    Why There Should be Censorship Censorship is the examination of material for objectionable matter. It is used to keep material from influencing people the wrong way.

    Humans are set apart from all other animals for one reason. We have the power of imagination and thus power to interpret what we read. Therefore, we can argue that the written word is the most meaningful of all types of communication. It is valid to say that if ten people read a book and were asked to retell the book in their own words that we'd hear ten different versions of the same book. In today's society, our interpretations are feared. We might interpret anything contrary to the author's ...

    Huckleberry Finn Should Not Be Banned If Mark Twain was alive today, he would probably be appearing at libraries and in online chat rooms during Banned Books Week to discuss the fate of his own books.

In some ways, not much has changed since 1...
