direction.
1984, backlash, moral majority
