Against Banned Books (Please Spread This Pic & The Text)

Newer Older

Book Banning is such an awful thing,... parents who want to care for their kids challenge books and then... they perhaps ar banned... Banned Book week is a great celebration... celebrate freedom of speech and press is what they want to say... and these parents who "care" for their kids i cant understand them... they let them watch tvtvtv and play violent videogames but books shall be difficult? weird ^^

“Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.” — Benjamin Franklin

“Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such Thing as Wisdom; and no such Thing as publick Liberty, without Freedom of Speech.” — Benjamin Franklin

“Restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions. It is the one un-American act that could most easily defeat us." — Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas

    Sorry, but as a photo, notwithstanding the message, this is terribly boring.

    message is good, but it loses something for me because it's not real (must be the ex-journalist in me) T3+Z1=4

    Picture of a sign. This shows no originality to me. Simply trying to pass along a message.

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
    This is the FIRST line of the first Amendment..the first banned book was the BIBLE...Let's stop this unconstitutional ban!

    I just wanted to let you know that I used this picture for my blog, pirathecaire.com. As you can see if you visit pirathecaire, it is a French blog, so if my comment is not clear, blame it on my poor English. ;) For your information, as you may not read French, pirathecaire is a blog about librarianship.

    On my blog, if you roll over your picture, you will be able to read the «title» of the picture. I use a standard phrasing for each CC picture I put on my blog, that could be translated by something like «Picture created by [your name] under a Creative Commons [type of your license] license.» Your picture is also linked to its page on your flickr gallery, so the readers can track it back to you.

    Thank you!

    I also featured it on my blog.
    I came across it by (happy) accident when I was writing on the subject of book banning. Seriously thank you!
