Print More

For as long as shocking or provocative material has seeped into American culture there have been fights over whether it should be regulated or censored.

In the new book “The Decency Wars – The Campaign to Cleanse American Culture”, Burlington author Frederick Lane provides a modern history of the ongoing cultural debate, and argues that conservative politicians who want to legislate what’s seen and heard, and groups like Focus on the Family and the Parent’s Television Council, aren’t really concerned
about decency at all.

He spoke with Mitch Wertlieb about his book.
