"If so, there is nothing to discuss, and no reason to listen to those who would make themselves heard on the issue. And that is censorship.”
He's being disingenous, setting up a straw man like that.
No one has advocated "censorship," which is a function of a governmental body and not critics. But they have advocated terrible crimes, such as demanding proof and examining that proof, and finding it lacking, nonsensical and anti-intellectual.
No, the real sentiment is among the loonies who, because of class or greed or mischief, claim an Elizabethian conspiracy was behind an elaborate plot to disguise the identity of a man who, in his lifetime and for long afterward, no one suspected of being anything but who he was, William Shakespeare, the author of numerous plays and sonnets.
