Ace: you could be on the wrong web site.

Personally, I'm against banning ANY books. You don't want to read them, fine. Don't read them. Nobody's putting a gun to your head (yet) and insisting you read something.

People are more likely to put a gun to someone's head and insist they NOT read something.

You don't keep knowledge from people by banning its access. If that were true, half the population at least would freeze to death every winter because they hadn't yet learned how to make a fire...

Speaking of which, while this isn't the Web site for it, perhaps you (or your instructor) should read "Fahrenheit 451" - no, I'm not talking about Michael Moore's movie on 9/11.

The premise of the question - and assertion - is faulty. It assumes a) that books should be banned and b) they should be banned because of their content, whether it is the language used, the description of people, or the message.

I believe it was banned, at one time, for the reasons you mention. But that's because the country at the time was run largely by narrow-minded, xeonophobic, tea-tottling puritanical parochial fear-mongers who worried "exposing" people to a book that actually mirrored - reflected - a segment of society at the time might some how "corrupt" their otherwise pure, blissfully ignorant forms.

Best,
hijo
