With the fairly recent (in our countries history, that is) ease of self-publishing, the notions of free spreech and no book banning are getting harder to defend.

Is it okay for people with, what the average person would say are, really out there ideas (e.g., the holocaust never happened, the government really took down the twin towers in NY…) to publish those out there ideas?

And what about hate speech/writing? Is that all right to sell in your local bookstore?

Read Ron Charles’s post on the Washington Post’s website and let me know what you think.
