To ban ALL ALTERNATIVE THINKING???!?
This reminds me of Foundation and Empire:
Hardin remained silent for a short while. Then he said, "When did Lameth write his book?"
"Oh--I should say about eight hundwed yeahs ago. Of cohse, he has based it lahgely on the pwevious wuhk of Gleen."
"Then why rely on him? Why not go to Arcturus and study the remains for yourself?"
Lord Dorwin raised his eyebrows and took a pinch of snuff hurriedly. "Why, whatevah foah, my deah fellow?"
"To get the information firsthand, of course."
"But wheah's the necessity? It seems an uncommonly woundabout and hopelessly wigmawolish method of getting anywheahs. Look heah, now, I've got the wuhks of all the old mastahs--the gweat ahchaeologists of the past. I wigh them against each othah--balance the disagwee- ments--analyze the conflicting statements--decide which is pwobably cowwect--and come to a conclusion. That is the sciectific method. At least"--patronizingly--"as I see it. How insuffewably cwude it would be to go to Ahctuwus, oah to Sol, foah instance, and blundah about, when the old mastahs have covahed the gwound so much moah effec- tually than we could possible hope to do."
Hardin murmured politely, "I see."
Scientific method, hell! No wonder the galaxy was going to pot.
Left wing government politiscience.
Lord, just loose the Horsemen already.
Isn’t this what the Church was accussed of doing for so long, by these very same people?
IOW this is thought crime.

Colebatch explains that in paragraph 4.10 of the Finkelstein report it is stated that the council should control speech in Australia because the people are too stupid to be allowed free access to news.
It is not hard to see where the leftists want this to head.
In my ongoing search for a place to serve as Galt’s Gulch I have now removed Oz as a candidate. Too bad.
