This Flakturm is mentioned in the November 5, 2011 article in the New York Times, which speaks of the date (2015) in which Mein Kampf becomes common domain, meaning that no publisher will control rights.
The article mentions the fact that Mein Kampf is already widely available on the web and has sold largely. It was available in Norway, where it seems to have inspired Anders Breivik.
For anyone who fears the effect of a more widely distributed text, this may be the time to come to terms with its message in order to defend one's own position.
It's not possible any longer (if it ever were) to keep ideas from circulating freely, but it is very possible to prepare to refute ideas one finds incorrect.
Thank you for your comments billmac. When I visited Vienna 6 yrs ago I was astonished to see the two flak towers in the Augarten left over from WWII, one square, one round. There seems to be a lot of discussion about whether to remove them or not. It would be VERY difficult and expensive to make them vanish because of their massive construction. Would that that book could be made to vanish.
