The Future of Reading

Near the outbreak of WWII, Otto Frank applied for, and was denied a visa to the US because of the 1924 Immigration Act. His daughter, Anne, ended up writing a book, more of a diary really, that gained some notoriety. So when you and your kids are forced to read her book in school, remember that she died, in part, because the of the US. And if we want to have those kinds of pieces of literature in the future, we need to make sure a fuckload of people get killed around the world. Everybody seems to like Malala Yousafzai. If she grew up in a stable, peaceful society with a reasonable expectation of safety and education, nobody would know who she is. For the sake of future school reading lists let’s kill a bunch of people. I can’t put a price on a well rounded education, but a Tomahawk missile is only about $1.5 million.
