    Default Charlie Chaplin show cancelled

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/125...priate-conduct

    the hell?

    I'm all for being sensitive and aiming for a more caring, respectful society but

    It was the 1800's. Can't we respect the work while also saying that his behaviour was not on?

    " some club members raised concerns .........................Chaplin was married four times, according to his family's website, with two of his wives aged 16 at the time of marriage, and another who was 18 when he was 53."

    We allow this extremist , virtue signaling nonsense rather than calling it out .

    Better cancel everything thing. Everyone has done something bad or stupid at some time

    Start with the Bible. plenty of nasty stuff in that, so cancel xmas & Easter . Protest outside churches .
    Cancel everything royal because of things Prince Phillip said .

    The nazi's used radio for propaganda , so better shut that down as well.
    Burn all books, as hitler had a very nasty little book that was very popular .

    Or Lady Chatterley's Lover (D H Lawrence) or Errol Flynns My Wicked, Wicked Ways.

    And poor old Charlie cops the blame.

    Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.
