This article begins in a fascinating manner, where an individual who is staunchly against censorship admits that a book disturbed her enough that she had to carefully consider her opinions. The book in question almost seems to romanticize/justify a suicide.
Ultimately she realized that pulling the book would not end the behavior. The behavior was a result of a deeper question/problem that needed to be addressed. Banning books, restricting access, etc. are just band-aids; short term solutions that allow us to ignore the “Gaping wounds” in a community.
I cannot agree more. There are so many problems, mostly in my opinion, due to a sense of entitlement and lack of communal feeling, that society is broken right now.
