Transcript of Hailey Sowders
In 2008 alone, 513 attempts to ban books were made.
(www.factmoster.com) factmoster.com what is censorship? Censorship is the control of information and ideas circulated within a society. Censorship is achieved through the examination of books, television, plays, films, radio programs and other forms of communication for the purpose of suppressing ideas that are obscene or offensive.
(gilc.org/speech/osistudy/censorhip) Amendment I
Congress Shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or right of the people peaceably to assemble, and the petition the government for a redress of grievances. Night by Elie Wiesel was banned because it portrays graphic images and brutality towards a specific group of people. It is also too depressing, has religious values, and could be too much for some to handle. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou was banned because of sexual content, racism, offensive language, violence and age-inappropriateness.
(www.onlinecollegedegrees.org) in my opinion... Books shoud never be banned. Why are we shielding them from the public anyway? We can learn valuable life lessons and tolerance from seeing other points of view.If you find something offensive, then don't read it. The responsibility of choosing whether books are "appropriate" enough shouldn't be handed to the schools or public libraries. I should be able to read what book I want. "Censorship, like charity, should begin at home; but unlike charity, it should end there."
-Clare Booth Lane Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl- too depressing
Sylvester and the Magic Pebble by William Seig- portrays characters as animals and presents the police as pigs.
A Light in the Attic by Shel Silverstein- A suggestive illustration that might encourage kids to break dishes so they won't have to dry them.
