Moral Subsidy

In Culture on September 27, 2011 at 5:58 am

The topic for today, my children, is an oft-debated practice of your masters – CENSORSHIP.  The masters have been here longer than you, hence they automatically inherit the right to decide what best serves  as moral cognitive content.

Repeat after me, I AM FREE!

Case study #1 : Weak and powerless breasts

The visual representation of this Perfect Circle song features a woman trying to fill a hole inside her soul with whatever she can find in her environment.  In comparison to the vast amounts of oversexed garbage produced daily for the sake of  ‘artistic freedom’, this video leans more towards the frail psyche of humans than any carnal prerogative.

Yet, my children, the masters have decided you’re not allowed to witness the human female form in its entirety.

Again, repeat, I AM FREE.

Note: the unedited version is available on APC’s DVD – aMOTION

Case study #2 : Let go of my coccyx

Get Smart, starring Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway was broadcast on Indian television with generous portions missing. But the most alarming edit was the following line;

Agent 86: Sir, I believe you just shattered my coccyx.

Now, my biologically ignorant children, coccyx is  commonly known as your tailbone, the last bone in your spinal column. Your masters strongly felt that the utterance of this innocuous piece of human anatomy is apparently going to  corrupt your moral fibre.  Hence, all that was left on-screen after the cut was Agent 86 letting know the Marshal, who’d fallen on top of him;

Agent 86: Sir, I believe  you just shattered… 

  [his lips moved but no words, the masters are here to protect you]

Forever keep repeating,

I   AM FREE.
