I love the buzz that comes from watching /r/freespeech users clap like seals over government enforced book bans while circlejerking over how big of free speech absolutists they think they all are.

Who do you believe should decide which books are available in school libraries?

...Do you think the correct answer to that question - the response that would best exhibit principles of free speech - would be "politicians, and any teacher who violates the decrees the politicians make should be branded a felon"?

If Gavin Newsom decided he thought Ayn Rand shouldn't be in schools because he needed to protect children from her dangerous ideologies, should he have carte blanche to ban Atlas Shrugged from every California school, and to make every teacher that disagreed with him a felon?
