You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.
Ray Bradbury

Malcolm Gladwell
Cultural legacies are powerful forces. They have deep roots and long lives. They persist, generation after generation, virtually intact, even as the economic and social and demographic conditions that spawned them have vanished, and they play such a role in directing attitudes and behavior that we cannot make sense of our world without them.
Malcolm Gladwell, Outliers: The Story of Success
