The fifteen most harmful books of the 19th and 20th centuries.

Highlights? Well, there's the obvious, Mein Kampf, The Communist Manifesto, and of course Das Kapital. But then we get the real gems- The Kinsey Report, The Feminine Mystique, Beyond Good and Evil, and of course, Keynesian Economics, a 'la The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money.

Kudos.

In the runner ups, we've got The Origin of Species, On Liberty, those dangerous liberal pamphlets that, even today, corrupt our youth and lead them into teenage sex and drugs. We all know J.S. Mill was really a silent partner behind that dastardly, hip-swivelling, immoral-no-good Elvis.
  • I really am scared sometimes by my nation.
    • And Gmail's sponsored links for this?

      Karl Rove.
      Karl Rove.
      Marx Brothers 4-DVD Set.

      I think I just had an anuerism.
  • Ah, a must-read list.

    I ADORE On Liberty.
  • It's really hilarious to blame Keynes for deficit spending by the U.S. Government. Keynes's theory, whatever else one might think of it, contained a prescription for increased spending to spark the economy during slow times, followed by spending below revenue levels to prime the pump for the next time. He'd have been horrified by governments that blithely applied half of his idea.

    It looks to me like most of these pundits just made a list of "books I don't like."

    Having Darwin as a runner-up is a dead giveaway. Yeah, science is dangerous and harmful. Gotta suppress that shit.

    I agree with some of the choices, and am slack-jawed at others. Of course, Liberals and Conservatives both look like idiots on some issues, but I gotta say the Conservatives win the prize for shamelessness about it.
