Censorship and Hate

“You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.”

Ray Bradbury




I love public libraries because they are built on the principle that books are so important and so necessary to human flourishing that access to them cannot depend on your income.

Forced birth is a religious ideology.

Great, but .. again ... until I'm blue in the face ...

Forced birth is a religious ideology.

No justifications for it - the violation of bodily autonomy - have been advanced other than religion. None. Not "labour," not eugenics.. just "personhood" which a) is predicated on the existence of a religious "soul" as meaningful human cognition is not possible in the womb, and b) is irrelevant anyway, as personhood doesn't grant the right to violate bodily autonomy. No person at any age has that right.

This is why one hundred percent of forced birth organizations are religious, and zero percent are not. It is a religious ideology.

That makes it illegal as per the First Amendment. Americans have the right to be free from religion. It's literally the first law on the books.

Judges are supposed to be smart, right?

This isn't a difficult concept.

So what is it? Just widescale corruption?

What are we doing here?
