Banned Books Similar to the 2012 Election

Thirty-three days and counting until we don’t have to listen/read any more about political lies, dramatically proposed plans to save our country or talk about our nations 47%.  Oh, how the media’s power of persuasion can corrupt a person’s individual thought.

With all the political talk, do you find that we forget to find the lessons of today and banter on a side of the opinion we find most fit?  Isn’t there always something to learn?

Made me think politics and this book list are similarly tied.  We complain today, saying “this just isn’t right, we need this, we can’t live with that” when, in the future, looking back, we’ll probably praise the work being done.  Take a look at the 10 Most Commonly Banned Books.  How interesting that “To Kill A Mockingbird, Of Mice and Men, and Catch 22” all fall under the list.

What’s blinding today could be what we study in twenty years.
