Ken Meyercord questions Amazon’s bizarre ban on 68 history books. The books in question are factually-oriented, often highly technical, offering little or nothing that could conceivably be described as “hate” or “bigotry.” But the sober scientific and archeological facts in these books, according to Amazon, must be far more dangerous than Hitler’s Mein Kampf and the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, both of which Amazon happily sells and profits from. Jeff Bezos, please come on my show and explain!
Ken Meyercord lives in the Washington, DC area, where he haunts think-tank events to raise iconoclastic questions (see Adventures in Think Tank Land). He produces the public access TV show Civil Discord, on which “Discordant views on controversial topics are discussed in a civil manner.” He recently published a memoir of the Vietnam War years, Draft–Dodging Odyssey (under the penname “Ken Kiask”).
