I’m somewhat embarassed to admit that I ran across a link to this New York Times article on Slashdot. However, having admitted that I do, in fact, read Slashdot on a regular basis, let me move on to the actual content of the article. For those of you too lazy to read the article, or too paranoid to put up with the Times’ free registration, here’s a quick summary: Imax theaters have begun rejecting some films that make references to evolution, for fear that showing these films will cause too much controversy among Christian Conservatives.
While I’m no certainly no fan of the current administration and its policies, I’m generally wary of hand-waving claims of “Fascism!” by the Left. Such hyperbole strikes me mostly as a way to close off any further discussion of topics that, by and large, need a lot more discussion, not less. However, I found this article from The American Conservative very interesting (and frightening, obviously) for a number of reasons, not the least of which being that it’s from The American Conservative.
