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)

Customer Review

2.0 out of 5 starsWarning-THIS IS A SERIOUS BOOK!!

ByM. Rubleon December 4, 2013 Format: Hardcover|Verified Purchase

The mistake may have been on my part. I was expecting something funny. What I got was very much like an extremely dedicated teacher of literature telling you WHY the books were bad. Anyone who's studied classic lit knows that a lot of 'Must Reads' are, in fact, stinkers when you actually read them. So it really isn't necessary to cast asperations on the authors possible reasons for writing them. One person's bad book is another person's favorite. If you're going to skew something, do it via humor. Otherwise, you just come across as a pedantic jerk (as well as sounding sexist).

Hitler is the third Reign (reich) of pagan Rome or the third six of the 666 trilogy. Marx and communist-era Moscow are the Great Whore of the great tribulation known as WW II that sits on 7 hills and many waters (5 seas). IMHO, The rest of those 10 authors are merely little whores in comparison.

I would've thought pseudo-religious texts would've been high on the list, like Dianetics by L Ron Howard, The Book of Mormon by Joseph Smith and Drink the Kool-Aid by Jimmy Jones & Marshall Applewhite

Not to mention the Bible,the Koran,and every other religious dogmatic book that ever existed.

And The Koran should be number 1 on any destructive list.

Now if you are talking institution of religion then I can see that.

The parameters of "religion" run the gamut from "Christian" to "Gnostic" to "New Age" to "Satanist" to "Democrat" to "Atheist", to ad infinitum. Basically ANY "Belief System".

The common thread of arguably every single one of the above authors is that they are Atheist. Coincidence? Not really.

Yes, those two are there as mentioned.

The author manages to tie ALL of them together; Without Machiavelli's 'The Prince' there likely is no 'Mein Kampf' or Marx's 'Communist Manifesto'.

That's the great thing about reading this one book; Within 15 pages or so, the essence of every one of these entire subversive tomes are "read," dissected and summarized.

Hitler is the third Reign (reich) of pagan Rome or the third six of the 666 trilogy. Marx and communist-era Moscow are the Great Whore of the great tribulation known as WW II that sits on 7 hills and many waters (5 seas). IMHO, The rest of those 10 authors are merely little whores in comparison.

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.

The Koran should be number 1 on any destructive list.

It can arguably be for obvious reasons. But I believe the intent of the author was to single out books that subtly influenced Western Civ under the guise of "Enlightenment" or "wisdom."

The Koran was and is a sledgehammer that confers no such subtly of "enlightenment" or "wisdom" by any measure.

As to you comment about the Bible, you simply remain in the dark.

Well, I have also read Machiavelli's The Price, but about 50 years ago for college. I got an A on my paper and wish I still had it because now I'm having trouble recalling what I wrote (that's called getting old). Anyhow I think my conclusion was some of what he wrote is true. Sometimes, you do have to use (military) force. As for the other books, I dont think I would ever read them, because I'm a pretty busy dude, and I already have a bunch of books that I haven't read yet because there's just not enough hours in the day.

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.

Well, I own a copy of City of God, and its some deep stuff and I haven't managed to wade through the whole thing, and I'm still trying to make up my mind about that heavy-duty book. But the same idea is on our dollar bill. George Washington and the other Masons among our forefathers who designed the artwork, depict the US as the New Jerusalem, also called the City of God.

It'd be amazing to read your impressions, analysis and state of mind on The Prince from 50years ago. An "A" then? Yes, back when the teachers weren't overt Leftists who now grade with an agenda.

Anyhow I think my conclusion was some of what he wrote is true. Sometimes, you do have to use (military) force.

Fair point.

The argument switches gears into: "Is there such a thing as a 'Righteous War'?"

Answer: YES. The Bible is rife with such cases. David v Goliath an obvious case.

Machiavelli's philosophy was that of subterfuge, deception, and evil intent in the name of power. He'd rationalize the slaughter of human beings...just for kicks. (He'd say "punish them. They deserved it because they disagree with us.") He was the original Democrat.

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.

There are only 7 or possibly 8 legitimate Churches that exist on Earth today. They are: The Greek Orthodox Church, the Antioch Orthodox Church, the Jerusalem Orthodox Church, The Alexandrian Orthodox Church, the Serbian Orthodox Church, and the Bulgarian Orthodox, and of course (at one time) the Roman Orthodox (or Catholic) Church. But even as we speak, my Church (the Anglican/Episcopal Church is the process of replacing the Roman lampstand.

At first I was going to vote for Jeb, but when I figured out that he didn't have a snowvball's chance in hell of winning, I took a chance on Trump, and now he is the 23rd Episcopalian to ride the pale horse.

