Not only that.... but let's say all knowledge and all books and all art goes digital, nobody owns physical books or films or art or anything.
Then there is an outage or solar flare or some sort of accident whereby everything is wiped out and all books and knowledge are lost.
Maybe it's a long term plan to rid the masses of their knowledge and intelligence.

I have thought the same thing.
You have google going around the world scanning books. You have bookstores closing down all over. I think we are on the brink of a new dark age.
I also think we are in a semi-dark age right now. Nobody reads anymore,people are getting dumber. Most ATS users are evidence of that.

As for the hidden meaning if any .........I don't know, I guess it makes sense for Them to hide and fabricate the truth. Just the fact that they are desecrating the the sanctity of the paperback and hardcover book makes me feel so sad. Take the history books and lie all you want, but for all that is holy leave us the classics!!!

This reminds me of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
With electronic books, subtle changes can be made. Idelogy can be inserted or deleted.
With print publications, the message can be sent and traded and copied and is, in a sense immortal.
I can see to a conspiracy where print media is eliminated so memes can be inserted into the public group-think via electronic publication.

Is it true, that a long time ago, firemen used to put fires out and not burn books?
We must burn the books Montag, all the books...
The fire engines are way cool.
