A Warning for Kindle Users

Neo-Luddite that I am (I haven’t owned a TV for over 20 years), I greeted the arrival of Kindles and their ilk with great suspicion. Now, courtesy of an article which appeared on the website of Campaign for America’s Future, I’ve been vindicated. The warning:

“At this rate, the “Firemen” in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 will soon be obsolete. So will Bloomberg’s batallions. Soon a faceless bureaucrat or corporate lackey will be able to destroy every single copy of any “unauthorized” book – instantly, simultaneously, and permanently – with a single electronic command.”

If you are interested in reading the entire article, click on the link above. I’m going to go read a book, thank you. A real book, not an ersatz one.
