Mer om censur, denna gången bokcensur!

Mina partikamrater Jens Odsvall, Nicklas Starow och Amanda Brihed har bloggat om förbjudna och censurerade böcker idag.  Det är nämligen en hel radda böcker som censurerats i demokratiska länder som USA, Australien och Kanada under de sista hundra åren. För fastän det kan vara svårt att tro för en del, så är USA nog det västland som har strängast bokcensur i skolor och liknande.Av såväl politiska som ”sexualfientliga” skäl…

Censur Amanda Brihed skriver:

Bland de författare som ofta ifrågasätts och som ofta lever under censurhot och bokbålsterror i staterna går det att finna följande namn, varav ett par stycken säkert är kända även bland oss vanliga dödliga svenskar:

  • Neil Gaiman
  • F. Scott Fitzgerald (The Great Gatsby)
  • James Joyce
  • Madonna
  • William S. Burroughs
  • John Knowles
  • William Styron (Sophie’s Choice)
  • Margaret Mitchell (Gone With the Wind)
  • William Faulkner
  • Ernest Hemingway
  • William Golding (Lord of the Flies)
  • J.R.R. Tolkien (Lord of the Rings)
  • Upton Sinclair
  • Truman Capote
  • D.H. Lawrence
  • Jack London
  • George Orwell
  • Mark Twain (The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, m.fl.)
  • J.K. Rowling (Harry Potter)
  • Anne Rice
  • Toni Morrison (Beloved, m.fl.)
  • Judy Blume (Forever / Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret)
  • Alice Walker (The Color Purple)
  • Maurice Sendak
  • Salman Rushdie
  • Henry Miller
  • Norman Mailer
  • Aldous Huxley (Brave New World)
  • David Guterson (Snow Falling on Cedars)

  • Harper Lee (To Kill A Mockingbird)
  • Robert Cormier (We All Fall Down)
  • John Steinbeck (Of Mice and Men, m.fl.)
  • Ray Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451)

  • Patricia McCormick (Cut)
  • Katherine Paterson (Bridge To Terabithia)
  • J.D. Salinger (Catcher in the Rye)
  • Kurt Vonnegut
Och så vidare.

Denna bokcensur bör man ha i åtanke när man hör talas om att politiker vill censurera och kontrollera internet ännu mer än idag, och när man hör rop skalla om att Lars Vilks borde förbjudas teckna.

Jag hittade en sida med skrämmande fakta om försök att förbjuda böcker som de ovan.Jag citerar den sidan i sin helhet här. Allom till varnagel!

15 tankar om “Mer om censur, denna gången bokcensur!

  1. Antingen gör man en lista över böcker som blivit stoppade i så kallade demokratier säg tex. de senaste femtio åren ,
    eller så gör man en lista ”Blir lång!” över allastoppade böcker i hela Europa och Nordamerika eller varför inte i hela Världende senaste 100 åren och då finner vi att i en del av dessa 100 år har rätt så många av dessa länder inte varit demokratier i egentlig mening och vissa är det fortfarande inte!
    Listan som här presenteras anser jag vara en salig röra !
    Italien och Tyskland före andra världskriget men inte t.ex DDR ?!? Jugoslavien och Turkiet men inte Spanien under Franco-tiden ?!? Sydafrika och Arabemiratet och Ryssland bara i en bisats !!!
    och vart tog restenav världen tex Asien vägen ?!?
    Att speciellt Amerikanska sydstats skolor är som de är det vet vi ändå och att extremkristna i hela USA gnäller på det mesta som inte överensstämmer med vad de tycker ,det vet vi också !
    En lista som absolut inte uppfyller
    Liberaldemokratiska krav !!!

  2. Bloggar inte,har inte tid för dylikt.
    Håller i och för sig med M.Gajditza,vist framgår poängen men det fins egentligen en mycket alvarligare sak som debatteras i USA vad gäller böcker och det är att gå in och ändra i en författares text för att anpassa den till tidsandan ?!?
    Ett exempel:Det fins starka krafter i USA som vill ändra i Mark Twain’s böcker Tom Sawyer och Huckleberry Finn.
    Det man vill ta bort är ordet Nigger som ju inte är gångbart i dag men som enligt mig speglar tidsandan och språkbruket i USA på 1870 talet.
    Om man börjar göra detta vad blir då nästa steg ?!?
    I en film som är så ny som från slutet av 70 talet säger en vit Sydafrikan , ”Kaffer” till en svart hmmm,färgad man,
    det är inte heller gångbart i dag !

  3. Borde också tillägga att vi vet ju alla hur ”nojiga” de är i USA och även tex. i en del katolska länder vad gäller innehåll som är av sexuell natur !!!
    Tycker vi ska vara glada så länge vi har högre i tak !

