The modern equivalent of book burning is alive and well after it was revealed that a major bookstore in New Zealand has banned sales of Jordan Peterson’s 12 Rules For Life as a response to the Christchurch mosque massacre.

Whitcoulls has removed the book from all of its stores across the country, according to a staff member in Albany. A search for the book on the company’s websites returns no results.

In an email sent to a customer, the chain writes that the book is “currently unavailable which is a decision that Whitcoulls has made in light of some extremely disturbing material being circulated prior, during and after the Christchurch attacks.”

That probably relates to Peterson being pictured with someone who was wearing an “I’m a proud Islamophobe” t-shirt during his recent trip to New Zealand and previously describing Muhammad as a “warlord” (which is a indisputable statement of fact).

Jess Berentson-Shaw of the Workshop thinktank said censoring the book was a good idea because it showed businesses in New Zealand were trying to build an “inclusive society” (so “inclusive” that certain opinions are banned).

While Peterson’s book is banned, Hitler’s Mein Kampf is still available to order.

In a related story, Cambridge University rescinded its invitation to Peterson, who had been set to embark on a two month visiting fellowship, after some students complained.

I mean it’s not like universities are places where people are supposed to engage in vigorous debate about challenging new ideas, is it?
