so maybe it's time to scrap all these books and just be nice to each other
I wish it were that simple! But I guess that's the conundrum... if we want to support and allow the freedom of speech, then it seems logical that we should also support the freedom of belief.

After all, burning books that we personally don't believe in is a bit similar to what happened during the Inquisition, no?

But I certainly do agree that we ought to be nicer to one another... and one step toward that direction might be tolerance (not toward violence of course, but toward the diversity of belief).
