Fahrenheit 451 in Holland

Censorship in Holland seems to be an abstract unrealistic notion. Considering that the Netherlands used to be renowned for it’s extreme open culture and liberalism, I had no idea books of any kind could ever be banned. One thing to remember about anything forbidden by society, especially when it’s involves group-think or the so-called protectionist agenda involving historical records – it must be passionately examined and observed. The knowledge therein must be thoroughly studied and grasped, regardless of how society or a select protected group feel they have the power to censor for those outside that selected group. Man is a selfish animal. In groups that can be a powerful motivating force of excessive coercion. Knowledge must never be censored regardless of the topic.

Censorship in Holland
I am of course, referring and reacting to the following news article featured in the Dutch News website. You can read that article at the following link:

No one group in society based on some archaic hierarchical dogma has the right to pressure or determine what the masses may investigate. In fact when such hypocrisy arises, one should march steadfast towards whatever is being dismissed, ridiculed, marginalized or lambasted, let alone censored. It is imperative to ignore such nonsense and to investigate for yourself that which someone or some group believe is detrimental to you as an informed adult. Fuck the thought police and all forms of hypocrisy that man as a species continues to perpetuate.

I wonder if The Federation of Dutch Jews would equally protest and ban the following controversial book?

Perhaps no considering most people are unaware of it’s content and the historical context of this social engineering masterpiece.

Yet for those who have read and understood the contents, would this also not qualify as being extremely offensive to the non-jew or goyim.

In the interest of protesting censorship in any form, I offer a direct link to purchase this most controversial book. In addition I have specifically chosen, the banned edition.

Often the forbidden fruit of society is enough to provoke the reverse reaction, especially where free will reigns supreme.

Hopefully this is enough to entice one’s curiosity and at the same time to take a stand against this hypocrisy and group think idiocy.

As Mark twain once exclaimed, Adam was but human – this explains it all. He did not want the apple for the apple’s sake, he wanted it only because it was forbidden. The mistake was in not forbidding the serpent; then he would have eaten the serpent.

The books are to remind us what asses and fool we are. They’re Caesar’s praetorian guard, whispering as the parade roars down the avenue, “Remember, Caesar, thou art mortal.” Most of us can’t rush around, talking to everyone, know all the cities of the world, we haven’t time, money or that many friends. The things you’re looking for, Montag, are in the world, but the only way the average chap will ever see ninety-nine per cent of them is in a book. Don’t ask for guarantees. And don’t look to be saved in any one thing, person, machine, or library. Do your own bit of saving, and if you drown, at least die knowing you were headed for shore.

― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.

– John F. Kennedy

Censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself. It is the hallmark of an authoritarian regime…
