  • Ronald Dahl is now on a list because of some of how he describes children as fat or ugly and some other things. Ronald Dahl is a beautifully honest writer who tells children the way the world and parents often are.

    Mark Twain has long been on lists because his characters accurately used the n-word to show endemic racism, discrimination and bigotry in Huck Finn. Twain’s writings probably had a bigger effect to reduce cultural acceptance of racism than any PHD of “non-offensiveness” could.

    I’m as progressive as you can get but you’d think the liberals on the left would at some point start to refocus from political correctness that has diminishing returns to, you know, winning something important politically? The far right and far left meet in the middle on censorship.
