TheVoiceOfJoyce. Thankfully, I grew up in an era when my book reading wasn’t censored. Sure, some books, like Lady Chatterly’s Lover were forbidden by my parents, for its sexual references. That didn’t stop friends from buying it for me, when I was 13. Today, Stalin would be proud of the States , controlling the reading of books. He would have said, “education is a weapon, it’s effects are felt by whoever controls it!” Another favorite quote of Stalin’s, was, “Ideas are more powerful than guns. We wouldn’t give our enemies guns, why would we give them ideas? “ Are some states, enthralled with Stalin’s philosophy? Makes me wonder. Why the censorship? Why are parents being complicit in restricting their children’s ideas?
