They are trying to kill physical libraries now so they can rewrite/disappear texts in the virtual libraries.

Few people realize the importance of maintaining written texts.

George orwell understood this a very very long time ago.

The libary near me is always purging classics by white people and anything remotely christian. I've picked up Pilgrim's Progress, The Song of Roland, The End of The Ancient World by Ferdinand Lot (which talks about how letting barbarians into Rome's army - they didn't even speak the same language - was a big part of the fall of Rome) all for like 50 cents each. Not even to re-read them myself necessarily, just to have them around to lend to people or promote any way I can. It's all being replaced with "Bix Nood: wise latinas in da hood" etc. Just fucking vile.

Archivists do! Thank an archivist today! (I know of an archivist who can be thanked if you don't.)

I dated a librarian/archivist. She's alright, but all of her colleagues were deranged leftist cat ladies of the first order. I would cross the street to avoid them, let alone offering thanks.
