Oh for goodness sakes, burning Dixie Chicks music is NOT the same as burning books

Explain to me the difference, because I honestly don't see it.

#49...Well, historically, burning books has been a form of keeping citizens from public access to what is in the books....destroying public books, ie, libraries, etc.

It was taken out of the citizen's control to read these books of their own free will....by those who decided for the citizen what he or she could read ....or not read.

Destroying one's own collection of Dixie Chick CD's is a personal....PERSONAL...form of protest that any individual has a right to make.

I'm not going to a music store and confiscating their Dixie Chick music.....I'm just destroying my own as a form of protest.

Why don't you see this difference?
