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.

LIVE FREE OR DIE!


 
Comments:
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.
