Throughout the book a lot of harsh language was used, along with ideas that may be considered inappropriate. This book should be taught to High School students across the country, and it should not be a banned book. To Kill a Mockingbird teaches students morals, and ethics. The book is still partially accurate to what some people go through even in today’s world, and what the books reads is still a part of history that should not be covered up and tucked away. To Kill a Mockingbird should still be taught in school systems, and should not be a banned book because the novel focuses on a part of history that should not be ignored.
Depending on which way one may view a certain circumstance, everyone is a victim of censorship. Unwillingly volunteering our free thinking by a superior influence.

If someone thinks that they might get triggered by an event that takes place in a book, then maybe they shouldn’t be in an environment like this. I’m not saying that there aren’t tragic events that occur in the books we read such as Things Fall Apart, I’m saying that I don’t believe in censoring or warning people about a book because the world we live in is much crueler than any book. I don’t want my learning experience to be altered. If a person went through a traumatic event in the past it should be on them to notify the professor before the semester starts so that way things can be handled on a more individual and personal level. College is supposed to be challenging, so I believe that it is necessary to read books that will challenge us as a reader, not only by the literary difficulty but by the content being explained.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury shows an accurate representation of what the government does to its people. Governments from all over the world take part of censorship because they want to keep the people from explicit content to protect them. However, the government can be excessive in censorship and not tell its citizens enough content that they are left to wonder. Ultimately, the government sabotages any concept that conflicts with its own and the control of the people. First, in Fahrenheit 451 the government censors different forms of literature.
He claimed that people would call them insane and not listen to what they say. This being, he hoped by writing this it would also prevent this kind of tragic event from happening again. I he hopes it would give people a little more awareness in the world and who they trust. By this being said throughout the novel, dehumanization is important because it could change the way people act and how they react to certain thing that are going on. Dehumanization affects Elies identity which contributed to his purpose for uniting the novel Night and showing and telling truth.
A simple book written with the best intentions; Ray brings to the world Fahrenheit 451 in 1953 (Kipen). Having World War II influencing Ray’s ideas for the book. Fahrenheit 451 brings ideas and points that Ray Bradbury felt the need to write and open the public’s eyes to, as to how technology is changing people’s lives and they are leaving behind books and their critical thinking. Ray Bradbury brings a book about censorship and how banning or in this case burning books does not keep people from the curiosity of the message books have.

Liliana Ulibarri The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn Books have been passed down from generation to generation. Each story has a different meaning to each reader, which may help them develop as an individual. By reading books, one can be open to new ideas; however, some books can have a negative impact on the reader. Some argue that Mark Twain’s novel, Huckleberry Finn should be banned from schools because of its racism, societal downfalls, and immorality.

Life does not have a “trigger warning.” Including warnings about course content that may evoke feelings of distress does not guard students from their emotions; rather, it guards students from reality. The addition of these aforementioned precautions at DePauw University would not adequately prepare students for their lives beyond college. Therefore, a policy that requires faculty to provide trigger warnings alongside potentially sensitive material should not be enforced. A liberal arts institution is designed to open the minds of students to new ideologies and philosophies, regardless of how uncomfortable those outlooks are. However, by notifying students in advance about potentially sensitive topics, it makes it extremely feasible for students to reject opposing viewpoints or information that may conflict with their current beliefs.
The best way to get an accurate depiction of an event or time period is books. This way we can read and analyze the situation ourselves and gain our own opinion without contamination. Too many times we’re lead to believe something that isn’t the honest truth or it’s not as horrendous as we’re lead to believe and visa-versa. Perhaps that’s why books with naughty language and magic are constantly being challenged and banned; our priorities are somewhat warped and not where they should be. Perhaps, if we were to actually teach our children right from wrong, and acceptable from unacceptable we wouldn’t be so worried about what they read; But then we would also be required to hold ourselves accountable as
Tinker and her friends won, insuring freedom of expression to a degree. We already have guaranteed protection against censorship to some extent, so we should be trying to ensure our freedom from censorship on all bases, not censoring select mediums and subjects. Censorship should not be allowed in school. Exposure to different ideas, cultures, religions, and other things can be beneficial, and lack of exposure can be harmful and outright dangerous. Though censorship is sometimes for the best, most of the time it 's not worth it to erase information from a book of a lesson or a system entirely.
