Censorship of books is common and a real problem. Censorship is another word for banning, the government/libraries/schools are keeping these books away from the public. Students should be able to read what they please, and they should not be stopped from doing
Banning books has always been a big debate if it’s acceptable or not in the field of language arts… most Americans believe people should have the freedom to choose what they want to read. By banning books, our basic rights as US citizens are kind of taken away. Book banning affects the people who read books to the people who write them. I feel that most people banned or try to ban books because they want to protect others from different ideas and information. Banned books are basically books that are thought to be “unsuited” for their intended age group and are therefore challenged by parents to be removed from a school or any local library shelf.
Books are an essential way to gain knowledge whether they are controversial or not. Thousands of books have been banned from public libraries and schools due to being deemed ‘inappropriate’ by parents, administrators, or religious leaders. Whether Americans should ban books in public libraries and schools is an often debated topic. This censorship of books is dangerous, as it restricts the American people's’ ability to access information, leaving Americans ignorant. Historically, banning books is not a new practice.
Ever heard of books being banned? If so, did the news affect you, probably not at first but eventually the change will be remarkably noticeable. Say goodbye to straightforward information, rights, and useful instruction. All people have rights in the world and one of those rights is to read. Banning books should be prohibited because each person should be able to read whatever they need to, or desire to.
that the controversy regarding the ban is just a smokescreen as the tobacco industry would have been notified about the law months before it came under public scrutiny. My position on what governments across the world should do in regards to tobacco advertising is that some form of tobacco advertising should be permitted like corporate sponsorships while others should be illegal like TV and magaCase Analysis: Ban on Tobacco Ads by the Government of India The plan by India's government to ban tobacco advertising generated a lot of heated discussions for and against the move, this paper will summarize the arguments for and against the plan.

In the Novel Fahrenheit 451, one way that the government controls their society is by outlawing owning and reading any type of literature. There are a couple reasons why the government does this. One reason they ban books is because they want everyone to be equal, so everyone is more comfortable with the way they are. There are no more labels, such as “Genius” or “Stupid” or “better”. As Beatty states in the book “We must all be alike.
In my attempt to answer my research question, “Why are books banned?”, I have used three main sources to conduct my research on this topic, two online articles, and one book. From my two online articles, “10 Reasons for Banning Books, and 5 Much Better Reasons Not To” and “Banned Books: Reasons for Banning Books”, I have learned that books are most commonly banned because of religious views, political views, sexual dialog, racial themes, violence, and profanity. In the article “10 Reasons for Banning Books, and 5 Much Better Reasons Not To” Jamie Leigh writes: “Notice that not a single one of them referred to “statistics” or “research”. This highlights the fact that people are merely banning these books because they are offended by the content
Everyone Needs to Read Banned Books Banning challenged books from schools and libraries is wrong and is restricting students from seeing the real world. These challenged books can include many controversial subject matters, including sexual references, homosexuality, racial differences, alternative lifestyles and more. Though some of the reasons for banning books are understandable, they are not educating students on what they will see as they grow older and what they will encounter in reality. Banning books because of religious reasons should not happen, since some people are not religious. If someone thinks the novels are offensive and go against their beliefs, someone else might think otherwise.
Censorship of student speech is incompatible with higher education because not only is college meant for students to go learn and develop but it is also meant for students to be able to explore new ideas and be able to talk and say whatever they please. After watching the two videos by FIRE, i have concluded that in the first video when the University of Cincinnati had only let people that wanted to pass out flyers and make word of what there cause is about the college forced them to stay in a designated area that they could not move out of or they would be arrested for trespassing. The university that is doing this to the group is being very unconstitutional. Also because they are a big university they think that they could do anything even
Freedom of assembly has to be balanced with other people’s right if it causes problem in public order. When people think freedom of assembly, it’s always have to do with people protesting which causes violence. But they plea that’s peaceful protest when it’s not. People should have freedom to roam where they please and go wherever they’d like, just not when it involves violence on public property. “Although the government can't stop you from joining with a group of others to make your views known, you must do it in a peaceful manner” (The Right To Gather Has Some Restrictions).
Kingsbury discussed that during this time period after World War 1 any gossip, paranoia, scandals, etc was accepted in literary. Also that propaganda had non-traditional text. Which he then begin to talk about the evil of gossip influence war. Also he begin discussing about other conflicts as well as rape and the decrease of public morality. The source backs up my thesis because World War 1 changed society in where there were gossip and events that change literature and the author’s life.
Fahrenheit 451 and Tomorrow, when the war began have both been challenged there is a large amount of profanity in each book, but in Fahrenheit 451 it brings a whole different aspect to a reader in away its saying that it’s okay to burn books and live your life on a technology filled world .Fahrenheit should be banned from high
Would you rather read a book of your choice or read a book that has been banned.”Often challenges are motivated by a desire to protect children from “inappropriate” sexual content or “offensive” language. The following were the top three reasons cited for challenging materials as reported to the Office of Intellectual Freedom: content was considered to be sexually explicit, contained offensive language, and the materials were unsuited to any age group.” Banned books give people a sense of curiosity and excitement, which is why more and more people want to read banned books; to see what the hype was about. The first book ever to be banned was New English Canaan by Thomas Morton in 1637. “It was banned for theological and historical reasons
A person 's decision can impact others when someone wants to ban a book. The book that person’s trying to ban may be somebody 's favorite book. You can’t take away someone 's favorite book because you dislike the book. Your personal opinion shouldn’t be something permanent and affect everyone. I agree with Sarah Begley in “What The List of Most Banned Books Says About our Society 's Fears.” She states how we as citizens have rights, and one of them being the first amendment which grants us freedom of the
The Klondike gold rush was a bloody time in our history and some people may be ashamed. I don’t think that new, fresh, innocent readers should be reading books about blood and gore and a violent time in our history. While I believe history is important, I believe it should be discussed in a safe environment where readers don’t have to figure everything out for themselves. I believe we should be moving on from the dark pasts; not glorifying it. The last reason this book should be banned is because, as others have stated, it makes Jack London look like he glorifies animal abuse.
