So, as you could probably guess since I'm hanging out around these parts, I'm opposed to censorship and book burnings and such.
I went with my family to the CBC Book Sale yesterday. The deal of the day was to buy a canvas shopping bag for $25 and fill it up with whatever fits inside (I got about 30 classic SFF titles, super excited).
There was a small-ish display of books by that fucker Kevin Trudeau, and I was tempted to get another bag and buy them all just so nobody else could get their hands on them. I could probably have fit the whole pile into one bag.
However, in essense isn't this the same thing as burning books because I disagree with them?
It's a tricky thing, and in the end my greed for the $25 and my general laziness tipped me over into not doing anything (as well as the fact that based on the display, and from asking my wife who visited the sale at the very start and at the very end, the stack of books hadn't really sold anything over the duration of the entire sale).
ETA: I put this here instead of Skepticism because at the core it's an ethical issue and not a specifically skeptical one.
