A point well made

'It seems so easy now to destroy libraries- mainly by taking away all the books- and to say that books and libraries are not relevant to people's lives. There's a lot of talk about social breakdown and alienation, but how can it be otherwise when our ideas of progress remove the centres that did so much to keep people together?'