  4. Det är väl det vi måste ifrågasätta då och då – har vi verkligen så högt i tak som vi skulle vilja ha?

    Den här boklistan är förstås helt underbar, och känns lite som en ”att läsa-lista”. Jag har läst ett stort antal av dessa böcker, många under min barn- och ungdom, och det är väl kanske därför jag är en så fördärvad och degenererad liberal som jag är…

  5. Den här Walter Metzler som kommenterar här förstår jag mig inte på.

    Han levererar en drapa om hur dålig den här listan är, men påpekar också att han inte har tid för sånt som att blogga.

    Alltså – en typisk gnällröv som gärna klagar på andras arbete, men som inte vill lägga två strån i kors för att göra något vettigt själv.


  6. Det finns andra listor. Jag tyckte att just denna var intressant eftersom de angav SKÄLEN till att en del böcker blivit förbjudna eller kritiserade.

    Dåliga? Nja, där är nog smaken som baken. För dig kanske! fast D.H. Lawrence inte är min favorit precis måste jag ju erkänna att det finns folk som gillar honom och anser han är en stor författare.

    Poängen är inte att detta är böcker som inte faller dig på läppen Walter. Poängen är att detta är känd och respekterad litteratur som censurerats.

    Och det finns liknande listor med Astrid Lindgren och Huckelbery Finn, om du bara letar!


  7. Att nazisterna och mullorna nämns ibland är givetvis för att göra en poäng för de inhemska amerikanska censurivrarna, att de gör som mullor och nazzar. Tänk på att denna lista använts och användes i USA.

  8. Jag tycker nog att man kan gå in på statistik från en eller ett par specifika nationer om det är det man också utger sig för att göra. Visst skulle det vara kul att försöka få reda på vilka böcker som är censurerade i säg Vitryssland, Metzler, men vill du försöka kvittera ut dem då? Far du till Minsk och begär ut dem av Lukasjenka? Vore litet intressant att se om du lyckas.

    Pointen med detta, som du kan läsa mer om på min blogg (länkad här ovan) är att visa att vi inte är så fantastiska själva här i väst som vi gärna tror att vi är.

    Det är självklart så att amerikansk moral spelar in och att det är en stor fet orsak till att det ser ut som det gör rörande censureringsförsök. Visst vill man ändra i Huckleberry Finn, men man har även skrivit om fantasyböcker skrivna av David Eddings och J.K. Rowling för att de ska passa bättre för obildade amerikanska ungar. Exempelvis. Och tagit fram mer lättlästa versioner (utan sex och blod) av Heinleins Starship Troopers exempelvis. Och självklart är det ett problem. Mer intressant är det att de svenska versionerna av samma böcker förstås bygger på de amerikaniserade böckerna och alltså inte på deras ursprungliga versioner.

    Och det där går igen. Vi har inte ett dugg högre i tak egentligen här hemma i kalla Sverige. Fråga Tina Nevin som skrev boken Fittfakta för ett par år sedan. Du kan få tag i den idag via RFSU och RFSL, bland annat. Den handlar förstås om precis det den låter som. Problemet var att den hade ett för groteskt namn enligt förlagen man ville ge ut den från. Den borde heta lilla snippboken eller lilla boken om det kvinnliga könet, tyckte man. Men det blev än roligare av att det tog 10-15 år innan man alls fick publicera den med verkliga anatomiska beskrivningar som för första gången någonsin visade hur en klitoris ser ut. Vilket är betydligt mycket mer än den där lilla ”knappen” som män så ofta misslyckas med att finna. Faktum var att det tog 10-15 år att få boken godkänd för att ”om världen fick reda på att klitoris är ett jätteorgan på 15 centimeter med skänklar och allt möjligt, så kommer folk förstå att även kvinnor kan njuta av sexuella handlingar och att kvinnor har en egen sexualitet”. Ungefär så gick resonemanget. Jättefarligt!

    Även idag utbildar man fortfarande läkare i Sverige med hjälp av böcker som INTE visar hur en klitoris faktiskt ser ut. Trots att Tina Nevin numera faktiskt får ge ut sin faktabok efter många års kamp och därmed får berätta om den forskning som gjordes för att få fram den informationen. Forskning som var så kontroversiell att forskningen var nära att stoppas då det begav sig. Tina var för övrigt en del av det forskningsteamet ett tag, har jag för mig.

    Och sådär ser det ut rörande den svenska dubbelmoralen kring sexualitet också sedan många herrans år. Vi är inte ett dugg bättre än amerikanerna och det finns ingen som helst anledning att inbilla sig att det ser annorlunda ut här heller. Vi brukar befinna oss alldeles i det amerikanska kölvattnet även då det gäller moral och censur, precis som vi gör när det gäller övervakning. Varför de amerikanska listorna är högaktuella även här.

    För övrigt tycker jag att du skulle testa på att blogga, även du. Det är nyttigt och kul. Men du kanske också får en förståelse för att ett blogginlägg är ett blogginlägg och inte är en vetenskaplig och disputerad uppsats. Det är svårt att hinna med det med något sånär regelbunden basis, trots allt. Det går inte riktigt att komma runt det.

