speaking of conspiracies, the internet is officially too small.

I went looking for an FAQ and clicked "tips," not noticing it was from hardforum...

Thanks for the recommendation. Never heard of those before! Just hope they aren't so obscure that my local bookstore has them!

The "Sokal paper," Transgressing the Boundaries: Toward a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity, was written by a physicist to piss on soft science. It was published, proving his point that people in these fields can (and do) string together meaningless, obfuscated . Feminism != physics.

A quote in the link, incidentally, is how Rand's writing got tagged "objectivist." AFAIK.

Les Chants de Maldoror by Comte de Lautreamont translated by Guy Wernham. Discovered this gem in college.

From the cover....

Quote:
"This macabre but beautiful work has achieved a considerable reputation as one of the earliest and most extraordinary examples of Surrealist writing."
Quote:
"It is a long narrative prose poem which celebrates the principle of Evil in an elaborate style and with a passion akin to religious fanaticism."
Also "Against the Grain" by J.K. Huysmans

Kenneth Minogue's essay How Civilizations Fall. Feminism as the decline of Western civilization.

Ted Dalrymple's Don't Legalize Drugs. Rebuts the standard legalization arguments.

Neither's airtight, but they're in a sensible direction.

Good Calories, Bad Calories - Gary Taubes - explains how we've been screwed regarding nutritional information. Fat is not bad for you, carbs are!



Tropic of Cancer - Henry Miller - Semi-autobiographical novel. Banned in the US for several decades.



An Edge In My Voice - Harlan Ellison - Essays by a brilliant curmudgeon.

Radical Honesty - Brad Blanton - life changing, if you let it.



Thomas Jefferson - The Jefferson Bible - seems to be closely aligned with how I view my faith.

I love Henry Miller

If you really like Miller I would recommend the trilogy The Rosy Crucifixion (Sexus, Plexus, and Nexus)

Yes, excellent work by him. The only Miller book I've yet to read (I think lol) is Sunday After the War.
