Via Bookforum as always, lists and comments on the 50 best and 50 worst books of the 20th century. However the "best" and "worst" categorisations are somewhat misleading.
Mainly because the lists are, more accurately, firstly the 50 books whose philosophy we support and, on the other hand, the 50 books that are incorrigible and quite frankly dangerous leftist crap that leftards everywhere sucked up to, but especially during the 1960s when as we know the whole world turned to leftist crap, and we disagree with them quite violently.
Or along similar lines, you get my drift no doubt.
Only two several things intrigue me:
- that Malcolm X's biography appears on both lists;
- why Atlas Shrugged isn't on the "goodies" list (maybe because it was so badly written even the perpetrators of the lists reckoned it would put bricks to sleep); and
- why a seemingly sensible professional body would put its name to such puerile rubbish.
Life in all its mysterious incarnations, ya gotta love it.
