But . . . There Really IS a Fire in the Theater!!!

Freedom of Speech (painting)
Freedom of Speech, by Norman Rockwell, Image via Wikipedia, The way it was meant to be.

I know my readers love stories and this one is a doozy.

Do read it and wake up.


Here you will find the amazing story of the true purpose of censorship

and the true purpose of freedom of expression

in a world gone awry.

Do read it.

And wake up.

    1. Thanks for going there, Sans! I really thought it worth repeating, and I know this guy really stuck his neck out to publicize it. Isn’t his English pretty good for a second language attempt!
      Thanks, again.

    1. Thanks for commenting, Kate!.
      I think the thing that gives me cold chills is the fact that they attemped to censor Giulas, first, when he was only telling the truth, but refused to even admit the possibility of the need for it in this horrendous show.

  1. Thank YOU!

    What a horrific tale!

    This is why we don’t watch TV.

    Thomas Jefferson said, ‘The price of Freedom is eternal vigilance.’

    It IS up to us to protect free speech AND to call out evil and right wrongs.

    Brave, brave man! Inspiring!

    Thank you for posting this; hard to read
    Harder to fathom…

    XO. Jen

    1. Oh, Jen, you are so welcome! And WE don’t watch T.V., either.
      But it is horrific, yes, and, yes, Giulas is brave.
      I keep thinking of the poor woman, who did not realize what was about to happen to her. Although drunkenness was probably her mistake, there is something about those shows that brings out the worst in us. It reminds me of the gladiators of Rome.
      Calling out evil does take bravery and knowledge of what is evil. Big task . . .
