Book Burning in Scotland

The person who posted this four-minute film to YouTube indicates that these 3,000 books were burned in late 2004. The bookstore owner who explains why the books are being burned in a rather spectacular tower that he created for them makes a good case for himself. What do you think? Was he justified in disposing of unwanted stock this way?

And for comparative purposes, here's a short video on the recent book burning in Kansas City that we've previously discussed:


  1. I guess they Scots never heard of recycling...

  2. I do have to wonder why they would burn that much paper and why the local government allowed that kind of air pollution to be rather needlessly created.
