On self cesorship and fear
What an interesting world we live in. On the one hand, you have the uproar over the clsoing of an opera in Germany that used the beheaded heads of religious leaders including Mohammad (see Tallguy and PARADOSIS for more.)
On the other hand we have Banned Books Week with Judy Blume saying-
“[I]t's not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is the books that will never be written. The books that will never be read. And all due to the fear of censorship. As always, young readers will be the real losers.”
Thanks to Mysanal for the link.
It's just an interesting dichotomy.
I wonder if the ALA will be willing to stand up against the nearly certain influx of Islamic based book complaints the way they do to Christians and others....
