Dekka Raymaker's rebuilt installation - Adult Content Removed

“The fact is that censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates, in the end, the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion.”
– Henry Steel Commager

(quote found on the wall at Adult Content Removed)

I mentioned Dekka Raymaker's installation, Adult Content Removed, at Brooklyn Is Watching recently, but by the time I blogged about it, the work was already taken down.

Fortunately, Dekka was able to recreate at another location, so go visit it if you haven't yet had the chance.

You might ask yourself, "Why is censorship in Second Life is such a big deal? It's only SL."
I think it's really, really dangerous for people to accept ANY kind of censorship for ANY reason. Don't ever let anybody ever convince you that it's "for your own good."
