Morality Police - Lenny Bruce and The Filthy Fifteen

In this episode we will hear about how the liberal use of obscenity laws and the actions of religious backed social groups impacted the world of art at several points in recent history. We will hear how artists were singled out, attacked and in some cases dragged through the courts for decades all in an attempt to silence their voice and remove their art from public viewing. Under the guise of morality, we have seen time and time again that those in power have abused the laws in order to protect some outdated, unrealistic and ultimately fraudulent social experiment   Patreon - Please support the show!!  www.patreon.com/yourartsucks
