We look at a lot of the freedoms we think that we don't have or are being infringed upon, and never pause to consider that someone else has it much, much worse. I know you're upset. I'm upset, as well, that dA won't let you post everything because I love your art and I'm fond of your way of thinking. Still, I don't have to get up, wondering if the local regime will kill me for having ideas of my own. If I desired to, I could go to any church or religious group I wanted to without the fear of official persecution. Serving my country is not mandatory - though I have served it out of choice (which, by the way, is why I feel confident enough to post this - I've fought for human rights, overseas and at home.) Consider this: There has never been a point in American history (and most of the rest of the world's recorded history, for that matter) where there has been absolutely no censorship. Art, simply put, comes with it. Now, I'm sure that, by now, you may have accepted censorship as an inevitable part of your career, Adam - knowing what to show to whom is how you earn your living. I'm posting this for those who might not understand this. The freedom of speech in America is claused by the idea that, if that speech is harmful to a particular audience, your abusing your freedom. That is the writ of the law. Now... exactly ~whom~ decides what speech is harmful - that's politics. Get involved. Be aware. On a last note, with freedom also comes the freedom of the people that own dA to do whatever they want with it. If you disagree, perhaps you should stop paying dues and buy stock, or boycott dA, or even start your own company that does the same thing - only you'd be in control, not the censors. There is nothing offesive about my logic, so if I get censored for this, I'm gonna be a little mad.
