Does anyone remember the movie "Demolition Man?" They showed the "future," which consisted of examples that showed people getting arrested for using foul language - sex was illegal - there were no weapons - etc.
That is the direction we are headed, and there's no way around it. All of these people who have voices are going to say "This offends me" which will be the end of whatever action, book, organization, blah blah blah - the list goes on.
It's almost inevitable, which sickens me. But it's obvious.
I do not agree with book banning. If something offends you, then don't read it. If it's a book that explains how to make bombs, then I agree with the person up there somewhere who said it should be up to the parents to pay some damn attention to whats going on.
People are going to do what they're going to do. I highly doubt that a book about magic is going to influence a child to not be a christian, and so on.
I think I'm becoming disgusted with society as a whole - because it actually goes above and beyond just banning books.
This is what happens when boredom has taken over.
