One can draw conclusions based on what they read, but that person may never prevent others from reading that information.
One can warn others about the impacts of information, but that person should respect the right to read of others.
In a five-paragraph essay, take a position for or against banning this novel.
John Steinbeck, one of the greatest writers in the American history who won the 1962 Nobel Prize, understood the desperate need of reading of the migrant workers, so he wrote Of Mice and Men in 1937 with the aspiration to tell the world about American society during the Great Depression.
After all, Of Mice and Men teaches the world precious lessons about life, sticking to dreams, and never giving up.
Another powerful proof that proves banning Of Mice and Men was such an inappropriate action is the novel illustrates true history about the Great Depression.
In Of Mice and Men, Crooks is the only black man on the ranch.
He is secluded from workers; he cannot play or talk to anyone, because “they say [he stinks]” (Steinbeck 68).
If authorities decide what Americans may or may not read, the United States will become a dystopia, where citizens have no freedom except to comply to the leaders.
Of course, no one wants that to happen, not when the Fathers had sacrificed themselves for the freedom of their children, schools should not ban Of Mice and Men, for it is a powerful book that helps fix the society.
