Visions of Ecstasy (1989) was banned for blasphemy.
Search for video and images.



Censorship of "offensive" speech is rampant in the UK.
In Nov 2012, some guy called Linford House in Kent burns a poppy and posts it on the Internet.
So what. You know what I think of such people.
But he is then arrested by Kent police!
This is an outrage. Is burning the poppy illegal now? Is burning the Koran illegal? (Yes, it seems.) Is burning the Bible illegal?




Why TV is rubbish

The very fact that you can censor movies in the cinema, on video and on TV only shows how flawed these old media are. TV is simply far too easy to control. Around the world, every dictatorship and oppressor uses state control of TV to spread government lies and suppress the news. Across the unfree world, state TV is the voice of the oppressor, and the spreader of lies, just as Orwell imagined it would be. In the disturbing new world of the Internet, governments everywhere must be longing for the return of TV.

What a shower. Islamists and Islamic right-wing conservatives. And their western leftist enablers and fellow-travellers.

Who I block: I will debate almost anyone. I love ideas. I will not debate (and will block) people who do the following: (a) Make threats. (b) Accuse me of crimes. (c) Comment on my appearance. (d) Drag in stuff about me not related to the topic. (My professional career, my personal life.) (e) Complain to my employer. Yes, people do all these things.
