The Ten most harmful books of the 19th and 20th Century

Human events asked a panel of experts to rank the ten most harmful books of the 19th and 20th century and you may be surprise on some of them (although you shouldn't be if you're reading this blog. Here are some of the list:

10. General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money author John Maynard Keynes
The book is a recipe for ever-expanding government. When the business cycle threatens a contraction of industry, and thus of jobs, he argued, the government should run up deficits, borrowing and spending money to spur economic activity. FDR adopted the idea as U.S. policy, and the U.S. government now has a $2.6-trillion annual budget and an $8-trillion dollar debt.

9. Beyond Good and Evil author Freidrich Nietzsche
:Nietzsche argued that men are driven by an amoral “Will to Power,” and that superior men will sweep aside religiously inspired moral rules, which he deemed as artificial as any other moral rules, to craft whatever rules would help them dominate the world around them. “Life itself is essentially appropriation, injury, overpowering of the strange and weaker, suppression, severity, imposition of one’s own forms, incorporation and, at the least and mildest, exploitation,” he wrote. The Nazis loved Nietzsche

6. Das Kapital by Karl Marx
Marx theorized that the inevitable eventual outcome would be global proletarian revolution. He could not have predicted 21st Century America: a free, affluent society based on capitalism and representative government that people the world over envy and seek to emulate.


...and number one is.....wait for it.....wait for it....come on it's an easy one
1. The Communist Manifesto, by Karl Marx
