Ok I agree with people about the freedom of speech thing but this is the exception that proves the rule.
I belive in freedom of speech
but this guy took it to far on a taboo subjt plus all he is doing was feeding some other sicko's fantasy..I find him deplorable and disgusting I have no sympathy for this sicko he is a pedophile why else would he write this book.. this guy needs to go to jail..I cant believe anyone can support this creep he is a threat to all of our innocent children.
ok im done with this topic makes me to angry!
So as humans we are now stuck to follow the laws written long ago, simply because we are to simple to force the laws to evolve right along with us.
This book is written to help pedophiles hurt children... Not one of you defending this book would enjoy meeting me..

I think pedophilia and the potential harm of children trumps freedom of speech... There's a line that has to be drawn. IMO
Ahhh and who gets to decide where that line is?
Do you wanna give that power to the government or should we have a referendum?
Bottom line is, if vendors don't want to sell certain books, or publishers publish them, that's where it stops. Who's to say it wasn't humor? What about a book about "How to sautee Black/White/Yellow/Silver People" (pick your color). That's intended harm right?
Don't get me wrong, the topic of the book despicable, it should never have been published and Amazon as a store should never have put it on their shelves, BUT the guy is allowed to write whatever he wants.
Once you start saying 'well, that's where I draw the line, I'll let the government handle this one' you give your constitutional rights away. Never, and I mean NEVER, is it OK for the government to decide what is free speech and what is not.
