Of course, we could pretend this is about a first amendment right. The problem is that here in America – the land of the free – we were supposed to understand that our freedoms are only freedoms so long as they don’t encroach upon those of our neighbor. We were supposed to understand that freedom for the sake of freedom is irresponsible. And in a country where criminal charges have been established when the speech of one man encourages, instructs, incites the criminal activity of another, I would think Amazon would exercise some common sense. To sell a book which makes a case for not only the criminal but the deplorable and call it a defense of freedom is a great illustration of the weaknesses of our society. We want what we want because we think we can justify it by the Bill of Rights instead of adhering to any form of a social contract in which I am willing to restrict myself – as in no one should have to ask or tell me – in order to safeguard others, particularly those who are incapable of protecting themselves. Absolute shame, Amazon. This isn’t even an Aryan manifesto, a guide to adultery or any other manuscript that encourages the unsavory beliefs and behaviors between adults. This is about how to find love and sexual fulfillment with someone’s child.
The fact that I had to write any of this is absurd and enraging. I’m not going to bother continuing to preach to the choir, you guys, there’s really nothing else to say. If anyone disagreed anyway, there’d be no cause for discussion. We are fundamentally different. Just thought you might like to know this…for some reason.
