You know who bans books? Communists. Banning books is the equivalent to government sanctioned thought. If you are prohibited from ideas, you can’t think anything except what the tyrannical government imposes on you. That’s the idea behind it, at any rate, since authoritarian regimes tend to view their citizens as easily manipulated, mindless subjects.
Looks like communist progress is happening right here in America on the campus of Georgetown University. The school just announced this week that they plan to ban a number of books that students have deemed “offensive.”
