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.
