Welcome to Gaia! ::

Let's say the government was introducing a new law regulation banning books more than 50 years old.
How would you feel about this?
Discuss.
Has this actually happened..?
Lament that there are no longer any intellectually and emotionally challenging books to read.
Quite pleased, since that would include every religious text ever written.

It's bad enough this generation is getting dumber with every passing birth. Take the amazing classics out of Literature and History, and you get a recipe for disaster.

And imagine how the churches might react. *Shudder*

While I seem to be one of the few who actually believes that there are some good, thought-provoking books that have been published within the last fifty years, I'd still be upset about the blatant censorship, and about the loss of some of my favorites, like Animal Farm, published in 1945. Boxer deserves to be memorialized forever. *sniffle* Why'd you have to break your leg, Boxer? You shouldn't have worked so hard!

What would they do, go from house to house confiscating people's libraries of antique books? ******** them!

You're not a very intelligent person, are you? You'd give up every historic record and every book of science and progress all to take a potshot at religion?
