Yeh we know Bush - economic unilateralist, and general dumb ass.

Censorship:
What do people think should be censored, if anything?
What about Nazi literature, What about bomb making manuals?

I’m trying to remember that J.S. Mill thing about 'harm'
any way I’m with him on his harm thing, the state has no right to interfere with individual unless they are harming others. The individuals own person does not count in this harm principle, but children and persons of mental unbalance do i.e. Their liberty can be invaded to prevent them from harming them selves.

Only problem is what is 'harm'?



P.s. + is cencorship done in more covert and sneeky ways these days?
