Title: 10 Books That Screwed Up the World: And 5 Others That Didn't Help

You've heard of the "Great Books"? These are their evil opposites.

From Machiavelli's The Prince to Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto to Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, these "influential" books have led to war, genocide, totalitarian oppression, family breakdown, and disastrous social experiments. And yet these authors' bad ideas are still popular and pervasive-in fact, they might influence your own thinking without your realizing it.

Here with the antidote is Professor Benjamin Wiker.

In his scintillating new book, '10 Books That Screwed Up the World: And 5 Others That Didn't Help', he seizes each of these evil books by its malignant heart and exposes it to the light of day.

In this witty, learned, and provocative expose, you'll learn:

-Why Machiavelli's 'The Prince' was the inspiration for a long list of tyrannies (Stalin had it on his nightstand)
-How Descartes's Discourse on Method "proved" God's existence only by making Him a creation of our own ego
-How Hobbes's Leviathan led to the belief that we have a "right" to whatever we want
-Why Marx and Engels's Communist Manifesto could win the award for the most malicious book ever written
-How Darwin's Descent of Man proves he intended "survival of the fittest" to be applied to human society
-How Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil issued the call for a world ruled solely by the "will to power"
-How Hitler's Mein Kampf was a kind of "spiritualized Darwinism" that accounts for his genocidal anti-Semitism
-How the pansexual paradise described in Margaret Mead's Coming of Age in Samoa turned out to be a creation of her own sexual confusions and aspirations
-Why Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male was simply autobiography masquerading as science

Witty, shocking, and instructive,'10 Books That Screwed Up the World' offers a quick education on the worst ideas in human history-and how we can avoid them in the future.


Poster Comment:

This book. GET IT. (although frankly, it's far too late to "avoid" the aftermath of the institutional sociopaths and insane who now run this world.)

Been wondering how this culture, our schools, politicians and Media EVER began accepting and sanctioning evil over good? Insanity over sanity? Have turned our world of morality and ethics upside down?

Been wondering how universities and Hollywood were EVER allowed to teach subversion and lies -- and make it seem "normal"? How the type of hateful, counter-intuitive politics that the Democrats routinely support have EVER seen the light of day?

Here's a yuge advantage of reading this book:

The author has already painstakingly read, critiqued and summarized the "highlights" and its respective 400+ year long message of subterfuge, deception that "normalizes" evil and packs it in these series of "manuals." So now you are able to blow through 15 of the books that have most influenced Democrats, Liberals, Leftist, too many gummint drones in general, BLM, Antifa, the NEA, "Nasty-Women," University-types, and Hollywood-types -- i.e. serial psychopaths, sociopaths, and demon-possessed.

For what it's worth, the comments at Amazon are a hoot. Liberal and Commies are screeching bloody h*ll, having had their cover blown. (1 image)

Yes, you can definitely add to the list.

I doubt anyone here has read all of the mentioned books by either you or the above author. Good suggestions.

Many of us are familiar with Kinsey (already mentioned by the author), Dewey (and his destruction via "Education"); And Paine's 'Age of Reason'. They could arguably be on The List.

Btw, 'Atlas Shrugged' is also listed -- but in '10 Books Every Conservative Must Read: Plus Four Not to Miss and One Impostor' as the "Impostor," i.e. a Fake Conservative book by the same author.

Well, I have read Dewey's statements/argument in the "Monkey Trial which I think you are talking about. Although I agree with some of the things he said, 90 % of what he said I do not agree with at all. The Earth was not created 6,000 years ago in six days. And it is interesting that you brought up Thomas Paine. When I traced my family tree, I discovered that I am descended from Matthew Midyet who, shortly after arriving here in 1690, married a Paine (cant recall her first name right now), and she was very probably a relative of Thomas but not sure. Again, its been 50 years since I read The Age of Reason (in college) and as I recall, I liked some of it but not all of it.

The Devil routinely engages in half-truths and partial truths. What better way to deceive fully?

That's the insidiousness of these authors and their writings -- as well as of people like Dewey and Paine (in 'Age of Reason').

We might all find ourselves nodding in agreement at some of their books -- whether we admit it or not. That is part of the seduction of mixing lies and evil with truth and goodness/Godliness.

I discovered that I am descended from Matthew Midyet who, shortly after arriving here in 1690, married a Paine (cant recall her first name right now), and she was very probably a relative of Thomas but not sure. Again, its been 50 years since I read The Age of Reason (in college) and as I recall, I liked some of it but not all of it.

That's quite a lineage.
