The American Library Association’s Office for Intellectual Freedom reports that no less than 42 of what are widely considered the 100 top novels of the 20th century have, at one time or another, faced the threat of removal from bookstores and school libraries by those looking to suppress art and thought for the “common good”.

Free and democratic societies must, by their nature, accept voices that stand against freedom.  However, when we succumb to those voices and act in favour of those attempting to silence the voices of others, we should ask ourselves if we are indeed free, at all.

What do you think?
