Most harmful books

Human Events, a conservative magazine, has compiled a list of the most harmful books. The Communist Manifesto and Mein Kampf top the list. The long list includes Das Kapital, The Feminine Mystique, Keynes' General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money, de Beauvoir's Second Sex, Foucault's Madness and Civilization, Gramschi's Prison Notebooks, Freud's Introduction to Psychoanalysis, and The Origin of Species!

Sean Carroll of Preposterous Universe writes:

    It's Darwin's appearance that is most telling. If this really does represent mainstream conservatism, its intellectual bankruptcy is showing.

Sometimes this is terribly depressing.......but that's the way it is. Sometimes it seems like the world is really trying to go back a few centuries, and not ahead.
