I have been thinking about this for some time (as sad as I am).. I have been thinking about how PC crazy society has become, and it seems to be getting worse.
Watching Top Gear on Tuesday night, it seemed to be a good show, car reviews with the general banter and comedic sketches thrown in for good measure (Not to everyones tastes I know). However, the sketch that had Jeremy, James and Richard performing a mock drive by shooting of the Stig for points, has caused some pockets of society to complain about it's unsuitablility (not for promoting gun crime as it could be deemed I might add) but because they were shooting at The Stig who was seem as a bit of a cult hero.
TV programmes, Literature, freedom of speech etc, all seems to be over analysed nowadays for any slightest thing that may appear sexist, racist, provocative or even inciteful, to the point where we are continually being told what seems to be appropriate behaviour from what is not.
Does it seem to some of you that things are really beginning to snowball out of control?.. Civil liberties seem to be a thing of the past.
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying people should be able to say and do whatever the hell they like with being held accountable for over stepping the mark etc, but where does this all end?
What do you think?
