On Cousin Marriage Book (and censorship)

Trust me, I know exactly how you feel. Internet comments are our enemy. I get really disheartened whenever I see them, because it makes me wonder how we can win against such a hateful mass of people.

Thank you, thefinalmanifesto. It makes me feel a little better knowing I’m not alone in this. I usually avoid places I feel are made for restless people to do nothing but ridicule things they don’t understand. But I checked out this site because I couldn’t believe their ‘mission’…to keep library books out of the reach of the public because they don’t think the content is ‘appropriate’… trying to control people’s access to information. Just another way of controlling their minds. And to call something ‘awful’ because they don’t personally like its material or subject theme… The quality of a book shouldn’t be determined by someone’s emotional reaction. Especially a book that simply seeks to present new findings and facts, REALITY in place of destructive myths. That’s a good thing. If they don’t like it all they have to do is avoid it, but to deny other people’s rights to access this information is downright oppressive and only suggests by extension that discrimination against minorities is acceptable.