Lets not forget even Christians have a right to fight back on oppression. Only in the modern day western society have we drawn lines on what is expectable in war which is nonsense. War is war and to keep those from attacking you they must know what will happen.

Crusades happen because Muslims attacked Christians or did they not teach you this in school? Moslems actually murdered everyone that did not covert and now we have the ME crap today. Christians should have destroyed Islam altogether and save the world the hell we live in. Christians set people free. But I'm sure atheist would rather live among Moslems than Christians!?!

The Christian religion and belief system has dominated the West's understanding since the fall of Rome (circa ~200 CE). In fact, I will submit that the Christian butchers helped to motivate, if not create the Muslim world, as there was a backlash towards the Christian concept of "mercy."

Now, we have three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Moslem, all at each other's throats attempting to make war all over the world.

Moslems have done the most damage by any religion out side of the Atheist religion.

Well Jesus Christ performed this deed: "he died for your sins." Aren't you supposed to follow his word and thoughts and deeds?

No!

Where in the bible does it say I and my family must die?

Christians have every bit the right to live as anyone else. If not for Christians standing up there would probably be a billion less people on this earth. Communist Atheist and Moslems would rule over the world and that would be funny!/s

Good question. This is the foundation of the Abrahamic religions. It is about your own mortality.

Unfortunately, the Abrahamic religions has all kinds of "good" followers dying for a belief system not based upon common sense or reason about the world around us.

BTW: I am not an atheist as you have alluded towards in your posts. I maintain that the creator just doesn't give a damn and takes an aloof approach to the folly of mankind.

People have a mistaken view Christians are against progress and science and its the farthest from the truth.

Yes there are some but like I said they are the 1% club and if allowed to be in power do harm.

+100. You've hit one of the single greatest lies and myths perpetuated from the Humanist-Atheist-Left (with angry, hateful homosexuals not unexpectedly leading the charge.)

Christ-ians are actually committed to studying, examining, and exposing The Truth of any given matter. As per scriptural instruction.

(That "1% Club" you mentioned is as we know the exception to the rule. But by the 1% is how The Desperate attempt to caricature the other 99% of Christians.)

Militant factions of Left-Atheist-Humanist-homosexual-Democrat alliance have required a Bogeyman to rid themselves of the primary source of the Reminder of Morality: Christianity. This as they abide in the "Enemy-of-My-Enemy-is-My Friend" tactic. No matter the field of endeavor or influence -- "CHRISTIANITY" is THE Enemy.

In one of the more absurd exercises in self-delusion, we even see pseudo-intellectuals equate Christianity with "Islam".

But back to "Science":

According to Merriam-Webster:

Definition of "Science"

1 : the state of knowing : knowledge as distinguished from ignorance or misunderstanding
2 a : a department of systematized knowledge as an object of study

the science of theology

2 b : something (such as a sport or technique) that may be studied or learned like systematized knowledge

have it down to a science

3 a : knowledge or a system of knowledge covering general truths or the operation of general laws especially as obtained and tested through scientific method

Humanism-hijacked institutional "Science" has NOT followed the protocol for the definition of "Science"; Since the acceptance of Darwinism, it has gone dark, ignoring the "observe and test" methodology in order to promote THEIR mythology and pass off their politically-steeped pseudo-science teabag as established "Scientific" canon.

Scientists who attempt to correct the Humanist pseudo-science establishment are shut-down by lying rhetoric like, "Christians are anti-progress and anti-science."

Anti-Christians usually use ALL of the above content and suggestions 10 Book That Screwed Up The World' as reference books. ('Rule For Radicals' is yet another book that "Screwed Up The World"). Anti-Christians routinely use the same Alinsky-ite techniques: Accuse OTHERS of what YOU are/do. Ridicule. "Pick and freeze your target."

Caricaturing Christians with respect to the field of Science is intended to dismiss, discredit, shut down and censor not only Christians but importantly, THE TRUTH (of ANY given matter.)

Pseudo-"Science" elites (backed by Big Atheist $$$) have tried to hijack Science itself. And why not? Once the Humanist-Atheist cabal of elites kicked God out of the public arena they were given license to hijack Gummint, the Entertainment media and importantly, "Education" from K-12 to Universities.

They've shaken, stirred and blended all with Politics to create their own Religion/Cult; or some say "Cult" of Humanism. OR an "Occultism" which is merely attempted to Replace God with Man -- led by Technology.)

Christians have historically pioneered "progress" -- whether scientific discovery, democracy, equality, ethics, etc. ONLY under Christian governance have ALL matters of independence, social and intellectual organization, growth and education have all flourished. Not conspicuous: The establishment of a United State of America during an era 99% of the citizenry were...CHRISTIAN.

Justified -- expecting The Blind to suddenly see, hear, and THINK for themselves is a tall order. Continue to stand for The Truth.
