Burning Books
 
# 1 : Monday 14-10-2013 @ 21:13
 
 
On my way to work today I passed through a nearby green and discovered a big bundle of books, at least 12, burnt by a near tree.

The idea of burning a book, any book, seems so bizzare and alien to me.

So in part I've spent the day trying to figure out a book that I'd burn, if I had to. Still cant land on one. What about you? What would you choose, and why?

Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler. Nazi anti-semitic racist rubbish.

I actually thought about that but couldnt burn Mein Kampf (which is terribly boring by the way) I think we need such things as a reminder and safe guard - even if people continue to twist it more.

Remember seeing Mein Kampf for sale in Easons in the 70's it was wrapped in a clear plastic to prevent anyone from browsing through its pages - deffo not a book to burn but one to learn from

hmmm - I'm not sure if I would burn any unless they were extreme racism or homophobia or religious discrimination or disablist or mysoginist/mysandrist and were actually putting lives in danger.

I can't think of any proper book I would burn. Even crap like PS I Love You has a place in the world. The only book I might burn would be one of my school text books for a subject I hated. Irish, most likely.

Dort wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man auch am Ende Menschen.

(Where they have burned books, they will end in burning human beings)

For me burning books would be much more contemptible than burning a flag

Burning shit in general (except for waste maybe) is a bit stupid isn't it?

There's some people who have a problem with burning waste too.
