Unintended consequences

Steven Pinker: Here’s How Political Correctness Winds Up Creating Its Own Antagonists:  An  “argument that efforts to make certain topics verboten wind up creating a kind of intellectual black market where the potential for reaching more extreme conclusions is heightened unnecessarily.”
I don’t really think this is a new concept.  All sorts of living things (children, dogs) often are enticed by the forbidden (oh, and Adam and Eve (and their descendants presumably)).

So maybe just ignore the link entirely.
