  • Manifesto by Ellen HopkinsTo you zealots and bigots and falsepatriots who live in fear of discourse.You screamers and banners and burnerswho would force booksoff shelves in your brand nameof greater good.
  • Manifesto by Ellen HopkinsYou say youre afraid for children,innocents ripe for corruptionby perversion or sorcery on the page.But sticks and stones do breakbones, and ignorance is no armor.You do not speak for me,and will not deny my kids magicin favor of miracles.
  • Manifesto by Ellen HopkinsYou say youre afraid for America,the red, white, and blue corrodedby terrorists, socialists, the sexuallyconfused. But we are a vast quiltof patchwork cultures and multi-genderedidentities. You cannot speak for thosewhose ancestors braved different seas.
  • Manifesto by Ellen HopkinsYou say youre afraid for God,the living word eroded by Muhammedand Darwin and Magdalene.But the omnipotent sculptor of heavenand earth designed intelligence.Surely you dare not speakfor the father, who openshis arms to all.
  • Manifesto by Ellen HopkinsA word to the unwise.Torch every book.Char every page.Burn every word to ash.Ideas are incombustible.And therein lies your real fear.
