Freedoms We Take For Granted

Let me start by saying that I love my country, but I’m concerned with the direction it’s headed in. So I’m writing this while I still can.

Today I logged onto my computer and downloaded my emails only to find that some of the people on the various lists I belong to have had their sites shut down. Apparently, this has something to do with decency laws recently inacted. This terrifies me.

It may be just my imagination, but it seems as of late we’re going from a country with many freedoms to just a few individuals’ view of what is right and wrong. Even the creator of NYPD Blue has been hit. He’s had to alter shows and scripts to conform to the ‘new’ kind of censors.

This is a trend that truly needs to be stopped. We do not need to go back to the burning times. It’s just sad that history has a way of repeating itself. Sigh… How can we preach freedom to other countries, while continuing to impair our own?
