This was an interesting read, very thought-provoking. Although I didn’t always agree with the author’s viewpoints, it really makes you consider how far people should be allowed to go when expressing themselves. It also includes a history of what people of certain times viewed as crude and lewd music, even the waltz was an abomination at one point!
