The history of censorship in America is a somewhat complicated story, that evolved over the decades. Up into the 1970's it was entirely obsessed with "decency" in particular. In cinema, "post-code" there was not to be a hint of what might imply a sexual relationship. About this time, is always when the shift towards the Culture of Fear was going into effect. So no promiscuity, but war bent fear mongering was alrighty then. I just played this documentary on the "Pre-Code" Era, "Thou Shall Not Sex: Sex, Sin and Censorship in Pre-Code Hollywood (2007)", but it isn't up in GooTube in English. This one here I just started, and seems to also be all about that same era, and talks about censorship beyond just Hollywood as well:

Why Be Good? Sexuality & Censorship in Early Cinema (2007)

Only 26 flags ATS? With but a handful of comments it couldn't possibly make the front page that way either.

Seriously, WTF.

I actually came to add some more content, but F it.

Still the most informative thread on ATS.

And you decided that "F it" isn't where it ends.

When it comes to research and information, I like it big and bold, like yours.

When it comes to emotional content, I like it to be expedited.

You have both in spades. Don't stop working, I'm learning with you.
