I wouldn't complain about this. It's likely to backfire.

When children learn the books have been banned, they'll want to read them, and they'll do it with interest and gusto rather than the plodding apathy of someone being forced to read a book.

They'll have to ban them from the library, too, if they want this not to backfire.


It seems our public school's method of preventing that is to so dumb down reading instruction that everything is a small "sound bite" and no one has the skill set to keep up with sustained silent reading.  It is unlikely that those students will be able to comprehend the meanings of those novels.

The US school system is fukked up by the political right and Christians. You're going to end up with lots of children not being able to get a decent education because of your greed that tells you that you have a right to keep all your money.

And I find it just fukking delightful because you're getting what you all deserve.
