So, I’m thinking of building a small bonfire in my backyard. I’ll start with copies of the Qur’an, the King James Bibles and the Torah. A few copies of the Tao Te Ching and Bhagavad Gita, too. Then, just to shake things up, a copy of Darwin’s On The Origin Of Species and Hawking’s A Brief History Of Time. Maybe the complete works of Aristotle and Shakespeare for good measure. Oh, then just for ironic humor, Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451.
I’ll roast marshmallows. Mmmm… maybe even make s’mores!
We’re bigger than this, people. We’re better than this. All of us. Everyone needs to stop acting like unruly, reactionary children. It’s the 21st century; stop disappointing me.
