    Don’t be so pessimistic.

    Banning is one thing.
    Removing from the school library as inappropriate for a certain age group is quite another.
    Please try not to confuse the issue

    The Great Gatsby
    To Kill a Mockingbird
    The Grapes of Wrath
    1984
    Animal Farm
    Of Mice And Men
    The Jungle
    by Upton Sinclair


    …among other classics removed from school libraries as “inappropriate” for high schoolers.


    Because, God knows, you wouldn’t want kids to learn anything about human nature, or how to think or anything like that, rite? How “inappropriate” THAT would be for kids in high school.

    My high school class was “REQUIRED” to read books like that. I did not particularly enjoy them at that age (understatement). You can also add Clockwork Orange to that list. One boy on the school bus said he couldn’t believe the teacher was making the class read it because it was (in his words) “a filthy book” — a phrase he repeated about 15 times so everyone on the bus knew about it. So I wonder how many of the people who want to remove these and similar books from school libraries were forced to read them when they were in school.

    Once, at school, we had a temporary teacher; (an elderly lady who used to teach at the school, years before) and she read from the set book that term (a war story). She surprised us by reading the swear words and earned herself a lot of respect in doing so. Miss “B” you were OK with us.

    Good news: they’ve lifted the ban on Tintin books at the Stockholm Public Library. I always say ’don’t censor — footnote!"

    sometimes i wonder about people, and how petty they are. telling people what to read, drink, eat, etc..

    Once my wife and I were in the Chicago main library, and when we got to the section where the books on Paganism and the Occult were, we caught a high-school age zealot who was taking books on those subjects and hiding them in other places on the stacks. When we confronted him, he said he was hiding the books so people couldn’t be tempted by the devil. We lectured him on first amendment rights, free will, threatened to do the same thing to bibles, then frog-marched him to the nearest security guard and reported him. When we told a librarian what he’d done, his card was permanently revoked on the spot.

    All the while, he claimed we were persecuting him.

    Good for you! And he’s an idiot.

    That’s a very fine line as Lynne B noted. Of course, some are easy—50 Shades vs To Kill a Mockingbird.
