Special Books Banned for Special Reasons, 3

 

Banned Book of the Day: Wednesday, September 29

 

Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley, was banned in Ireland in 1931, not because the future it describes is unconscionable for its inhuman orderliness, anesthetization and roboticization, but because there is just too much sex in it and promisuity is simply anti-family and anti-religion. No ifs, ands or buts about it.
