Banned Books Argument Violation of rights, censorship, and banned books. These horrible events occur daily in many countries, not just in America. Many of the events involve public libraries, parents, and students. Although the opponent says they are doing the right thing by banning books for their children’s future, those children still need to know about real life experiences.(counterclaim). Something has to be done to protect everyone’s rights and everyone’s books they love to read. Resources show everyone that books are banned, but not from bookstores or from your homes. The only places books get banned are public libraries, so in which books aren’t banned from bookstores or people’s homes. Since banning books is a violation of everyone’s rights, everyone needs to end the banning of books(claim). Everyone knows that parents are just trying to protect their kids minds from bad ideas or information. However in current studies parents are the most likely group to ban books due to them wanting their children’s minds to stay unadulterated(evidence 1). There is a article that defends this concept. The article is called,” Banning books: a parents job?” written by Lain Ehmann. Ehmann feels that there needs to be a line drawn on what her kids read. Which is a question every parent asks about their kids. Ehmann knows that she can’t censor everything her kids read or see. But she still wants to take a step by step on letting her kids at the right age learn what they need to know. Ehmann made a point that she decides when her kids are ready for something. Because,” kids didn’t dress themselves at birth, choose their own food, or bedtimes, and choose after-school activities.”(evidence2).Ehmann knows she needs to be there for her kids, until they can decide for themselves. The article is a good source on why parents ban books. However…it is wrong to ban books because it is a violation of everyone’s rights. According to sources banning books is a violation of the first amendment. Why is that so well because, other people are getting to decide what everyone reads. Also people are taking books off the shelf’s of libraries so people are not able to read the book they banned. There is this article that defends the concept that banning books is a violation of everyone’s rights. The article is called,” Banned books week: defending our freedom to read.” written by Gordon T. Belt. What the article talks about is the history of banning books. In the article there is something said by Thomas Jefferson that defends the concept really well. “In coming to de B’ecourt’s defense Jefferson eloquently stated,” I am really mortified to be told that, in the United States of America, a fact like this can become a subject of inquiry, and of criminal inquiry to, as an offence against religion; that a question about the sale of a book can be carried before the civil magistrate.” Jefferson had said that because American authorities claimed that de B’ecourt’s book contained blasphemous material.” Why the sentence defends the concept so well is because as Americans are idea of a great country is freedom. But Americans seem to ignore that idea by banning books. Clearly with what the amendment says, banning books needs to be a big concern of America’s. In conclusion, banning books is wrong because people have the right to read whatever they want. The only time I agree with banning books is if the person reading it, decides she or he wants to do something bad she or he learned in that book. Otherwise if someone read a book and turned out fine after that, than there should be no reason to ban the book. Works Cited: MLA: "Should Certain Books Be Banned from Libraries?"
