The burning of the Library of Alexandria in 391 AD.

Free speech absolutist with a penchant for difficult truths. The name "BurningLibrary" is a reference to a growing pessimism on my part that we may be headed towards a dystopian age of censorship and disinformation. I am gravely concerned that if we lose the ability to communicate freely with each other, we lose the only chance we have. Of course, one hopes that there is a way to avoid this outcome.

I hope this is helpful.
