Book Burning USA

So here we are well into the 21st century and the reactionary book burners are at it again. Just this week, some self-appointed guardians of American Aryan youth in the state of Virginia have called for removing books from schools and burning them in a public orgy of Maga-mayhem. “The horrific history of exterminating books, sometimes exterminating the authors at the same time, is as much a part of current history as it was of earlier times,” Haig Bosmajian writes in his book, also entitled Burning Books. “Century after century, the book burners have lit the fearful, powerful, magical fire to reduce to ashes the fearful, powerful, magical books.”
