Censorship - hear for the worst

Censorship, our right to know

Censoring media, books, etc, is depriving people of the knowledge to know. Joseph Bronsky said, "There are worse crimes then burning books, one is not reading them," I believe everyone should pay attention to this and if they don't like something, then turn it off. It's not the media's fault that people watch news they don't like, it's their fault for watching. This apples to books as well, they can put a book down whenever they want, they don't need to ban it. Some level of censorship needs to exist, but not as overboard as it is now. Censoring of nudity and sexual references needs to exist for children.


With censorship comes Blindness

Say no to censorship

Peter S. Jennison said,“Children deprived of words become school dropouts; dropouts deprived of hope behave delinquently. Amateur censors blame delinquency on reading immoral books and magazines, when in fact, the inability to read anything is the basic trouble.” This means banning books that are essential, is a big factor in the amount of "dropouts", because they can't relate to the crappy books that are left after all the good ones have been banned, due to religion or degrading the community. I think that they should use less censorship, and help promote the books teens do want to read.
