should a book that instigates to racial hate and crimes be banned from society?
so if we have in the coran: "kill the infidel next to you" shouldn't this book, or this specific part of it, be banned? outlawed? isn't a crime to instigate to violence?

You cant have free speech and ban books at the same time.

I'm voting for free speech.

yes free speech like "i don't like that person", "i don't like that religion" but "kill that person!" should be allowed?

No. censorship is bad. There is no room for censorship apart from not yelling Fire in a crowded theater. Frankly, I think since most folks could verify there isn't one either by sight or smell I think there should be no exceptions.

Free speech means that you can say anything you want. You're a hypocrite if you say you like free speech but you want to ban a particular book because it says something you find offensive.

You could say that you wanted to kill everyone, but until you act on that, you have not committed a crime.

No harm, no foul.

A book doesn't instigate violence, violent people instigate violence.

So from this, I take it that you are completely against free speech and you are pro-censorship.
