Four points.

First: Should every sentence be a life sentence? If someone has served their debt to society, what message are we sending by continuing to punish the person.

Second: Knowledge is not an evil. Increasing our understanding of this hypothetical person's mindset via their writings is not a bad thing.

Third: If it is truly the will of the public that these people should not profit, the public should avoid buying the book.

Forth: The legislative pen should not be guided by the emotional eruptions of the gutter presses.
State: 'cranky' cranky

Thank you. This is what I've been arguing, but less succinctly because of how annoyed I got by the thoughtless responses to this question.

Their hearts are in the right place, they don't want to support the rise to power of bad people. Unfortunately they then do the easy thing and pass the buck to their legislators.
