Legislating Holocaust Denial

How stupid and futile to make Holocaust denial illegal. Firstly, the idea that you can stop people from thinking certain thoughts by making them illegal is straight out of George Orwell. But more importantly, it is an example of addressing the symptom and not the core problem. Why don't they address the reasons why Holocaust denial happens?

I agree. Holocaust deniers make me sick but in a way I have a bigger issue with legislating thought and speech. Hate Crime legislation is tricky too.
