First of all, supposedly this list was compiled from “15 conservative scholars,” as if there *IS* such a thing in reality.
Second, I love how the little blurbs try to blame all of the “bad” things that are happening on these books.
For example, on the blurb for “The General Theory of Employment, Interest, and Money” by Keynes, the writer states, “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.”
Uh-huh. And what presidents have wracked up the most debt? Reagan, Bush I, Bush II, and Nixon.
And I love how every description starts with an ad hominem remark on the author and their social status. So is it a good thing to be rich, or a bad thing? Huh.
This is also a good one: Unsafe at Any Speed
by Ralph Nader. That’s right, consumer (i.e. CITIZEN) protection is BAD! We need more company control, with no meddling kids to tell us what is unsafe or wrong.
