The Problem with Banning Books by Elliot

People banning books is a problem in society. The first reason they shouldn’t be banned, is because it goes against the first amendment. It goes against the authors freedom of speech. It can also go against the freedom of the press saying that certain issues can’t be talked about. The second reason they shouldn’t be banned, is because it is self-centered. Banning books affects more people than just the person who bans it, it stops other people who may want to read that book. Other people have intellectual freedom, so they can read about whatever they choose. The third reason, is because it stops certain issues from being talked about. People ban books because they talk about controversial subjects they might not agree with. It can stop some people from learning about problems going on in society. Overall, banning books is wrong and if you don’t like certain books you can just ignore them.
