Best censorship is self-censorship

30 October 1991


In this rebuttal to Suzanne Gallagher’s opinion piece, Bernard M Craven Jr states that no matter if it is the government removing books or parents it is still censorship. He states out of the all the books she mentioned thirteen of them were banned for occult reasons. He then goes on to say that that our society seems to think that the first amendment right of religion doesn’t apply to satanical religions. He also states that our society tends to oppose things that we don’t understand. Craven states that the best kind of censorship is self-censorship and that if parents are truly worried about what their children are reading then they need to pay attention to what their child is actually reading, not just what they access to.
