Great result, from a hurried shoot you say? I love the visual Irony I get from 'son of man' and the subject matter. Not sure if all see the way I do, however you see this, it works.

Haha. Nice "???" I know what "the son of man" is, in small letters... and I guess Son of Man means something like Christ? Then again, judging by that picture, I guess it's a book too? I don't know. That's why I was asking, so you could educate me. :)

I've never thrown away any book. While I wouldn't sooner die than throw one away, I'd nevertheless be extremely reluctant to. Books are so beautiful. I forget the name of the fellow who invented the printing press but we owe him a lot. ^^

Probably the place where book-banning is the most severe is in North Korea. Citizens - or perhaps I should say 'subjects' - are not permitted to read anything that the North Korean government hasn't okayed, on the somewhat difficult-to-comprehend ground that the people who read that material will become 'corrupted'. Their Dear Leader Kim Jong-Il has an extensive cult of personality, and when you have a cult of personality, it's very important to keep it intact. Hitler and Stalin were only all too aware of this, and thuggishly burned countless 'dissident' books on vast pyres.

Still, we've advanced quite a lot in the past few centuries. We don't burn authors of controversial books (or anyone else) at the stake as witches; we're at a point our forefathers probably thought impossible to attain. Maybe future generations will arrive at a point most of us consider impossible to attain: a tolerance of any book, the all-embracing idea that we ought to be allowed to write and to publish whatever we please. Freedom of speech consists of having the right to dissent, and to be given the marvellous opportunity not only of thinking for yourself, but of attempting to justify and defend your views. Which is far better than, as I say, thuggishly burning books.

^^

I think Guttenberg invented the first press for mass-production and yes, Hitler and Stalin were the modern ones I was alluding too.....but people in that paranoid psychotic state fear knowledge through education.

I've looked it up. Johannes Gutenberg is the name of the fellow.

I can't say anything about the state of the mental health of Hitler or Stalin (though I doubt the latter was psychotic). I think Kim Jong-Il certainly is paranoid. Again, not psychotic. Overemotional, yes, paranoid, yes; but foreign dignatories who have spoken to him (e.g. Madeleine Allbright, Albright, or whatever she's called) say that he knows perfectly well what he's doing.

Wow, brilliant. I'm the sort of person who would be interested to know which books you had in there.

Did you hand select the books, or just tossed down a bunch of 'em?
