All of the people living in the United States and other free countries are very lucky people. In Russia a couple of Orwell's books were banned. The government is telling people what books they can and cannot read. This is not freedom and it is not right. Many of the Russian people accept this, however, because that is how they were taught, and in effect brainwashed. In our country we complain about many things such as high prices, low pay, and heavy taxes. But we have something more valuable than money. We have freedom to think what we will and read what we want.
