Karl Marx: He's No. 1
I had never heard of Human Events, The National Conservative Weekly. But when I saw a link
to their website that advertised the "TEN MOST HARMFUL BOOKS OF THE 19TH AND 20TH CENTURY" I had to visit it. I am a sucker for lists. And I hoped I had read at least a few of them. I had. Here is the list, compiled from a panel of 15 conservative scholars and policy leaders. (More on that later)
The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx and Freidrich Engles
Mein Kampf, Adolph Hitler
The Feminine Mystique, Betty Friedan
Quotations from Chairman Mao, Mao TseTung
The Kinsey Report, Alfred Kinsey
Das Kapital, Karl Marx
Democracy and Education, John Dewey
The Course of Positive Philosopy, August Comte
Beyond Good and Evil, Freidrich Nietzsche
General Theory of Employment,
Interest and Money John Maynard Keynes
Finishing just out of the money is Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, Coming of Age in Samoa, The Population Bomb, and of course The Origin of Species.
So who is Human Events? Ann Coulter for one. Terrence Jeffrey, editor, and former campaign manager for Patrick Buchanan.
Now that I know what the wingnuts don't want me to read, I have a reading list.
