But they also are going after free speech.
It's one thing to deny the terrorist bastards the infamy and fame they so desire. It's another, as NZ has done, to make it a crime to posses or show people their manifesto.
And conveniently this particular manifesto is where the monster says he expects and endorses the State to take certain actions. Actions that the State eagerly and proudly did.
"The Office of Film and Literature classification announced Saturday that the document is objectionable under the law."
Well... isn't that a handy power for their State to have.
This was said by..... "New Zealand's Chief Censor David Shanks." And yes, they do have a Chief Censor. Take in this puff piece on the office from a couple years ago
Keep that in mind, all the people going "We should be like New Zealand." They have a Chief Censor, who will ban documents that are problematic for the goverment.
Of course you'l say "It's on the internet, so it's silly for them to think they can ban it." Which I say "Welcome to the Party, Pal."
But more importantly...
Now only is the NZ goverment doing some of the things the terrorist wanted, but they are literally making it a crime for someone to provide evidence of it.
Just consider the incentives of that.
