Ah but a look at the effects of banning literature and confining freedom of expression
Don't be surprised
when
I show up at your door

with the inability to open
my mind
and my eyes
to
pretty much
everything.

Don't be surprised
when
I burn books
and spit on their ashes
because I have been told

that my life is unfair
because of them.

Don't be surprised
when
I laugh at neo-communists
fascists
liberalists
and leftists

claiming that they are borderline insane.

Don't be surprised
when
freedoms
and rights

of expression
do not exist
because in order for
them to exist

society must vanish.



Don't be surprised
when
burning a book
is like extinguishing
a
fire

(we are pyromaniacs).

Don't be surprised
when man fails
to see
that

freedom of expression
is the key to
multi-lateralism

when man fails
to abolish utilitarism

and when
man becomes
robot
