“Ah goat the idea frae a scuil web site whaur they completely masked all the wean’s swatches tae forbid inappropriate enjosement o the photies. So ah thoucht ah’d dae the same tae the pentins tae protect the airtwork ah own frae the wrang een.”
“I got the idea from a school web site where they completely masked all the children’s faces to forbid inappropriate enjoyment of the photographs. So I thought I should do the same to the paintings to protect the artworks I own from the wrong eyes.”
It’s mad that people are starting to destroy or diminish the things that they and a healthy society love and value just to thwart the possibility (not the certainty just the possibility) that a few bad people might get some evil benefit out of these things.
I think it’s a perverse sort of self centredness. It amounts to extreme selfishness, fear and lack of any effort at gathering facts and thinking it through.
