I rather think that the loss will be more like that of the library at Cordoba. Take a bit of time and read about it- it was astounding- not just a repository, but a center of learning, exploration, innovation. And it was lost to a combination of infighting, Berber insurgents, and the Reconquista. Sound a bit familiar?
If we lose the battle of our ‘library’, we have effectively lost the war, because there’s not much left worth fighting for.
