"But once a culture develops sufficiently to become skeptical,
the idea of censorship becomes less attractive.
To suppress a book or a picture or a sculpture or a play or a film
is a terrible act of aggression against the artist who created it.
This is a miming of capital punishment;
it destroys the life that has been emanated by a life."
