CENSORSHIP
[ Also see Free Speech Freedom Press Speech Theatre ]

I thought the work would be very innocent, and one which might be confined to the reason of any man; not likely to be much read if let alone, but, if persecuted, it will be vindication of his rights to buy, and to read what he pleases.
      - Thomas Jefferson

Satires which the censor can understand are justly forbidden.
      - Karl Kraus

Censorship, like charity, should begin at home, but unlike charity, it should end there.
      - Clare Boothe Luce

If in other lands the press and books and literature of all kinds are censored, we must redouble our efforts here to keep them free.
      - Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books that nobody reads.
      - George Bernard Shaw

All censorships exist to prevent anyone from challenging current conceptions and existing institutions. All progress is initiated by challenging current conceptions, and executed by supplanting existing institutions. Consequently, the first condition of progress is the removal of all censorships. There is the whole case against censorships in a nutshell.
      - George Bernard Shaw,
        Mrs. Warren's Profession

Censorship reflects a society's lack of confidence in itself.
      - Justice Potter Stewart

Damn all expurgated books, the dirtiest book of all is the expurgated book.
      - Walt Whitman
