The Left and its liberal hordes like to tell us that they are the party of tolerance, of science, of superior moral wisdom and that it's the other guys, the Right, who want to deny science and ban books.
Here's a list of books that liberals have tried to ban, deny or slander, instead of debating the points and scientific data compiled within:
The Color of Crime, New Century Foundation's report on differences in crime rates by race, bias in the justice system, and interracial crime. First published as a monograph in 1999, the new 2005 edition of The Color of Crime is now available on-line as a free PDF download.
Although the debate on this book is over race, really it's a manifesto of social darwinism, suggesting that those who have their act together and earn more money are statistically more likely to be intelligent.
Extending the idea of The Bell Curve, this book suggests that the nations which prosper are those where intelligence, not natural resources or germs or steel, is of a higher average rate.
Exploring the "nature versus nurture" conflict, this book points out how intelligence is an inherited trait, and how personality is determined by genetics as well, casting doubt on the idea that we are all blank slates who can be educated into ideal citizens.
Next time you see leftists claiming that only the Right tries to deny science or ban/slander books, bring up these scientific, insightful and informative tomes.
The author of this piece believes in limited social darwinism, e.g. that the more intelligent in this society earn more money because they are more aware of what to fear and want to get their families to the suburbs.
The author of this piece is a liberal at heart who has come to believe that traditional society -- roles, caste, aristocracy and transcendental idealism -- is better than anything modern liberalism has to offer.
