Is that the series where the 'hero' mows down a bunch of peaceful protesters on the basis that they are the enemies of truth?

Because if so I read that excerpt and it was enough for me to nope the hell away from Terry Goodkind.

I do not remember such an excerpt. But there was a lot of pseudo BDSM scenes, especially in the earlier novels in the series.
