What the hell is literary terrorism? Something that challenges the status quo or the canon. To start thinking is already an act of defiance. The powers that be do not like that.  That is the problem. I remember here, in the eighties the Stroessner regime jailed people just for having books on Karl Marx. They were subversives in their view.They were seditious. Nothing new.

You do not cause people to act in a violent way. That is not your intention. Maybe I exaggerated in the use of literary terrorism. Clearly there are authors whose books may be considered literary terrorism such as  the Old Testament or Hitler's Mein Kampf or the manifesto, Industrial Society and Its Future, by Ted Kaczynski. I only read some parts but also The Protocols of the Elders of Zion,a text that surfaced in tsarist Russia. I wonder if that can be included. This reminds me of the Index of the Vatican that forbade many authors.

Stay well.
