I very much agree with John here.  Pierre Bourdieu has an interesting
essay on censorship in which he talks about this kind of thing
(repression masquerading as "civilized" debate).  I cite the essay in my
collection The Administration of Aesthetics.  Also very astute on same
is Jeffrey Wallen in his excellent book Closed Encounters.  Where, by
the way, is Nietzsche in his discussion?

That's good, since I am unable to find any references to 'authorities'
in Sean's posts. Perhaps you could tell me which ones I've missed.
