|Censorship & Judy Blume||
Every society has some degree of censorship.
It prevents people from learning about different
experiences and new ideas.
It prevents change.
Government censors can make people afraid to express
their personal ideas or to support certain opinions.
They are afraid of losing their jobs, their position
in society and their credibility.
They even fear losing their lives.
No individual or group should have that much control
Censorship has been described as
"suppression of speech or symbolic
expression for its message."
"CENSORSHIP can cause an imbalance between rich and poor, strong and weak, men and women, humans and other species."
