Fahrenheit 451 - 2016 Version

Skip the somewhat ignorant comment about "right-wing bigots" in this article (has the author never heard of Left-wing bigots?) and read how the new book burners ply their trade:

Anyone who isn't concerned about this, should be.

Because one day they're going to demand other books to be "disappeared".  Like maybe your St Andrew Missal?

Shades of Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451".

It's their usual MO.
How many people know about the real origin of the 1917 "revolution" and the real leaders of all the comunist countries ? (By the way, those countries are now being run again by the same people, excluding Russia)
How many people know about the puppeteers of the "French" "revolution" ? About the atrocities in Vendee ?
Almost all erased.
Maps erased. Documents destroyed. History twisted (still is). People tortured to forget who they are (this is also in fashion).
John 8:44: “Ye are of your father the Devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him."

This is the very reason why I and others collect particular books and build our own libraries. Truth WILL be made available to those who seek it.

Well said, and a fine idea. We might end up like Bradbury's "book people"!


Alas, most people don't want to know about these things. A simple glance at some of the newer Catholic blogs that have popped up illustrate that point. Something called "Mahound" is one example of this blindness, a blindness we can hope will only be temporary. Another is "The Bear", who with his tiresome third-person shtick is rapidly becoming "The Bore".
