Book Bans

Hello. Good afternoon, everyone. Happy Tuesday. I wanted to talk for a minute or two about a subject that's been bothering me for several weeks now. That subject is book banning. First and foremost, in the United States, we do not ban books. It's that simple. We have the freedom, under a number of amendments, to read

Hey, Mark, all of your points are so strong and so real, and just to have them condensed into this one swell, I really appreciate there have been more conversations on Swell about the book banning, and everyone's feeling pretty bummed about it, but you really crystallize it for us. And we have to take this to the ballot box, obviously, but between now and then, there's a lot of damage that can be done

They are bang books because they do not want you to have the knowledge. They want to maintain control. They do not want the knowledge to get out. They don't want to be figured out. They don't want their cars to be pulled. So to limit the itch, you limit the basic what's the word I want to use? You limit the knowledge. You limit the power to figure out life. You limit the power to succeed in life
