On the Role of Censorship. We believe in censorship. Sometimes. Of course, that’s a very unpopular view these days; censorship looks small-minded, defensive and the enemy of a hard-won freedom to express oneself without interference.

People associate censorship with book burning, political repression and ignorant intolerance. Why do schools, libraries, bookshops and book councils feel the need to censor and restrict our ability to read what we wish. Books such as Catcher in the Rye, Catch 22 and American Psycho have been censored in various areas of society.

In numerous communities, people are determined to impose their own narrow views on everyone else, and censor what they do not approve. The First Amendment exists to protect speech and activities that are unpopular —if only those ideas which were popular were protected, it.

Censorship is an institutional constraint. When we hear the word censorship, we often imagine a banned book (i.e. schools and libraries removing the book). This is censorship at the point of reception. Protests erupt.
