Pondering the Choices of Personal Freedom

February 14, 1992

Tim Rutten's essay on "The Moral Dilemma of Censorship" concludes by saying, "Like the confused young mother in the video store, we are all condemned to freedom." But freedom is only real when we truly have a choice.

Like that young immigrant mother, I also ponder the choices in the video store and at the local multiplex. Where are the movies I want to see? Where's the romance? The clever dialogue? The intrigue, rather than blood and gore?

What kind of freedom is it when the choice is either "Men With Large Revolvers Who Drive Like Crazy People" or "Neurotic Women With Large Breasts"?
