breaking bad

10 bad books

Oh, here's a good book list (and by 'good' I mean 'stupid'): 10 Books That Screwed Up the World by some neo-con nutcase called Wiker.

* The Prince, Machiavelli ('the inspiration for a long list of tyrannies')
* Discourse on Method, Descartes ('proved God’s existence only by making Him a creation of our own ego')
* Leviathan, Hobbes ('led to the belief that we have a “right” to whatever we want')
* Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels ('the most malicious book ever written')
* The Descent of Man, Darwin ('he intended “survival of the fittest” to be applied to human society')
* Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche ('issued the call for a world ruled solely by the will to power')
* Mein Kampf, Hitler ('a kind of spiritualized Darwinism')
* Coming of Age in Samoa, Mead ('pansexual paradise')
* Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, Kinsey ('autobiography masquerading as science')
