Human Events came up with a ten most harmful books list and then held a bonfire.
Okay, no bonfire, although you might think they had from some of the comments about the list.
What has raised the ire of many critics is the decision of the Human Events contributors to include books like Kinsey’s work on sexuality and Betty Friedan’s feministic manifesto on the list with more obvious choices like Mein Kampf, Quotations from Chairman Mao, and The Communist Manifesto.
I’m not sure the Human Events crowd was as devastatingly wrong as many believe. What the list really demonstrates is that after you name the worst books, there’s a steep drop-off to the next group. Thus, the raised eyebrows at names like Kinsey and Friedan, who didn’t contribute to superstates annihilating millions of people.
What interests me is Ralph Reiland at American Spectator being critical of Human Events for including work by Nietzsche and Comte.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
