The illuminati burned down the Library of Alexandria. The illuminati from ancient days to the Nazis to today hate books. Books are their biggest fear. Knowledge is their biggest fear. They created Amazon to destroy the book industry in America. They routinely re-edit authors works such as George Orwell's 1984 to obscure the message. They rewrote the Bible itself because they didn't like the message.

Ever since they began the illuminati have been enemies of logic and knowledge. They don't understand logic (the Magliens have no capacity for logic or rationality). They hate the truth. They hate plays and stories that teach us lessons or make us laugh. They've always viewed books at best as irrelevant, and mostly as a threat to their power. The illuminati burned down the Royal Library of Alexandria because they were trying to eliminate all books on Eearth at the time. They wanted to get rid of all the stories and all the knowledge mankind had created.

The Ancient Library of Alexandria in Alexandria, Egypt, was one of the largest and most significant libraries of the ancient world. It was dedicated to the Muses, the nine goddesses of the arts. It flourished under the patronage of the Ptolemaic dynasty and functioned as a major center of scholarship from its construction in the 3rd century BC until the Roman conquest of Egypt in 30 BC, with collections of works, lecture halls, meeting rooms, and gardens. Alexandria was considered the capital of knowledge and learning, in part because of the Great Library. Part of the library was a university where many of the most famous thinkers in ancient history studied and lectured.

The library was created by Ptolemy I Soter, who was a Macedonian general and the son of Alexander the Great. Most of the books were kept as papyrus scrolls. It is unknown precisely how many such scrolls were housed at any given time, but estimates range to 10 million at its height. All of the ancient worlds great plays, stories, philosophy, scientific ideas were housed at the Library. It was created to be a depository of all the world's stories - everything worth writing down.

In 33 BC, the Library was burned down by the evil illuminati queen Cleopatra and Mark Antony. The same two evil illuminati conspirators masterminded the assassination of Julius Caesar. The destruction of the Library has become a symbol for the loss of cultural knowledge. The ruins are still in Alexandria.

Just as the illuminati Nazis burned books during WWII, the Illuminati even back before the days of Christ burned knowledge. Cleopatra viewed the Library as a threat to her and Mark Antony's power so they wanted to destroy it completely. Just as the Nazis wanted to burn books because they thought they were subversive or represented ideologies opposed to Nazism.

Knowledge is power. Knowledge gives you tools to win your freedom. For that reason, knowledge has always been threatening to the illuminati and always will be. They rewrote the Old Testament and the New Testament but they can't rewrite every book, so they resort to barbaric things like burning libraries down.
