Human Events has just published the “Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries,” with 20 Honorable Mentions. On the list, you’ll find such evil-doers as:
John Dewey
Alfred Kinsey
Betty Friedan
Auguste Comte
Nietzche
(you can’t make this stuff up) John Maynard Keynes
(it gets better) John Stuart Mill
(stop laughing, this is serious) Charles Darwin
(I may pass out) B.F. Skinner, ladies and gentlemen!!!
Adorno
Foucault
Margaret Mead
Gramsci
Frantz Fanon
Freud
The best part is that, apparently, and I wasn’t aware of this until now – Karl Marx actually edges out Adolph Hitler – Hitler – for evilest writer, by a nose!!
Ahh, yes. And on we sink. I never thought I’d live to see the day when Democracy and Education was listed alongside Mein Kampf (although, admittedly, I might characterize Dewey’s writing STYLE as “harmful”).
and on we sink,
scott
