The Next Rotation - The Universe of Fenris Fox

And For The Republic, For Which It Stands...

When I saw that a 150+ year old opera by Mozart had been cancelled due to contemporary - frankly, damn near newborn - concerns about upsetting some subset of the population, I got pissed off. I'm still pissed off.

I have only one thing to say to those against freedom of speech, that support censorship, and that go for this "political correctness" bullshit (which is just a eupheism for censorship, IMO):

If you want me to stop speaking my mind, you will have to kill me.


Yes, the opera called off because the director inserted material offensive to Christians, Moslems and Communists (if I remember right) that Mozart did NOT write into it.

It's not Mozart's opera that was canceled, but some director's perversion of it.
