I couldn't agree more, but I do think that is Utopian. People are too different, and what is ok for some people is egregious for others. Until nobody takes pleasure in (e.g.) torturing cats, parameters of acceptability and decency have to be imposed.

Re JFK: I can't understand why the videos have been removed. It's an historical fact. It isn't nice, but it happened, and it was an event that affected pretty much the majority of people on our planet in one way or another. I can understand why people wouldn't want to see it, but it's easy enough not to click on a link.
