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.

BUMP : This thread is a superb read and now very very relevant.

We now have big tech companies banding together to not just ban certain voices from the digital public square, but now books are even being banned from Amazon.
