I've read the Anarchists' Cookbook, many years ago. A waste of my time. Everything in it I already knew from chemistry or from having to improvise to
It is impossible to remove guns from society. It is impossible to remove explosives from society. It is impossible to remove nuclear weapons from
society. That's just how it is. Once someone develops the knowledge of how to do a thing, and disseminates that knowledge, the knowledge exists and
cannot be removed. Yet, we have fools who will try to do just that by burning and banning books.
Here is the plain hard truth - and a disclaimer. If you are easily frightened, do not read any farther. Go to another thread.
It is possible to take $30, walk into any convenience store in the country, and walk out with the fixin's to make a bomb that could leave a crater
where the store used to be. It is possible for someone with sufficient knowledge and resources to make a nuclear bomb in their basement or garage,
given enough time. Nothing is ever going to change that. Nothing. The only reason we do not have bombs going off all hours of the day and night
everywhere across the country is that people don't want to make them. The vast majority of people simply do not care to blow something up. The few who
do, need to be removed from society.
These ideas about banning things and burning books, are nothing more than evil masquerading as lunacy masquerading as reason.There is only one thing
that can be banned and affect society positively, and that is criminal behavior. Even that cannot be completely removed, but it can be reduced a damn
sight more than we are doing today. What we are doing today, with the bans, and restrictions, and talk of both, is encouraging the one thing we need
to reduce by trying to remove something that it is impossible to remove.
Why did I read the Anarchists' Cookbook all those years ago? Because there was talk about banning it.
