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?

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.

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!

You only know history because someone with a mission wrote it down. As you can see by todays events written history does not actually match reality.

Unless you are a vampire and have lived for thousands of years and were able to be teleported at will to locations of your desire! 8|

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!?!

Yeah, wasn't the view of and about the world around us based on the Christian's interpretation of the HOLY BIBLE a flat or planar world as opposed to oblate spheroid? Oh yeah ... and the Sun revolves around the Earth because "God placed man in the center of the Universe."

It's a good thing the Renaissance and later Enlightenment eras changed this silly notion, wouldn't you say?

You mean the church and not Christianity? Church is government for the betterment of the church rulers.

The age that was allowed to happen because? Christians! We could all be Romans who had 100d's of gods or Moslems who had whomever or Communist who pray to the religion of no religion.

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.

Your understanding of Christianity is like North Koreans understanding of Christianity or pretty much anything.

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.

I love the distorted view.

Oh my word! Add up all the murders by all three governments ie churches and Atheist puts them to shame and probably doubles if not triples them!

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

But when is a crime to fight back against those that want to kill you? Are Christians suppose to die to claim they are good people? When Christians fight back its called murder and bad? You live in a distorted world of Christian hate.

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.
