Liberate Speech and the Free Flow of Information on Amazon.com!
Representatives for Amazon.com have defended the listings of various books [scholarly research, opinion, biography and fiction], concerned with issues commonly labeled “pedophilia”.
A number of just such books [some well researched, and supported by empirical data] have been available through Amazon.com, for several years…and at least one, for roughly a decade.
Without getting into to much detail…A very short lived e-book entitled “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: A Child-lover’s Code of Conduct” was published, exclusively for the Amazon Kindle [an e-book reader, produced and sold by Amazon.com]. CNN’s Anderson Cooper picked up on this story, after seeing some uproar…and he promptly did a hatchet job on Amazon.com, as well as a few different books.
Anderson Cooper’s yellow journalism caused a lot of misunderstanding amongst the public, as well as Amazon.com stock holders…Stock value dropped in the company rapidly, and by a substantial degree. Amazon.com executives panicked, and started delisting from their website everything they believed to have any positive expressions, related to “pedophilia”.
In this whirlwind purge [a virtual “book burning”], Amazon.com delisted a number of scholarly books, containing sound research…and this is really where the problem rests. Amazon.com has apparently decided, to interfere with the free flow of research findings [regarding “pedophilia”], which have previously been sold and exchanged via their website.
Has Amazon.com decided to censor?…to join in on a campaign to skew?…to foster and shelter ugly, malicious and devastating stereotypes?
Amazon.com needs to remain impartial!
