Tis banned book week, people! *hands party hats out*
yeah, I don't really have any groundbreaking opinions on this one. Censorship is pooppy. It causes blindness ignorance. Ignorance causes intolerance and fear. Fear causes hatred. yadda yadda yadda...
Seriously though. The government (or other "man") controlling what ideas people have access to is straight out of some terrifying scifi novel. It just seems like one of those things, that when you look at it, is completely black and white wrong. I really can't understand, when looking at the essence of it, someone would ever consider this as a good idea.
on a related note, this is really cool. Hundreds of videos of people reading their favorite banned books on the interwebz. http://www.youtube.com/bannedbooksweek
