    Thank god, that is mostly false: bad books are full of OPINIONS, good
    books are full of IDEAS!

    interestingly, the original modern notion of *freedom of speech* ---you
    know, the one the French Revolution (and the American probably as well)
    was originally fought about-- had nothing to do with protecting peoples
    right to express their opinions, but to discuss and criticize matters of
    public concern. More than a couple of centuries later, this idea has been
    corrupted into the widespread myth that everyone has a right to hold their
    own opinion whatsoever and, furthermore, than they have the right to be
    heard expressing it.
