You may have read my post about my local theatre choosing not to show Farenheit 9/11
because the manager says it would not make money for his theatre and it is of a "political nature."
Yet, he chose to show "The Passion of the Christ" for weeks. I didn't protest that because, while I'm not religious, I did not choose to go see it...my choice, my right. Others who chose to go see it, exercised their right also.
Yet, I will be driving a good distance in order to view a movie that should be my right to see at my local theatre that shows what is, in my opinion, religious mythology that was as inflammatory as anything in Michael Moore's movie.
What was the last movie "banned" at a regular cinema in America since the ratings guide of today were put into place? Could it have been Lolita
or perhaps Valley of the Dolls
Orwell would indeed be pleased or perhaps he'd be as shocked
as Jules Verne would be if he could return and see that so much of what he had actually imagined had become fact.
At least Jules Verne's fantasy to reality advanced the cause of freedom while Orwell's fantasy to reality is suppression of freedom. Very ironic and very, very unacceptable and so easy to keep from happening any more than it already is....just defeat Bush at the polls in November...simple...easy as pie IF enough Americans of voting age take the blinders off in time to save themselves and this country.
Bush and company have nothing to use
but fear itself...and they are so good at it, aren't they?
