I'm not interested in censorship. I like the First Amendment very much. Henry Rollins
Submitting to censorship is to enter the seductive world of 'The Giver': the world where there are no bad words and no bad deeds. But it is also the world where choice has been taken away and reality distorted. And that is the most dangerous world of all. Lois Lowry
We get on the bandwagon in all sorts of ways - you know minor ways and major ways - like what you've just encountered which isn't censorship exactly, it was something sort of uglier in a way. Kathy Acker
Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books that nobody reads. George Bernard Shaw
The prime goal of censorship is to promote ignorance, whether it is done via lying and bowdlerized school texts or by attacking individual books. Felice Picano
