I owe my new blogging buddy, Writing Like Crazy a huge thank you for choosing me to do this challenge.How fun!!! 😀

I know I’m really supposed to find one quote per day….but I found two instead. O:)

Have we not seen this with both the Nazis and within terrorism? Interestingly enough, Heine’s books were burned during the Nazi’s campaign to erase un-german philosophy.

 

On a related note….

What is a dictatorial government’s first line of defense? A lot of the times, it’s ignorance. The public must not be able to think for themselves but instead be told what to think. Why do you think North Korea has banned the classics and other books from the West? What would have happened if Heine’s quote would have been found in Nazi Germany? Horror upon horrors: would it have been taken seriously? Would someone have actually started thinking? OOOOH, scary!!! It’s simple: read a book, stop a dictator. 😉

 

Now, the hardest decision of the day: who to tag?

A Glimpse of Starlight

Read Nothing Yet

The Clipped Butterfly

    1. Thank you so much!
      Oh my word, YES!! Read it for bookclub! It’s perfect for generating deep discussions.
      I thought about Liesel during and after writing this post. How many more people in this world are like her? They strive for knowledge, yet the books are not given them because their dictatorial governments are afraid of what they contain. What we can do to change that?
