Argument Against Book Burning

Satisfactory Essays
I am against book burning because books are full of knowledge and information and we should not want to burn that. Books are defined as freedom of press and knowledge. We should ban stuff about drugs, sex and alcohol. We should censor what are children watch and listen to but, if we censor too much stuff then they won’t be ready for the real world. If they go out into the real world after there parents censored so much stuff the won’t know how to respond to everything that is happening around them. Censorship helps to keep society safe. I think all of the hateful content should be blocked. If censoring was gone there would be an increase in bullying and there would be fewer suicides around the world.

    Mrs. Ackerman Block 5 6 September 2013 Ray Bradbury's book, Fahrenheit 451, is a good example of how censorship creates fear and ignorance in a society. It also shows how a government tries to maintain control over its people through censorship. What history has shown us through the years, however, is instead of bringing people together, control tactics like these, have actually divided societies and torn people apart.
