Pat Boone, never one of my favorites by any stretch of the imagination, has achieved the rank of full blown doofus.
I don’t think censorship is a bad word, but it has become a bad word because everybody associates it with some kind of restriction on liberty. …
Censorship is healthy for any society, and that goes for arts, entertainment, anything.
There’s not much I can say to this. Actually, there is.
Hey, idiot!? If you suppress or delete something, it is a restriction on the liberty of the person who had said/done the thing in question.
If you think something’s bad — so bad that it shouldn’t be allowed to escape into the world — then do what you can to try and stop it. Protest, write your congressman, hold your breath until you turn blue, boycott the offender; whatever you think appropriate to do so long as it is legal. I’m almost certainly going to both disagree with you and fight against you (because I believe that the answer to “bad” speech is to raise good speech against it). But be honest with yourself (and with everyone else) as to what you are doing.
