Are you ready for Banned Books Week? It starts this weekend, from Sunday, September 22, 2019 to Saturday, September 28, 2019.
As always, it comes as a surprise and crying shame that an event as Banned Books Week is needed. To ban a book, to censor it, goes against the advancement of human social and cultural development. It goes against the very definition of what civilization entails.
What’s next? Becoming a civilization where firemen will be burning books like in Fahrenheit 451? Why? Because it contains LGBTQIA+ content, profanity, drug use, violence, etc.
For generally reflecting the community around us. And providing differing viewpoints, that could lead to empathy and enlightenment. And evolvement of our current thinking.
