banned books - it's the beginning of the end
John Bellamy Comments below
I am on many News Groups around the world and do not just trust any one News Outlets to give me the current state of the world as even the BBC these days is extremely bigoted on how they report the news and it simply is one sided.
So imagine learning how certain states within the USA are trying to ban books - books for education, books that enlighten and help and books that teach of alternatives. So by banning these books and disallowing teachers even to speak of them or state what they said, stifles growth and enables these children to grow to be bigots - uneducated bigots. Imagine being a middle school history teacher and not being allowed to discuss "systemic racism" while teaching about slavery. This is just one of many restrictions on education that state lawmakers across the country are trying to make happen right now.
Classroom censorship bills and statewide campaigns to remove books from schools and public libraries – predominantly by and about communities of color, LGBTQ people, and other marginalized groups – are being fast-tracked in multiple states from Texas to Idaho.
The ACLU is meeting this surge of censorship with new litigation and fierce advocacy. We've already filed lawsuits in Oklahoma and New Hampshire, challenging these statewide classroom censorship bans. We won't stop fighting until students' rights to free speech and equitable education are fully protected but we need you with us.
Help make sure that ACLU teams have the resources we need to launch a tireless and relentless defense of freedom throughout this critical election year.
John, so far in 2022 alone, state legislatures have introduced 71 new bills across 22 states that restrict discussions about race and gender in schools, many of which explicitly target K-12.
That would be dangerous enough, but opponents of civil liberties are also advancing racially-motivated voter suppression proposals, restricting access to abortion, and waging cruel and dangerous campaigns to ban transgender youth from sports and gender-affirming, life-saving health care.
With lawyers in all 50 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico, the ACLU has demonstrated time and time again the powerful impact we can have when we react quickly and decisively to escalating threats in the states. But, with new challenges emerging every day, we urgently need the support of members like you.
At the ACLU, we believe that freedom of expression is the foundation of a vibrant democracy. Without it, other fundamental rights, like the right to vote, would wither away.
That's why, throughout our history, we've gone to court to protect the freedom of speech and the right to make up your own mind. And, with your support today, we'll keep fighting for this fundamental right as hard as it takes, for as long as it takes.

I think we have been here before, with The Book Burning in history and the few who wish to limit what the rest of us read and learn out of their own fear we may oppose them with a different view of life, death and the universe and if ever a country was turning into a dictatorial state where education was limited to keep the people controllable, and where people are only allowed certain truths so to keep them - again - controllable, then we are destined for an appalling future and where free will and free speech are under threat and we will soon be under a police state if this continues. Is this China. Is it Russia. Is it Saudi Arabia, No it is none of these - It is 'The Leader of the Free World.' This is the United States of America WHAT A FUCKING JOKE THAT IS ...
