What a horribly immoral point of view!
I bet you idolise Ayn Rand as well.
Censorship of any kind is pretty much always wrong and usually damaging. IMO the only reason to support censorship, is if the thing being censored is actually causing some kind of actual harm to someone somewhere. Unfortunately, almost everything ever censored in the history of civilisation fails to pass this simple test.
The vast majority of things that are censored, are censored for religious reasons. Since religion is intangible, completely illogical, and based in a sort of "magical thinking" that human society can really do without, (and in fact causes far more harm than good) ... perhaps we should censor Religion instead?
