About the Movie
Things are different than they used to be. We all know the feeling of dread when posting or talking about something controversial, and this dread has silenced us. It’s not censorship. The government isn’t doing it. We are. To ourselves. Across business, education, politics, and entertainment. Many comedians are even refusing to tour college campuses due to the sensibilities of students, and posting one wrong Tweet can get you fired from a job - or worse. Silenced explores these issues. We are going to talk to everyone, including people in tech, comedy, finance, sociology, psychiatry, clergy and of course the media. We are also going to show both sides of this issue. How far is too far, is their even is such thing?

Foundation in place
I enjoyed "Silenced" and feel like I could, personally, add up the pieces to form a statement. In today's world the 'silencers' don't or won't look at themselves introspectively unless there's a significant event or reason to change. I do respect the theme to 'leave it open' and let the pieces fall versus state a conclusion.
Bottom line feedback, I would have liked to see a single event followed thru with real world result. Example, did the coronation of Hillary during the Democrat primary erode the support base? Yes, but what a great story line to follow other viewpoints.
Good job Mike & Crew
Watching silence was a real eye opening experience. I never knew how bad things had gotten in terms of free speech. Great Job!
