So if we take it to the extreme and there was an entire archive of Nazi propaganda available on a major streaming platform what would we do ?
Firstly most of us would avoid the service, I wouldn't pay for a service that was making money out of that kind of thing. However what if it was the only service and all the good content was exclusively available on that service ?
Then I would make a noise I suppose. We would be putting pressure on that service to remove those things from their catalogue or putting pressure on the distributors to move their content to another service.
So these movies they are removing are not Nazi propaganda but there are some serious issues with them. For example with out the context for which they are created some of these movies portray a reality that never existed.
This is why you have classifications like "Fantasy" and "Sci-Fi" so someone watching those movies will understand that none of things depicted in the move are real. Perhaps we just need the same kind of things for these old movies. They are still part of our history but need some context and commentary.
That is why I'm not getting upset with them putting up warnings for some of the older movies. Gone with the wind is fine as a story but makes it look like slavery was fine and it was ok to hit woman. Before I let my kids watch those things I'll have a chat with them about all the things they might see and what they mean.
Unfortunately adults can make the wrong choices due not being exposed to a sufficient amount of "sensitivity training"
I couldn't give a flying fk about a thicker skin.
I was offended by it.
The N word is strewn across many films.
It's 'ok' because blacks say it to blacks.
If a white person says it it's crucifixion time.
No! If a movie offends someone, do not watch it. Its not 1984. I do not want censors to tell me what I should or not see anything!
Your comprehension skills fail you.You can't be offended about being rich and white. That's so weird. I'm white. I am educated. I have support from my family and friends. Where's the offensiveness?
And don't get upset because you can's say the n or the k-word. Why the **** would you want to say it? If you go around "k-'ing" everywhere it's not because you are a kwaito fan. It's because you are a racist and you hang out with other racists.
No. People should be given the option of choice. It is just a movie not reality. You should use your common sense, if something will upset you, DON'T WATCH IT
Democracy is supposed to be about freedom of choice which seems to have flown out of the window in the past 13 weeks are we all to be brainwashed like in a dictatorship or communist country because that’s what it’s beginning to feel like .We don’t have to watch something that we don’t agree with , we can choose well for now at least
