      “Heresy was good: heresy meant opportunity.” ——Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game by Michael Lewis1. Yes, I banned a book. I am a seasoned librarian and academic library director and a supporter of free speech and democracy,2 but I banned a book. The term heresy quickly comes to mind in the world of librarianship, but the story is much deeper than it first Author: Scott R. DiMarco. In my opinion, I think that a form of censorship has to be put in place to maintain order in a society and protect the young from malignant content.

Aldgate, Censorship and the Permissive Society: British Cinema and Theatre , (Oxford, ) p.3 This book provides a unique cross-national examination of patterns of order and conflict surrounding football. For a good list of organizations that are dedicated to fighting book censorship, just take a look at the list of sponsoring organizations in my article about Banned Books Week.

      Censorship, the suppression of words, images, or ideas that are "offensive," happens whenever some people succeed in imposing their personal political or moral values on others. Censorship can be carried out by the government as well as private pressure groups. Censorship by the government is unconstitutional.   Censorship and the Permissive Society: British Cinema and Stage or film presentations of Look Back in Anger, A Taste of Honey, Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Alfie, and Darling were much changed, even transformed, by censorship between Book Edition: 4.
