Writer opines that Jordan Peterson book should not be published.

I think he is right here, no publisher has a right to publish anyone:

https://www.theguardian.c...k-contract

Once the book is out you support the speech. Can a religious press be forced to publish an pro-abortion book? Common sense. Peterson is a bigot.

All you others say Hell Yea!! woot!

this should be a no brainer:


No company including any publisher should be forced to provide any good or service. You would be hard pressed to provide any examples where I would agree. Some will post non-examples or examples where they confuse a good/service with a customer--but that is a very diffrent issue.

If you do not defended some speech you abhor then you do NOT support free speech.

If you start like that, putting the word bigot in the title of the article, then I don't need to read the rest. Of coursd a publisher has the right to publish anyone. Banning books or not having them published because you don't like them, is censorship. And, as George Clinton said, censorship is far worse than anything anybody might have to say.

I am not even sure what you are trying to say... you seem to be saying that a publisher should be limited to what they are allowed to publish but the link seems to be saying the opposite? that they can publish or not publish as they seen fit.

one very basic concept is if one has a codified or recognised right to do something then they mush have a more basic right to NOT do that thing. *that is the codified/recognised right is an exception to the more basic liberty*

so you, once again, seem to be speaking out in opposiiomn to free speech and a free press.

If you do not defended some speech you abhor then you do NOT support free speech.

Nathan Robinson should and does know better. Penguin Randomhouse are owned by a massive media conglomerate and, despite what their marketing might try and convince you, they follow the money, not morals. They have no obligation to publish Jordan Peterson but i'm quite sure they have an obligation to maximize profit. Penguin Randomhouse are not your friend. That's capitalism and Nathan knows this.

Why they are doing it. But if it was only about profit they would not publish books, because nobody reads shit.

It's a multi billion dollar industry regardless if people read the books or not, they just have to sell them. Besides, it's also a respected industry and with respect comes access.

I have no idea why they are specifically publishing Peterson, certainly he has a big following of people who love his stuff and take delight in buying it, even if just to own the libs. There's probably a lot of money in that alone.
