Because we’re all in this together, and everything matters! Burning books destroys years of thought of evidence, it destroys history!
Where I’m from, Iowa, as a kid, there was a family that wanted me to destroy my Kiss Alblum collection. Said they’d give me 50$ if I would let them burn them for me! Also we forget that religious people, really religious people would love to burn books that help people to learn on their own, which is a sin. All should be learned from God… also… there are many older books on physiology and older books on the founders of different communities that hold clues to whom runs things behind the curtain of OZ.
Morally or ethically, tis neither here nor there, it just dumb unless you prefer that nobody come to the absolute truth of the way things are. Because we all matter and we’re all connected through time, everything matters. Unless it’s PORN, Burn that shit! Other wise it’s information, a tiny part of our puzzling lives on this planet!
