FLAG Flag Burning
If people have bought a flag with their own money, then I have no issue with them burning their own flag even if it is a waste of money.

If government has a problem with people expressing discontent, then they would be much better advised to find out why people are annoyed, and take steps to address and fix the issue so people stop being annoyed and upset, trying to cover up the fact that people are annoyed, or trying to use torture or other tactics to stop people sharing their views, conclusions and logic goes against the very principles of any good democracy.

likewise with books, being used for target practice if it's your book and you've paid for it, I see no reason why people can't do that.

however that being said, I suppose you could always argue carbon emissions and what ever chemicals are released from burning something as a reason not to perhaps, if shown to be harmful to the planet or other people, perhaps.
