5.08 Outlining Your Argument
Body Paragraph 1
Some people believe books should be banned from society, because some books have profanity. There's bad language surrounding us. Whether its people talking on the phone, or even parents getting frustrated in traffic. Children should know what is allowed to be said. Their parents should teach them. Another reason they think books should be banned is because of suggestive content that may encourage inappropriate behavior in children. Society believes they should keep children away from inappropriate things to keep them safe, but its keeping kids away from learning life lessons. A kids life is going to be hard for them when they're on their own and facing real problems or in situations that are difficult.
Body Paragraph 2
In my opinion books should not be banned because it takes away reality people can escape to. Some people, including children, may not have a good life and need to escape and get away from their life for awhile. This can apply to school even, for example, if a child doesn't have many friends they can take out a book and have time pass by feeling like they're part of something. Literature is a form of art, it's a way people can express themselves, and banning books would be taking away someone's way of expressing themselves. Removing a way to express themselves is like taking away their ability to speak and communicate, and it'll make it hard for that person day to day because they can't express themselves. Expressing through writing is the same as expressing through paintings or singing.
I think people should be allowed to read whatever they want, as long as they know what they're reading, and are mature enough to handle it. If they are children or teenagers they should have a parents consent. When you chose a book, you usually chose it because you know what it's about and what the content is, and are interested in it. Banning a book would not solve the problem, as people would just fight their way into reading these books. The Harry Potter series made it to theaters as a movie based on a book series, people are going to want to read it. It's impossible to keep people from reading what they want to read.

"Throughout history, nations, peoples, and governments have censored writers and their works on political, religious, sexual, and social grounds. Although the literary merit of the majority of these books has been proven time and time again, censorship efforts are still in place today. From Animal Farm to The Grapes of Wrath, The Koran to The Talmud, Ulysses to the Harry Potter series, The Canterbury Tales to The Bell Jar, this revised edition examines the many struggles these books faced in order to be read" 120 Banned Books: Censorship Histories of World Literature.
Books are being banned throughout the world and kept from people being able to read them. By banning books kids loose some morals that they learn from reading stories. They don't have some lessons to live by either. Going through life without the knowledge of what's on the outside can cause many kids to be unhappy. They dont have knowledge of all the bad things that some people go through and assume that everything is all rainbows and butterflies and everyone is happy. Parent try the keep their kids safe and think they're doing the right thing, when in some cases its not right. Society thinks that because some books have suggestive content and profanity they need to be banned. Banning books with profanity won't teach kids right and wrong. I dont think inappropriate books should be banned. Kids need to read and can learn from a characters mistake. Some people use books to escape their problems. Banning books will definitely make troubled people less happy.
