Ian Fleming’s novels about agent 007 have been republished so as not to offend

If you are black, Asian, female or somewhat obese, you may have had some internal conflict reading the James Bond books written by Ian Fleming, since in the 50s and 60s he used certain expressions to describe ethnic groups, religions or body sizes. which today are considered offensive. This means, in these times, that you have to eliminate those words and concepts. Because nobody in 2023 seems to realize that this was written 70 years ago, and that other things were “okay” to say and write then, but that the world has evolved since then and that we humans today are offended by everything. From all over the world, and all the time.
