# Against Political Correctness

In an interview with Joe Rogan, Quentin Tarantino said

The '80s and the '50s were the worst times for movies ever because it was this politically correct time. In the '50s, it was different because it was just society. In the '80s, self-censorship was going on […] It was the rise of political correctness after the '70s, where everything was ‘just go as far as you can’, then all of a sudden everything got watered down […] So I remember I was sitting in Video Archives and I remember saying, ‘I want to do s*** like that when I’m making movies,’ and then one of the guys said, ‘Well, they won’t let you do that, Quentin.’ And my answer was, 'Who’s they? Who are they to tell me what I can and can’t do? At the end of the day, the proof is in the pudding. I never let they stop me - I did what I wanted to do, and by doing what I wanted to do, we changed the '90s.
