No reason to ban a book…

Neil Postman noted that the great fear of George Orwell, as conveyed in his novel 1984, was of a day when there might be those who would ban books. Aldous Huxley’s portrait of the future in Brave New World was more prescient; Huxley feared that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one.
