When I heard that Sony was cancelling ‘The Interview’ I was pissed off.
This was definitely a case in which the terrorists won, and I wanted to write about it.
But then Sony decided to cave a second time.
And 12 people were murdered in Paris, because other people disagreed with their ideas.
It got me thinking about responsibility and agency.
And I’ve come to the potentially controversial decision that if people want to risk their lives by going to a theatre that might be blown up, or by printing a cartoon that will enrage people, then that is their right, and we have no right to stop them.
And if journalists want to be able to call themselves that then they should probably start posting a few more pictures of Muhammad.
