Try having this conversation with someone happy with deplatforming.

What is the difference between deplatforming a person and burning their books?

I tried to explain that my local library is basically a system for propagating white ideology. It has Hegel, Marx, Sombart, Hitler, Lenin, Mao, Pol Polt, Wakefield, Adam Smith, J S Mill, the list goes on.

Should we shut down the library or just ban people under 21 from reading?

Almost nothing on Youtube is as bad as what one would find in Britannica's great books series. The holocaust, Holodomor, The Cultural Revolution, The Khmer Rouge, al happened because of literary platforms, not people on youtube.

The disconnect is real. People *know* books are harmless and that burning them is sin. Not-books are magically exempt though.
