Cowed conformism … the new puritanism … things not just confined to University Campuses. They’re the reason why Facebook & Twitter for the most part have become largely consumed with trite, inconsequential and – most important of all – inoffensive pictures of people’s pets, children & food. Oh, and not forgetting the voyeuristic clips of amusing/shocking incidents captured on the ubiquitous video cameras.
God help me if I’m ever cowed into silence or coerced into speaking lies. Here’s a cute kitten saying it’s prayers.
