    Apparantly Wilhelm Reich is the only author (at least that I'm aware of) who has the dual distinction of having had his publications burned both by the Nazi and American regimes. Guess they're not on the list though.

    Lol,Lets see them burn an Ebook,bastards.Freedom of speech and press and you want to ban literature.Bastards.Whats wrong with having a character call someone a black or white or cracker or ect?It just adds more interest instead of having
    "Hes a stupid African American" to having "Hes a nigger"
    The second statement shows a little bit into the characters character,if hes either uncivilized or just doesnt like black people.But the first statement just doesnt have any of that.
    Why ban books for racial slurs or political/religious messages?I mean why not have everyone read the ABC's book for their entire lives if you dont want people to learn about the other perspective or take a look into the past/possible future?

    IMO banning of books nowdays do not work with such advanced medias...so its pretty useless. also i would pretty much like to read banned books coz it arouse more curiousity hehe...

    I'm sure that there will be safe sex stuff with reading it...and lots of aids will kill you things...and if you have sex you'll die... things like that.

    Burn trees not books !!!

    Just kiddin don't burn or ban anything, free speach is important
    P.S. Don't play with matches
    If there's no meaning in it, that saves a world of trouble as we needn't try to find any
