The Road by: Cormac McCarthy

Nuff said

Fuck. I watched the movie, is the book better.

I'm planning on reading The Road along with Roadside Picnic.

Recently just read "The Prince" by Machiavelli, and am currently reading "The Communist Manifesto" by Marx.
It's interesting to read what many consider wrong or immoral. It allows you to get some insight into these ideas and you can make your own opinions on the topics.

The only webcomic I have been bothering to check regularly is Stand Still Stay Silent. The fact that it updates every weekday for months straight probably helps.

Speaking about real books I haven't been reading much as of late.

That's weird. Why is it considered wrong? You're not reading fucking Mein Kampf.

(Not joking) I would but I couldn't find it at my library.

Black Boy by Richard Wright. Amazing book. It's an autobiography of a black man growing up and living in southern US in 1910s+.

Recently just read "The Prince" by Machiavelli, and am currently reading "The Communist Manifesto" by Marx.

To be honest I'd be interesting in reading Mein Kampf. It's important to understand why arguably the worst person in the 20th Century did what he did - other than the fact that he was a cuntasaurus.

Honestly, Mein Kampf is an interesting book. Morally reprehensible, but interesting nonetheless.
Actually just Datanazush on everything.

I have a world history teacher that read it. Says it is insanely boring read.

It doesn t realy matter.

Censorship exists because people fear of the weak minded human that might be inspired to do stupid stuff by books.
Reading something no matter what it is doesn t make you a bad person... letting it influence you to do bad things makes you a bad person (and one of weak mind as well)

Yeah, fuck censorship. Hence why I'm staunchly against book burning of any kind unless it's for survival purposes.
