If I’ve learned anything about the world it’s that everywhere you look ignorance is the midwife of malevolence. There’s a reason, after all, dictators kill journalists and fascists burn books. But assassinations and bonfires are easy to condemn. What do you do when, instead of handing out bullets and matches, evil men get into the business of turning knowledge into ignorance, selling us their news and writing their own books, subverting and debasing the very idea of truth? Words have always been the weapons of the weak. That’s why they want to destroy them.
