Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Ray Bradbury

Bigger the population, the more minorities. Don’t step on the toes of the dog lovers, the cat lovers, doctors, lawyers, merchants, chiefs, Mormons, Baptists, Unitarians, second-generation Chinese, Swedes, Italians, Germans, Texans, Brooklynites, Irishmen, people from Oregon or Mexico. The people in this book, this play, this TV serial are not meant to represent any actual painters, cartographers, mechanics anywhere. The bigger your market, Montag, the less you handle controversy, remember that!

Authors, full of evil thoughts, lock up your typewriters. They did.

Ray Bradbury, in his novel of book-burning, Fahrenheit 451 (1953), p. 54, in which a character explains why society decided to prohibit the creation, reading, and owning of books. N.B. Paper burns at the temperature indicated in the title.

    1953, what prescience!  The progressives have adopted the “thought”, hopefully to thier detriment and ultimate demise. 
    Such is necessary to accomplish an imposed one world order to replace the pesky, unregulated market and its spontaneous order. 
    Love all variences, except in thought or result. Make no sense, or progress.
