    Feyd ze Butcher never read fiction, hated Max Stirner, vehemently opposed Austrian economics and was generally a twit. Therefore I object to your comparison.

    He also fucked chickens.

    I can't back that up.

    I haven't been motivated to read, other than news.

    I've gone through a couple of series books, I have the last one to the last series, but again, not motivated.

    If it was good enough for Prez Reagan it's good enough for anybody.

    I hadnt seen that but watched it yesterday......the book was written a couple of years after he went missing so didnt have any sort of input from his wife and kids which the doc does.
    Quite interesting.
    Moitissier was the one to watch who on the home run decided to forget the race and go around the world again.......for the lolz.

    Also intersting to not was one of the other South African competitors who nearly won Tetley,was found dead in some woods a couple of years later hanging from a tree dressed in womens lingerie.................with signs that he had been whipped.......very odd.

    Pretty much anything by CS Lewis. However, A Grief Observed might be a suggestion to young manspergs who have never had to deal with any major loss or tragedy in their lives, if only to gain some perspective.

    And of course everyone should read The Screwtape Letters, even though it's really not typical of his overall writing style.

    As time lurches forward towards the ultimate twist ending ("and just then....you died!") it seems like the copyright dates in the books I like best go back in the other direction. The problem with the shit we're drowning in these days, which sometimes seems like a blur of guys in black blazers and ponytails saying "dark vision" in an English accent, isn't just the cultural Marxism slathered on everything like Miracle Whip, but the horrible, navel-gazing self-consciousness it encourages.

    I dunno what happened exactly....it was like one terrible day we all woke up and the Jews stopped changing their names to pass for us, now we were changing our names to pass for them [the short-lived "half-Jewish" craze] just to get the hell out of retail sales and have our existences validated (in the media, of course). And the books out there reflect this.

    In The Garden Of Beasts by Eric Larsen. It deals with US Ambassador William Dodd's experiences in Berlin in 1933-34. It might be a good complement to Nemesis. It also details a lot of situations that parallel what's going on in the US today (not just laws, but attitudes among the dominant cultural groups. In America, Whites are not so slowly being cast in the part of Jews in Germany in that time period.)

    I'm on a U.S. Mex-Am War - Civil War era binge. I feel an obligation to maintain a certain level of expertise in the era because of my old thesis work. Battle Cry of Freedom is highly recommended although McPherson is certainly pro-Lincoln and, imo at least, a bit of a nigger-lover (for instance, he 'marks out' over and lauds every Afro-American contribution to the war effort as amazing, even when Afro-American regiments achieve nothing in a battle and sustain ridiculous casualties).

    Currently reading In Their Own Words: Warriors and Pioneers by T.J. Stiles (ed.), The Life of General Nathan Bedford Forrest by John Allan Wyeth (highly recommended); also reading A History of Hungary by Sugar, Hanak & Frank (it's just one of my Hungarian history texts which I have not read yet) and The Last Nazis: SS Werewolf Guerrilla Resistance in Europe 1944-1947 by Perry Biddiscombe (nothing to say about this one yet).

    Reading some Bernard Cornwell, flipping back between Sharpe series and the Starbuck Chronicles, great stuff.

    Anarch, those Birmingham books are way too PC. I'm having trouble getting through the first one.

    Almost all histories written in the past thirty years, at least, are complete PC hippie love-ins. I was surprised when I read Susan Wise Bauer's HISTORY OF THE ANCIENT WORLD that there weren't any obligatory chapters on Africans inventing the loincloth and how this saved humanity somehow, someway. She also used the BC/AD dating system which was a shock, but she had the extremely annoying habit of referring to an indefinite person in the feminine, ex. "When the historian begins writing, she first checks her notes..."

    Certainly true. Though still a good read IMO. He has a fairly low opinion of Germaine Greer, so that's a bonus IMO.

    I would recommend Machiavelli's Prince, which focuses on man as he is rather than as he ought to be (a marked departure from Aristotelian ethics of medieval Thomism). The Twelve Caesars always makes for good reading, if only because Suetonius was imperial biographer and not above recording salacious details.

    I would seriously recommend "A Confederacy of Dunces", by John K. Toole. That and "A Clockwork Orange", which I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with already.
