The parameters of a culture’s moral outlook have always been the ultimate basis for its laws and governance. Western nations have revelled in increasingly progressive moral philosophies, declaring wholeheartedly that our laws and ‘human rights are universal, indivisible and interdependent and interrelated’
. Yet no matter what level of liberalism and free thought we may come to, that which is regarded as beyond the acceptance of our sensibilities will always be met with opposition from the leaders of society. It is a question of moral development as well as the dichotomy between that which is pure obscenity and that which outrages morals despite being categorised as ‘art’. The freedom afforded to the citizens of a society is as much a representation of the society as a whole as the art which it creates.
