Banned Books: How Schools Restrict the Reading of Young People


This Loooong Worldandi Article says Censorship closes discussion. It is ignorance by fiat and contagion because one person can’t wrap his mind around a larger concept.

"When critics insist that everyone else conform to their beliefs and opinions, when they stifle discussion about the perils that loom large on their children's horizons, they handicap the children and deny them the opportunity to understand the danger as well as the attractions of forbidden fruits."


A very fine article indeed. Lancto is a scribbler of no mean caliber. I heartily recommend this piece; it has numerous examples that indicate just how bankrupt censorship is as a method of socialization.
