Today marks the beginning of Banned Books Week for 2012. Since the time of the first books enemies of freedom have sought to have many banned or destroyed as they attempt to limit and control the spread of ideas and dictate what people can think. A sign of a civilised society is its ability to accept a diversity of thought and belief, even when some find some of the concepts offensive. It's our duty as defenders of freedom of thought to fight the narrow minded bigots who try so hard to impose their values and 'morals' on the rest of society.
