Nothing to worry about...
Interesting little tale about this morning.
If I say the words: The Anarchist Cookbook, you automatically know what I mean. TAC is one of the biggest urban legends out there. If you had the opportunity, you'd give it a read, just out of morbid curiosity. I'm about as anti-nazi as you can get, but I still read Mein Kampf, just because it's an iconically controversial book. The same could be said about: The communist manifesto, Catcher in the rye, Serial killer biographies, Lolita, Behind the Mask, and the Bible and the Q'ran. Many more to list, but you get the point.
Maybe those aren't books you'd keep open on the shelves, maybe keep them in a draw or something, but the fact that they have so much controversy surrounding them, it makes you want to read them. Kinda how the warning at the beginning of an episode of Jackass makes you (or me at least) want to do the stunts even more.
Last summer, on a complete whim I typed in Anarchist Cookbook into ebay and found a guy selling pdf copies on CD. They were going for 99p and at that price, I thought "F**k it, might as well". If its on ebay, then it can't be too illegal. It came and I gave it a read through. Really stupid book. It's obvious the author never made anything inside because he'd be dead year before he did. But I'm glad I had the chance to read it.
I walked down stairs this morning to put on a pot of coffee and saw a card on the floor from the police telling me to contact them. It said: "Please contact DC Hooks ASAP. Nothing to worry about". I've just had a conversation with a police intelligence officer. Asking about my motivation to buy the book and if I'm affiliated with any political groups.
Just a little FYI, lol.
