Saving Our Children From the First Amendment

Fang-Face writes “Here is a book review on a work by a censorship advocate, written by Marjorie Heins and posted to the Free Expression Policy Project. The author, Kevin Saunders, is basically calling for the kind of draconian measures that would ensure mass book burnings in the library parking lot to clear all the “hate speech” and “Harmful To Minors” material from the shelves. The review also has a link to a reply by Saunders.

At first glance, I would say Saunders’s agenda is based on the same basic attitude that wholesale filtering is: Adults are forbidden to speak in the presence of children, or where any child might be present.”
