Opeth~

Is "intolerant" becoming the right answer?

I don't get your question. Are you saying that if people don't buy D-Chicks music because of their politics that that makes those not buying intolerable?

no, my question is an answer in form of a question to your previous question to morefiah (response 49 to the thread)...

I see. I think Morefiah would have to answer that question of what we are becoming.

ok.

but, i would have thought if you only wanted morefiah to answer that question, an e-mail would have been a better way to obtain his answer; or am i mistaken? maybe it is best that i should learn and respect silence because words/thoughts might not be tolerated...

why cook someone else's food? oops got a metaphor wrong again... oops i did it again ... yikes!

Sorry about the mix-up. You can answer the question for Morefiah, no problem...but you answered it in a question directed at me, and I don't think we are becoming anything.



Do you think we, as a nation, are becoming intolerable?

Why did you remove your written opinion?

Opeth, actually, I think Sudhir said 'intolerant' not 'intolerable.'

Might shift the context of the discussion just a tad?

Noah -- point of order first -- could you please (pretty please) just use normal text and quit the centering -- it might be pretty for poetry -- but in essays it's just hard to read and doesn't help you communicate your ideas -- and -- your ideas are important!

If you need to emphasize -- use bold, caps, or quotes !

I think that your concerns (and Morphy's) about where society is going post 9/11 are valid.  You just haven't picked the best issue around to voice them.  

Remember -- in Germany -- it was Hitler who organized (make that mandated) the book burnings.  Once you buy a CD it is YOUR property -- it didn't belong to anyone but you and it's disposition was entirely up to you.

If you want to organize a rally against Clear Channell -- you are free to do that -- you're free to say what you want, buy what you want, and do what you want -- unless it's something that hurts someone else or infringes on their rights.

Your intentions are good and I'd encourage you to learn more about this great experiment in democracy.  DeToqueville might be a good place to start.

Hmmm, I think I might play my Dixie Chicks cds a little more often and a little louder too.

Looking at noah's list, I have a strange mixture of wanting to laugh hystericaly and cry. How the heck are "I feel the earth move" and "Dust in the wind" about war? And I like the dixie chicks. I listen to music if I like it, regardless of who sings it.

And I like a lot of the songs mentioned.

So are we hypocrits for saying that we offer free speech? Not completely. We still give a lot more freedom than many other nations. But I still don't think that radio stations have the right to ban songs that protest war. Half of those songs are songs that I really like. And they didn't get all of the anti war songs, so is that fair to the ones that made 'the list?' I agree with Noah about this topic. When we get to the point where people want to trash people's houses, and threaten people against war, it gets scary.
