Books Are Weapons in the War of Ideas

Books cannot be killed by fire. People die, but books never die. No man and no force can put thought in a concentration camp forever. No man and no force can take from the world the books that embody man’s eternal fight against tyranny. In this war, we know, books are weapons.
Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Hamilton” and the new “Harry Potter” play are the hottest theatrical shows of the moment, with “Hamilton” outgrossing everything else on Broadway, and Harry, Hermione and Ron drawing hordes of muggles to London’s West End.

But success has a side effect: Both shows have fallen prey to high-tech scalpers who harvest large quantities of seats and resell them at exorbitant markups. “Hamilton” has been hit particularly hard: When it first opened on Broadway, nearly 80 percent of seats were purchased by automated ticket bots, and for Lin-Manuel Miranda’s final performance, resellers were seeking an average of $10,900 a seat.

Now, as “Hamilton” prepares to open in London this fall and “Harry Potter” plans to open on Broadway next year, the producers of both shows are aggressively trying to contain scalping, a long-festering problem for the entertainment industry that has been exacerbated by technology. The producers of “Hamilton” are trying an unusual approach for theater — paperless ticketing — while the producers of “Harry Potter” are refusing to accept resold tickets.

And in the United States and Britain, policy makers are tackling the issue anew, concerned about the effect of industrialized scalping on consumers and artists.


Picture this: Instead of receiving a traditional ticket from the box office or a facsimile printed at home, you just get an email confirming your purchase. Then, on the day of the show, you have to bring the same credit card you used for the purchase — as well as the email confirmation and a photo ID — and run the credit card through a scanner to get in. The theory is that requiring the same credit card for purchase and entrance should complicate efforts by would-be resellers.

“Going to the theater is expensive enough as it is with the money that you need to charge to put these big shows on, so it’s absolutely ridiculous for it to be inflated by third parties,” Mr. Mackintosh said.

There are downsides: It makes it harder to purchase tickets as gifts, and there is a risk of congestion or confusion at the theater doors. And the method is not fail-safe. On the day “Hamilton” tickets went on sale in London, with a face value of up to $200, tickets were already being promoted for resale at up to $6,000. Their validity was unknown — the show has vowed to cancel resold tickets — but in theory, a reseller could try to circumvent the system by accompanying customers to the show.

For now, paperless ticketing does not appear to be an option in New York, which restricts such sales. There, “Hamilton” has tried a different approach: reducing the effect of resellers by canceling suspect purchases, and, more recently, by raising prices at the box office to more closely reflect the tickets’ perceived market value.

Hi! I've been considering making some stickers/prints for myself and was wondering if you have any advice about how to go about it file-wise? I'm sort of at a loss what canvas sizes I should use for this kind of thing and what would be too small or too big to get decent quality when printing stickers and stuff. Please ignore if you consider this a sort of trade secret or you're not comfortable answering! Oh, and I hope you're feeling better!

This got long so I’ll put a break here!

Please ignores & excuse any errors. 

I was laying on something soft, with something draped over me. As I slowly woke up, I began to hear the sounds around me. I heard someone typing on a keyboard, while papers were being shuffled around. My eyes snapped opened as the previous events made their way into my mind.

I was staring up at a light gray ceiling. The room was dimly lit on my side of the room, but a far corner was lit a bit brighter. I slowly turned on my side but it didn’t serve as a distract the man that sat at the desk. I knew right away that it was Sehun. His broad shoulders and manly frame.

I laid there staring at his back for a moment. That’s when I began to realize where I was.

Am I at his house?

I quickly sat up, gasping as my eyes shot around the room. Sehun spun around in the swivel chair he resided in. He was holding some papers in his hand. His eyes met mine, and I felt like my body froze for a moment. His eyes stayed on me as if he was waiting for me to say something. He set the papers on the desk beside him but didn’t make any move to come closer to me.

“Where am I?” I asked, pushing the soft blanket off my body.

Antique Chilcat mask with Chinese coins set in as eyes.

Handbook of Aboriginal American Antiquities

William Henry Holmes
Washington: Government Printing Office, 1919.

‘A good example of an art transfer which lies somewhere near the border between the historic and the pre-European invasion of the Pacific and is thus under the ban of modernity is exemplified by an old Chilcat mask having bronze Chinese coins set in the eye sockets (fig. 18). This specimen, which is described by Lieut. Bolles, was obtained from the grave of an old “medicine man who had flourished more than two hundred years ago, six successors having filled this office; each one living to a good old age.” The Indians were entirely ignorant of the origin and significance of the coins forming the eyes of the specimen. This and many other occurrences are regarded as suggestive of indefinitely early intercourse between the New World and the Old World across the Pacific, but are not decisive.’
