Thread Name: BS: Censorship on Mudcat
Subject: RE: BS: Censorship on Mudcat
Roger, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume that the song that you wrote in 1999 and that you are pointing us to in 2005 was and is posted in a spirit of reconciliation with a theme of   unity inspite of diversity.

A portion of your song is

"We have different views
That's the way it'll always be
It don't matter who's right or wrong
We'll just agree to disagree"


My Virgoian detail oriented nature mixed with my Sagittarius see the larger picture nature causes me to ask:
Aren't there times that it does matter who is right and who is wrong? And how is 'right' and 'wrong' determined? Who determines right and wrong? Isn't it usually those in power?

On this discussion forum, with regard to censorship-the topic of this thread-doesn't Max have the power and hasn't he delegated that power to Joe and "Joeclones?"

And with regard to your refrain:

"I look forward to that day
And I hope it won't be long
When we all get to sing the same song"


Again, the words sound well meaning, and I'd love to give you the benefit of the doubt that they are meant well...

Yet I have to ask, given the different views that you mentioned in your verse that I cited above, who determines the song that we all get to sing? Sounds to me like that might start a whole 'nuther arguement-excuse me-discussion.
