Book burners

15 Jan

I guess in the world that we live in today, burning a few “unapproved” books is fairly unimportant.

Russian authorities have burned more than 50 books and pulled more than 500 other volumes from college libraries on the grounds they contain sentiments “alien to Russian ideology.”

I just can’t help but think that those who attempt revise, erase, and sanitize, History are doomed to fail. You can take down monuments, burn books, and re-spin, History as much as you like but, sooner or later, the truth will come out.

My suggestion to Russia and others of that ilk is not burning books but writing more. Let’s have a dialogue. To me it seems that hiding History is the only argument of a limited mind.
