    Burning Books is it Bad news?

    Hitler Burned tons of books on Jewish Communism, this is how he fixed Germany with National Socialism by getting rid of the Jewish Communism poison.

    But Romans and Christians Burned Library of Alexander because they were scarred of the Hermetic Mysteries getting out and Society knowing the truth of the world.

    Little History for you...and yes the Burning books continues the Zionists will burn books and libraries that tell the truth of WWII.

    The CIA has burned tons of Books and Oil Companies Burned all there bad reviews and spill accounts so that they won't be held accountable, actually they blew up whole building that's taking it to another level!

    Burning books that contain opinions you don't agree with is bad news, yes. Even if the opinions expressed within run contrary to the morays of the moment.

    For example, I read in Sweden that they are destroying copies of Pipi Longstocking that contain an outdated racial slur. Okay, let's follow that logic and, what?, destroy the works of Mark Twain? We need to use history as context when looking at past ideas. We cannot just destroy words we don't like.
