“Most remarkably…challenges to our First Amendment rights to free speech have come not from government but from activist groups largely on the political Left.”


This morning a good friend sent me this article by Daniel Grant on museums and self-censorship.

In the past year, artworks—especially those in art museums—have been the catalyst for a number of high-profile disputes over what may be freely expressed and by whom. Most remarkably, unlike what we assume to be traditional censorship, the challenges to our First Amendment rights to free speech have come not from government but from activist groups largely on the political Left. Most disheartening is how often these groups prevail.

It seems I’m not the only crazy.
