I would only remark that in large chunks of Europe is way out of
political correctness not only to condone the Holocaust; not only to
deny its reality or scale on whatever ground or to compare it with
other mass killing events; but since the beginning of the nineties
even to discuss publicly... whether special laws limiting freedom of
speech and/or research in this specific respect are justified and
acceptable or not.

Those possibly adhering to the say "I disapprove of what you say, but
I will defend to the death your right to say it", if they even exist,
are in fact not so far from being put to test on that one.

But, hey, the good news is that we are still somewhat more flexible on
global warming, flat-earth theories, UFOs and evolution... :-)
