20 Books That Need to Be Burned

In the post-truth era of fake news and Russian hacking, the key to steering culture and politics in the direction of progress is to control the information and media that people are exposed to. A persuasive book advocating capitalism, a heartfelt story about a struggle against state power, or a mere textbook on free market economics, are all powerful tools used by right wingers to recruit new fascists into their ranks. The mere existence of such books, their historical significant and their popularity, leads people to believe that the political views expressed in them are somehow ok, and widely held. We need to give people the impression that right wingers are a small group of uneducated social outcasts who are just mean and evil, and should be shunned rather than engaged with, and that progressives are normal decent people, university professors and intellectuals who understand that socialism and communism are desirable. So with no further ado, here are the top 20 books that need to be incinerated:

  1. Animal Farm – George Orwell*
  2. 1984 – George Orwell*
  3. Brave New World – Aldous Huxley
  4. Atlas Shrugged – Ayn Rand
  5. The Fountainhead – Ayn Rand
  6. Road To Serfdom – Frederick Hayek
  7. The Bell Curve – Charles Murray
  8. End the Fed – Ron Paul
  9. The Creature from Jekyll Island – G. Edward Griffin
  10. Human Action – Ludwig von Mises
  11. Think And Grow Rich – Napoleon Hill
  12. The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People – Stephen R. Covey
  13. How to Win Friends and Influence People – Dale Carnegie
  14. The Jungle Book – Rudyard Kipling
  15. The Magic Faraway Tree – Enid Blyton
  16. Math Textbooks
  17. Science Textbooks
  18. Logic Textbooks
  19. (White) History Textbooks
  20. The Bible – Moses

*Please not that there has been some dispute as to whether George Orwell was a genuine progressive, and although the Accredited Times understands that xe was indeed a real progressive, we also recognize that the majority of people do not understand this and believe his books to be some kind of warning about a tyrannical dystopian future.

Burning 20 titles won’t help your disgusting cause. Thankfully, you’ve spared Herbert Spencer, the father of social Darwinism. And Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche, the guy with the cool mustache. And all of Ronald Reagan’s tomes. The whole of Western civilization and culture captured by like-minded authors, sufficient to stock 1,000 Reagan libraries. In the wild. Ain’t it wonderful?

Cruz has a point. But he omits Donald Trump’s Churchillian contribution to world heritage literature. Elvis Costello wrote a song to Trump’s towering genius. I take it M.D. Genius never heard of Everyday I Write the Book???? Geeesh.

My eyesight is not what it was; where in the list is Mein Kampf? Or The Art Of the Deal?

Where in the ‘keep list’ is Das Kapital, The Communist Manifesto, The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwell, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath and The Little Red Book by Chairman Mao?

Black Lives Matter

Trump is literally Hitler. Anyone caught with “The Art of the Deal” should be criminally prosecuted.

Prosecuted is insufficient. Xe should be burned at stake with “Art of the Deal” as fuel!

Black Lives Matter

Totally agree. “DEAL” is another word for “CAPITALISM,” which is EVIL.

People who are prepared to burn books are going to start burning people. And as an ardent advocate for social justice I think we really need to do just that otherwise all our kindness and do-gooderyness is going to all be for nothing.

5 People we need to burn NOW for true SOCIAL FREEDOM.

5 Nigel Farage (made our Lord and employer George Soros angry)
4 Donald Trump (made our Lord and employer George Soros angry)
3 Pepe the Frog (George Soros has nightmares about him)
2 All rich white men (except for George Soros…but technically ‘not white’)
1 All white people.

Soros is a reptilian, no? I do not think reptilians qualify as white.

Truthspoon

He is a proud Hungarian Jewish man who nobly fought the Nazis in World War 2 by helping them round up Jews to send to the death camps…. Soros is definitely NOT a man with blood on his hands who supports genocidal Fascist regimes….it makes PERFECT SENSE that such a man should be backing all of the worldwide ANTIFA movements worldwide…….There’s NOTHING wrong with Earth politics at all……and anyone who thinks there is is an ANTISEMITE! He pays our bills. All hail Lord Soros.

That was father, son was too young at that time. I still think that xe, like most other world leaders, is a reptilian.

Truthspoon,
I gave you an up vote for this with some reserve. I love the concept of eliminating the people listed however burning would release an awful lot of CO2 emissions into our heavily polluted atmosphere.
While gathering belongings from his own people killed in Germany, George Soros was able to witness first hand how they were efficiently disposed of.
Perhaps we can get his input on the matter.

MDB, you need to start burning FUCKING WHITE MALE programmers and finally replace them with PoC specialists. I know AT is short of money due to paying $40/hr to everyone, but you should really try to hire more qualified and more expensive minority programmers. I can not flag comments any more, although I can edit them. On mac, since yesterday comments do not load well and flagged entries do not show the flags, other than hashtags.

Yes MDB, I need mine fixed too. I can’t flag either.

Animal farm and 1984 could be kept in special book repository with access only by accredited individuals such as AT staff. These books can be very helpful in designing bright future for everyone.*

* Does not include FUCKING WHITE MALES. There is no future for them.

If you read books on kindle or your computer, you need to burn those. Since a computer can be hard to burn, you leave it in your house, and burn down the house.

Yes, leave them in your Tesla, put it on auto-pilot, or just burn down the car. Auto-pilot will almost always end up in a fiery crash.

How about Bible? It was written by Jews as well. Why is it excluded from your list?

Truthspoon

But the best bits were written in Greek……. Oh no…..Why did I say that? Am I Christian? Please God, er, I mean ‘noone’…..deprogramme me from my hateful religion of peace love and forgiveness..

Old Testament mostly in Hebrew, with a few bits in Aramaic. New Testament in a Greek dialect and Aramaic. However, it was still written by Jews.
