It’s strange how over time the villains become the heroes and vice versa. We fought Jack Thompson and his ilk tooth and nail. We debated, research was done proving them wrong and in time they faded out and became irrelevant. I thought our freedom was secure, naive as I was.
Then the young people we thought would appreciate what was accomplished became the ones demanding censorship and control. They did so in the name of diversity, inclusion, representation, gender identities or whatever other hashtag caught their fancy.
So we had to fight again, this time against the people we thought were like us alongside the people we fought initially to preserve some of our hard won creative freedom.
Eventually the young ones that fight today will become victims of their own ignorance and the neglect they show for their rights.
What goes around always comes back around and bites you in the ass later if you are not careful…
