This means, literally, that the past is still the present, which really means that there really is no present, not if the past never leaves it.

  Even when the knowledge itself isn’t prevented from reaching the public, the symbolic weight of burning books is heavy. “Books are not absolutely dead things, but do .   Are books dead, and can authors survive? books might not be manufactured in China and Korea but the long tail is the sweatshop of the future, and it will contain millions of would-be-writers.
