Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries | Human Events
Errr. . . .
I shall refrain from my opinion until others of greater kenning have weighed in.
Looking at the original list that was posted, the giveaway is that one of the runners-up as 'most harmful books' is one of Darwin's - this is a very US right-wing list.
It is right wing for sure - the survey was of conservatives and a link I somehow hit on the web site described a conspiracy against US financial leadership. As far as the list goes, "consider the source" is my response.Looking at the original list that was posted, the giveaway is that one of the runners-up as 'most harmful books' is one of Darwin's - this is a very US right wing list.
One does not have to agree, to look at the list and consider the thinking, even if one boots it out again, pronto. Darwin is a hero of mine, as for so many others, but he himself, only claimed to have proposed a THEORY and he was himself, aware of a number of gaps and problems. Lethbridge;
an archaeologist, and Robert Ardrey are very interesting writers on that subject, and on Karl Marx too, and both were,and remain controversial, but neither was political in their motivation.
