GUEST,Captain Swing Real story of Vin Garbutt & Cambridge (149* d) RE: Real story of Vin Garbutt & Cambridge 30 Jul 07


You are certainly allowed to feel moral repugnance at Vin's point of view on this issue.

I can't agree with you on the bandwagon issue. If I was going to jump on a bandwagon I'd find one that increased my popularity, not lessened it. I shouldn't think this has done Vin any favours professionally.

There are, and have been, extreme elements in many areas of political and social argument: Apartheid, Northern Ireland, The Middle East, Animal Welfare, Welsh Nationalism. Yes, there are some mad, dangerous bastards around. These people poison the debate and turn it into a war by using violence and intimidation to try to achieve their aims. But the existence of these nut cases who is not a reason to prevent someone from using their art to make a peaceful point on the issue.

If Vin were singing songs in protest at animal experimentation, would you be linking him with the idiots who attack research centres and threaten the families of the workers?

"only spiritual insight confers that sort of moral certainty"

You sound pretty certain of the morality of this issue - do you have some spiritual insight?
