Then the book deal was cancelled by S&S, my immediate reaction was that he would self-publish it anyways. This ended up being true. Despite still having a platform and fan base, the cancellation put a chilling effect on the publicity of the book. Many libraries simply do not purchase self-published material on principle because it has not been professionally reviewed. That decreases access for anyone who is either financially unable to purchase the book on their own, anyone who may not have access to Amazon.com, or anyone who is interested but not committed to buying it. The interested but not committed are the most relevant group here, because hearing someone in their own words is more valuable to learning about them than what other people say about them. Which is exactly why I watched that entire infamous "pedophilia" podcast myself and came to my own conclusion (being: what he said was indeed strange but I followed his logic easily). Both Non-Pedophiles AND Pedophiles still have 1st Amendment rights anyways. I emailed my old Intellectual Freedom & Censorship professor from grad school about the cancellation and her response was that Milo already had a platform so it's not the same type of insidious censorship. I respect this professor but I disagreed with her opinion.
I have faced book challenges at my job. People have called for me to be fired whilst rampaging through the library, screaming and beating themselves over a book they allowed their child to read. Censorship sucks and defending the 1st Amendment is hard but ultimately always worth it. It is important to be mindful that censorship can come from both the political right and the political left. It seemed a bit ironic to me that all these alleged advocates of free speech were refusing to get a book called Dangerous because it would be too dangerous for people to read. I ordered the book on July 5, 2017 and read it within 48 hours.
Like I said, I have little to no experience with Milo so I fact checked a lot of his statements and citations. I soon found that they were all legitimate and ended up putting 2-3 sociopolitical books on my to-read list. I read rather widely...for example I have read Donald Trump and I plan on reading Hillary Clinton's upcoming book. I'll read anyone's book to gain insight into their mind. Trump was pretty unbearable to read - no matter my view on his politics - the writing was bad. Milo was more invigorating to read than Trump, probably because he is by trade a professional word slinging journalist. I would also recommend reading this entire book in Milo's super-gay voice; it makes the experience all the more enjoyable.
My final point is this person that the entire world tells me is an untrustworthy dangerous lunatic is in reality...not that. It is important to note that I would not have known this at all if not for having the opportunity to read his own words in concentrated book format. Shock value Breitbart articles are a different reading experience entirely. I'm not saying I agree with literally all the things Milo Yiannopoulos says or stands for but that doesn't matter. I disagree with many things many writers have to say but it does not mean I will refuse to read them. Dangerous is a decent book and censorship is dangerous.
By now everyone knows how the left took him down and it was laughably pathetic as usual.
In the spirit of a true progressive Milo comes out of the gate swinging. Left and right hooks and jabs of wit, humor, snark and most importantly truth.
I've never considered myself alt right but that's the label middle of the road people have been smacked with.
Milo comes back from a takedown that would have left most people in hiding.
Just like Milo, it's our duty to spread the truth no matter what. All it takes for evil to win is for good people to do nothing.
Right now the alt left in all of its hateful, rampaging violence is "resisting".
...I'm still not sure what exactly but we must resist also by refusing to back down from these new oppressors. The future of this country and Europe depends on it.
Awesome and fabulous as only Milo can be.
"In short, I’m the Left’s worst nightmare: a living, breathing refutation of identity politics, and proof that free speech and the truth wrapped in a good joke will always be more persuasive and more powerful than identity politics."
This book is well written, and backed up with facts. It is extraordinarily funny, and gets the modern conservative viewpoint across in a way that stereotypical stuffy conservatives can only imagine.
One of the main reasons that I purchased and read "Dangerous" is because I do not like being told what to read, how to think, or how to live my life. In today's society, where seemingly right is wrong and up is down, Mr. Yiannopoulos is a refreshing voice of reason.
I, having finished "Dangerous" in one sitting, will be passing it on to my high-school-aged daughter. While I have tried my best to encourage free-thinking in her impressionable young mind, the mindset in her public school has her believing all sorts of PC based nonsense. Perhaps the "Dangerous [redacted to meet Amazon Standards]" can reach her where stuffy old dad cannot... I believe that "Dangerous" should be mandatory reading prior to entering an institution of "higher learning."
Note: Amazon deemed my original review unpublishable, and "spiteful." I asked for specific examples, but they have thus far been unable or unwilling to give examples. This is my second attempt at passing their censors...
