"Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries"  
...according to "panel of 15 conservative scholars and public policy leaders".

Most aren't particularly surprising. They include: anything related to Communism (obviously, turns people into traitors), the Kinsey report (turns men into homos), The Feminine Mystique (turns women into lezbo feminazis), and Comte's The Course of Positive Philosophy (turns god-fearing Christians into Satanistsatheists).

Also included is Mein Kampf, because they still can't get away with openly admiring its author.

The runners-up include The Origin of Species and The Descent of Man (biology: evil!), Madness and Civilisation (history: evil!), and Unsafe At Any Speed (seat belts: evil!).

Notably absent: The Blue Book of The John Birch Society

I like how indiscriminantly John Stewart Mill is mixed in with MEIN KAMPF.
