Those who seek to change the past rarely are as malevolent as the Party of Orwell's 1984 would suggest. Instead, they are cowards seeking to make reality change to conform to their desires- desires for a stress-free life of infinite resources. To that end, they will readily descend into madness and take everyone they can along with them as they create Hell on Earth. Observe. (H/t Men of the West)
Laura Ingalls Wilder’s name will be removed from a major award because of how the “Little House on the Prairie” author portrayed minorities in her novels, the children’s division of the American Library Association voted Saturday.
“This decision was made in consideration of the fact that Wilder’s legacy, as represented by her body of work, includes expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent with ALSC’s core values of inclusiveness, integrity and respect, and responsiveness,” the Association for Library Service to Children said in a statement after the unanimous vote.
According to the organization’s website, “the Laura Ingalls Wilder Award honors an author or illustrator whose books, published in the United States, have made, over a period of years, a substantial and lasting contribution to literature for children.”
It will now be called the Children’s Literature Legacy Award.
The SJWs that pushed this change--this unpersoning, this unthinging--did so out of a pressing need to resolve pressure on their amygdalas. So stressful is the reality of the past, and those who wrote about it, that these rabbits would sooner flee into the waiting tentacles of madness than adapt to the fact that reality is not one big happy party full of pretty people doing pretty things (and other pretty people).
This is why they do it: to remove the threat to their illusions. It's not a calculating, cunning, and cold manipulation; it's the freak out reaction of a spoiled child that knows what terrifying him is reality but won't admit it and does all that is possible to deny it. If it weren't for the fact that their decisions have consequences upon others, especially the generations following them, it would be comical.
But it's not. This move is wrong, and it not only needs to be called out with great thunder, but the hammer needs to come down on them. As they are rabbits, they are vulnerable to shaming, so shame them good and hard for being cowards and weaklings too afraid of words written by a dead woman. Fire up the Rhetoric cannons, go forth into the field, and know no fear for the Emperor Protects. They will move against her further, and when they do- wham!