  9. Vad gäller Huckleberry Finn, för övrigt, liksom Tom Sawyer… De har kritiserats även i Sverige för sitt språk. Liksom en hel del annan litteratur. Där har även Hergés Tintin kritiserats och riskerat förbud och utrensningar i Sverige för såväl språk som bilder. Kristna frikyrkor har försökt förbjuda Harry Potter, liksom en eller annan feminist som tycker att kvinnorna framställs som fördummade i de böckerna, osv.

    I såväl USA som i Sverige har Astrid Lindgren kritiserats för att Ronja och Pippi är för starka och farliga tjejer (liksom i Frankrike där Pippi faktiskt skrevs om helt), samt för att det anses degenererande och farligt att läsa sådana saker som Mio min Mio och Bröderna Lejonhjärta. Dock verkar böckerna om Barnen i Bullerbyn fungera för det mesta.
    Och så har förstås filmatiseringarna av Astrid Lindgrens berättelser kritiserats eftersom så många är inspelade på sjuttiotalet då man inte tyckte att det var lika farligt att visa nakna människor. Såväl barn som vuxna. Och det är ju något man absolut inte kan göra i dagens moralpaniska landskap. Nakna vuxna anses snuskigt och upprörande och barnen blir per automatik sexualiserade, vilket jag måste erkänna att jag tycker är ett sjukt sätt att resonera på. Barn måste för guds skull få vara barn och slippa våra översexualiserande puritanska idiotier! Det är hysterin som skapar sexualiseringen och inte tvärtom väldigt ofta, vågar jag påstå och jag förstår inte att vi tillåter det att ske. Men jag har för mig att exempelvis på Åhléns City fick man inte tag på Astrid Lindgrenfilmer redan på 90-talet på grund av att de plockats bort på grund av naket innehåll. Då var det väl nästan mest en naken Tommy Körberg och Ricky Brusch i Ronja man var rädda för, har jag för mig. Och detta var ju långt innan debatten som dök upp i sin nuvarande form och långt innan teapartyrörelsen växt sig så stark som den nu är borta i staterna. Det är mycket rädsla och mycket moral som vi faktiskt skulle kunna klara oss utan i samhället idag. Och utan den hysterin skulle vi kanske kunna få en normalisering kring synen på sexualitet i allmänhet igen, vilket ju vore rätt skönt, tror jag, på väldigt många vis. Men det är nog bara jag.

  10. Jag letar fortfarande bland böcker jag köpt in på antikvariat efter ett tidningsurklipp jag fann i en av böckerna om Astrid Lindgrens böcker när jag bläddrade i antikvariatböckerna. Vid det tillfället skrattade jag åt det och stoppade det tillbaka. Urklippet refererade till en sossetant i en sosseorganisation som där ondgjorde sig över Pippi Långstrump. Jag stoppade tillbaka urklippet i boken efter ett gott skratt, men jag skall fortsätta att hålla ögonen öppna tills jag hittar det. INTELLEKTUELLA STOLLAR!

  11. I believe this is one of the such a lot vital information
    for me. And i’m satisfied studying your article. But should statement on some common issues, The site taste is wonderful, the articles is in point of fact nice : D. Just right process, cheers

  12. With broadband Internet services getting quicker and quicker, it is becoming more beneficial to sign up for broadband telephone services, also recognized as VOIP or Voice more than Web Protocol. If you are considering VOIP phone service, here are the top five factors you should get VOIP services.

    Another truly awesome factor is the get virtual sms number. You can get extra figures that ring the exact same phone, but they are local numbers to any area code you want. So if I reside in Dallas and have family in New York, I can get a local telephone quantity here and there. That way my family members in New York can call a local number (totally free) and speak to me! Vonage charges $4.ninety nine/month for that. I’m not sure about the other people.

    To location a telephone contact from the United States, dial a toll-totally free quantity for accessibility to your AT&T Prepaid contacting card, follow the precepts (1 for the English language, 2 for Spanish) and dial PIN when prompted. And if you need to make a contact within the United States, Canada or the Caribbean, you must enter 1, area code and a telephone number you contact to. Calling to a foreign country you must dial 011, the code of the condition, the code of the city and the hone quantity of a subscriber. When you finish your telephone talk, you can both dangle up or push #, exactly where you’ll get extra possibilities, as adding time to your telephone card or to location some other contact.

    Instead of connecting your telephone to the wall, you connect it to a box either the VOIP company provides or you buy on your own. This is the modem. You need highspeed/broadband web for this. Your modem plugs into your cable/dsl modem and now it can ‘talk’ btwn your telephone and the web.

    In most instances, nevertheless, you can anticipate to invest about $1 for each minute each time you answer your telephone in Spain. If you are on a two-7 days holiday and speak for thirty minutes at any time day, your provider will hit you with a $420 invoice when you arrive back again. Ouch!
