55F and not quite saturated, if the station can be believed this morning…. [added- sure enough, it’s 55F outside]
Woke up thinking about the hypocrisy of the left, especially as it has to do with culture and art. Someone is offended by male genitalia on display, carved in marble, and they are a religious nutter, and should be mocked and driven from the public sphere. But if someone objects to a word used in a book 150 years ago, they are filled with totally understandable fury on behalf of the downtrodden and oppressed and we must ‘burn all the things!’ And burn anyone who would defend that as art.
Spielberg and Lucas want their movies to be considered art, but they will change and revise them to meet the ever-changing morality of the left (Greedo shoots first.)
2LiveCrew’s obscenity is protected artistic expression, but Mark Twain’s clever words are unacceptable and must be expurgated, lest someone be crushed by the oppressive weight of western culture.
Children are fully formed adults, with ideas worthy of serious consideration, but the long form of a word they use themselves is something they should never see. They can make their own decisions about particular types of surgery, but can’t be exposed to ideas that haven’t been sanitized.
Women can only be free sexually when they are willing to engage freely in the most demeaning acts WITH MEN.
The list goes on and on. The hypocrisy and double standard getting more and more egregious every day. Somewhere there is a breaking point, a point where the whole culture is repudiated, and we’re getting closer…
