[Zitat] Unkommentiert – 2011

There’s nothing more valuable in the war against stupidity than the public library. These are hard times, but you are each guarding a beacon.[…] The book is second only to the wheel as the best piece of technology human beings have ever invented. A book symbolises the whole intellectual history of mankind; it’s the greatest weapon ever devised in the war against stupidity. Beware of anyone who tries to make books harder to get at. And that is exactly what these closures are going to do – oh, not intentionally, except in a few cases; very few people are stupid intentionally; but that will be the effect. Books will be harder to get at. Stupidity will gain a little ground. […]“

Philip Pullman
