The year was 1933 and Nazism had taken control over Germany. In an act of state censorship the Office for Press and Propaganda of the German Student Union proclaimed a nationwide “Action against the Un-German Spirit”. On May 10, 1933, over 25,000 volumes of books deemed offensive to Nazism were burned. It is now considered one of our darkest hours in world history.
The year was 2015 and liberalism had taken control over the United States. In an act of state censorship the Confederate flag was removed and banned across the country. Citizens in a state of mass hysteria called for the removal and destruction of monuments, images and even television shows that feature the offensive image. When the taste of victory hit the liberal mob, cries to ban the national flag of the United State could be heard. The mob fueled by the mainstream media fed into the mass hysteria and at this time the end is no where in sight. How will future generation look upon this act of censorship?
