This may sound odd to some of you but until someone proves me wrong I'm stinking to what I said.


So who do you think is responsible?

I think it's one of the main reasons India hasn't progressed on the world stage.

I do see your point. But the racial antagonism was entirely a product of the political power games at the time. In the resulting civil war, yes religion was the dividing line between the two sides, but the violence was never in the name of Islam or Hinduism. I guess my point is the battles were not ...

The Kashmir conflict and the India / Pakistan conflicts are purely political - nothing to do with religion - and was brought about by the British when they were forced out of India. The resulting power vacuum naturally caused internal fighting - which ultimately lead to the creation of Pakistan wher...

Fair point about Africa, though it has been a popular subject in recent films (The Constant Gardner, Hotel Rwanda, Lord of War - all fantastic films btw) Not sure if Islamic fundamentalism was largely ignored in the past. In relative terms, yeah your right, it's centre stage these days. But thats wh...

exactly. society is always at odds with itself - and conflict is unfortuantely inevitable. to censor one particular viewpoint maybe in society's bests interest but its stills censorship. Personally I see nothing wrong with a little well exercised censorship. Afterall - filmakers are 'free' to make p...

touche!

but let me give an example...

where do you draw the line between inciting religious hatred and expressing religious views? Sometimes they are the same thing (especially in Islam)

Whoever thinks we live in a world where we have the freedom to say whatever we want is kidding themselves.

Freedom of speech is a fantasy.

Actually I think Michael Jackson could be described as having two landmark musical moments. First as part of the Jackson Five during the Motown movement and then when he released the Thriller album as a solo artist. In both cases I would say he was hugely influential. To all extents and purposes he'...

Going back to DavidM's remark that artists don't make two important landmarks. There are a couple of exceptions I can think of just off the top of my head. a) Norman Cook (from the House Martins) - a very popular group in their time, who totally changed genre & name to become Fatboy Slim. b) Damon A...

Seems to me you'd like Gnarls Barkley. It's a very new track, but has a motown flavour to it.

I recommend you look for it.
