Libraries and Socialism

As long as you’re not irony or sarcasm challenged, you may enjoy this column from the San Francisco Chronicle:
The menace of the public option
M.C. Blakeman
Saturday, September 19, 2009
“Of all the current assaults on our noble republic, perhaps none is more dangerous than the public option – specifically, the public library option.
For far too long, this menace has undermined the very foundations of our economy. While companies like Amazon and Barnes & Noble struggle valiantly each day to sell books, these communistic cabals known as libraries undercut the hard work of good corporate citizens by letting people read their books for free.”

  1. Hey Stephen, great post.
    I love the article. Blakeman is right, we should burn our library cards. We should burn all books too. Like Ray Bradbury tells us to do in his famous but misunderstood novel. Maybe we can make our beloved cars run on books (or over books, if the gasoline gods don’t like it). It would be heaven.
