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)

Where the HELL are the "Holy Books" in all this BULLSHIT? Two good examples are the Holy Bible and the Quran?

It is not an arguable point that more wars and human suffering throughout the centuries are based on these two documents.

Whats wrong with the bible? Love thy neighbor and forgiveness is a bad thing? Respect those that deserve respect?

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

Its great mythology of the early Israelite's after their expulsion from Babylon, isn't it?

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

How many so-called "churches" around the world are there: concerning Christianity? And they all have different bias and prejudice, all invoking the name of: GOD.

It must suck living in your world. All it takes is 1% doing bad things to smear all Christians.

The bible is really the New Testament. The Old Testament is a history lesson. If you are Jewish then there is no new Testament.

Don't be presumptuous. But, it appears that throughout the 2000 year history, those that believe in their faith have failed ... far beyond 1%. They have failed just as much as those that they have otherwise accused.

Look pal, I don't need you or anyone to clarify the title of the, "HOLY BIBLE."

Just like AR15 as a murder weapon there are lies and damn lies. All it takes is a few high profile cases pushed by those with an agenda to make it seem like its a 100% doing wrong.

I see how you trivialize otherwise significant consequences "pushed" by so-called Christians in the name of Jesus Christ.

Man, throughout history, Christians have murdered, enslaved, raped, pillaged, plundered and destroyed great nations around the world. Yeah, as opposed to trivializing these tragic consequences, you should be on your knees groveling for Jesus to forgive you.

I say those that write history pervert history.

Yeah some people called themselves Christians to do bad things.

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.

BTW Atheist have done more damage than all religions combined.

You have tunnel vision when it comes to history.

Write history? How about those that create history through known state sponsored atrocities? All those great Christians enslaving their own during the Middle Ages much less the Crusades (circa ~ 500 to 1500 CE) ... oh and if that wasn't enough for these perfect little godlike miniature cretins acting out their Christ like characteristics, they ensnared the entire world bringing "Christ" to Africa, to SE Asia and to South America. They murdered more people than any twentieth century fascist ever dared.

Oh yeah! Perfect little Christians they were!
