Yes, but the sad part is that electronically held information (Facebook, Twitter, Google Drive, etc.) can all be easily manipulated or deleted depending on the content. Which means that they can delete anything they don't agree with and only leave up things which they agree with. It seems like printed versions are the ones that stand up for the longest period of time, but they're also susceptible to fire too!

If I remember correctly from my miss-spent youth reading classic SF novels, books ignite at 451 degrees Fahrenheit.

I'm not sure of the exact temperature, but that's just all the more reason to keep several copies in multiple sites.

Yep. If it had been on Facebook or Twitter they would have taken it down and banned whoever posted it

Sadly, that is probably what would have happened.

So you aren’t any different, LOL.

Yep. The Declaration of Independence would be considered as hate speech.

Yes, it would. They have taken time and context out of history.

And of course they teach that everyone who founded America was a racist and everything else, and they should have stayed living under oppression in Europe.

They hate the USA
