This story is just awful.
Free thinking, having an open mind, logic, reason, rationality, equality…what's wrong with these things?? Well, it's hard to control your sheep if they get too smart. That's why we had the dark ages for a thousand years. Think about where we would be if we had those years back to study science, philosophy, woman and human rights, etc… You know women just got the right to vote in 1920 !?
I'm sure the religious fundamentalists here (USA) would love to put restrictions on certain subjects being taught as well. Texas has been wanting to rewrite the textbooks to make them more of a fundamentalist nature.
If it ever happens…I guess it's off to Sweden!
