the price of liberty

The First Amendment guarantees Philip R. Greaves absolute freedom to publish “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct” whether the government likes it or not. Constitutionally, there’s not a damn thing they can do about it. And if someone representing Amazon.com was stupid enough to contractually agree to sell it, they’re stuck, too.

Am I happy knowing this book is out there, available to perverts everywhere? Hell, no. What can I do about it? Well, not buying anything from Amazon.com seems like a pretty good place to start. I can also put pressure on those in Washington to make sure sales of Greaves’ work are monitored by law enforcement. In the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave, that’s just about it.

Oh, and I can also rant about it on my silly little blog…

        If like fiction I guess it is great…but for me with my readings in political philosophy it is of little help….and if your book does not have a table of contents…you will spend lots of time trying to find your way through the pages….
