Would you be happy living in a world where they ban fiction?

No. I don't want to be part of a world that bans stuff I like. I'll fight it until my dying breath.

In a world without fiction, living wouldn't be worth it, period.

Hell no. It's already hard enough to be happy WITH fiction. Reality is cruel and boring. Not only that but there would be absolutely no good anime, games, or manga. I'd rather die. In a world like that I'm sure there would be countless riots from content creators and their millions of fans though. The stupid government that thought banning fiction would be a good idea would be overthrown faster than the speed of light.

With the way the world is going? Someone might try it one day.

It'd be horrible and devasting to me if they banned fiction. Everyone needs to let loose.

aren't most things fiction to begin with? as long as there is a perception of real world events, people will see things differently. while one can claim a statement to be impossible and have it accepted by most of society, who is to say for that one person who finds truth in it, that one out of a million. if you cannot collect from that unknown you once called fiction, how can progression occur? wouldn't it be fair to say each action taken throughout life can be considered a belief both our body and mind have dedicated themselves under in order to work (somewhat) properly?

such attempts may try to find the hope in absolution, but as long as one is within the medium they are observing, it sounds rather difficult to claim with a straight conscious that omniscience is within reach.

"They say there are strangers who threaten us
In our immigrants and infidels
They say there is strangeness too dangerous
In our theaters and bookstore shelves
That those who know what's best for us
Must rise and save us from ourselves

Quick to judge
Quick to anger
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear walk hand in hand..."
- Witch Hunt by Rush

The song always said it all for me, censorship is wrong in all shapes and forms. The banning of fiction would take away another freedom and remove yet another creative avenue for individuality. When I was a child the school board gave us a banned list of books that if we got caught reading at school or on off-time we'd be expelled. Tom Sawyer, Lord of the Flies and Animal Farm were all on that list. I've read and enjoyed them all. Following that we had Tipper Gore (Al's biggest failure) and her campaign to ban/censor rock music. Luckily she failed but who knows what'll come next. The sad part is a ban on fiction wouldn't be surprising at all as the next step in the insane chain.
