Book banning?

Today I read an article from the New York Times about a movement toward banning books. I am so sorry to see this ugly idea coming up again. The minute we begin to censor what people can read we are in danger. Having access to other’s ideas is critical to our freedom. People are kept in ignorance can be controlled. We have seen that before in history. As always those who don’t learn from the past are condemned to repeat it.

  1. I agree to a point but I cannot agree to spreading hate or lies or glorified versions of our past that hurt others and continues to cause damage. I don’t think it should be up to me to tell others what they can or should read, but I think some things should never be written. (if that makes sense)
