1. Censorship is evil: it is an intrusion on freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and banning books is academic and moral neglect
2. Books must be protected at all costs: they cannot be changed, amended, rated with labels, stripped or watered down, or sampled. They must be preserved as a whole to protect the moral integrity of both art and artist.
3. A government that bans books is a fascist or totalitarian regime whose citizens must band together, rebel, and preserve knowledge and academic freedom.
4. Nuclear war threatens to destroy the planet. The only thing worse than a world without books is a world burned to ashes by nuclear warfare. In the 1950s, nuclear holocaust was a real threat to global annihilation.
