STRONGLY RECOMMEND: The Palestine-Israel Conflict: A Basic Introduction, by Gregory Harms with Todd M. Ferry
Gregory’s other books are good too…especially Straight Power Concepts
It’s Not About Religion, by Gregory Harms
See my interview with Gregory in the December 2023 Newsletter.
Deadly Deception: The Proof that Sex and HIV Absolutely Do Not Cause AIDS, by Robert E. Willner. The physical book was $600 last I looked, but here’s the pdf (h/t James).
Bastard Out of Caroline, by Dorothy Allison…I don’t have any recollection of this book, only that I loved it when I read it probably thirty years ago. I passed it on to my daughter and she loved it too so I don’t think I’m going out on a limb to call it a great book.
The Gift of Rain, by Tan Twan Eng
I rarely read fiction these days, but since I wasn’t doing much work on the show, I thought I’d treat myself–unfortunately all my books are STILL in boxes. I found this lying around–no idea where it came from and was definitely cautious of anything critically acclaimed in the current cultural environment, but it was about the Pacific theater in World War Two–my father was there in the navy at that time (despite the birthday cake pictured above!) so I decided to give it a go. It was excellent!
Back Door to War, by by Charles Callan Tansill. In June, I spoke to Keith Knight (you can hear that conversation here) and our discussion reminded me of this book I inherited (ie dug out of the trash) after my father died. My father served in the Navy in the Pacific during World War II then was sorely disillusioned upon reading this book in the early ’50s. This copy I have of his has his annotations and is a first edition printed not even ten years after he returned. The book is replete with State Department memos and other primary sources proving that Pearl Harbor as a terrible provocation through which the United States government including President Roosevelt made a decision to sacrifice thousands of innocent American soldiers with an unjustifiable act of war. To my utter amazement, this book is still in print, however, the first edition seems impossible to get, so maybe it’s been edited for later editions–I don’t know. I also scratch my head at the original publisher (Regnery Press), which I have heard has deep state roots, so maybe this is a limited hangout0–but you know what I say about limited hangouts? I get more out of them than they get out of me!
The Black Cloud, by Fred Hoyle. I haven’t read it yet but it is recommended by one of the greatest Proppers of all time, Sara Dirt. She says it’s great scifi if you need to unwind. Who doesn’t?! Can’t wait!
The Imitation of Christ, by Thomas à Kempis…in honor of Easter, I thought it made sense to go to some pretty solid authority on “WWJD?” (ie What Would Jesus Do?)
Leave Everything Behind, by Bill Craver. Get your mind off the worries of the world & dive into this page turner. (I helped edit it so maybe I’m biased, but I think it’s a great book!)
The Populist Delusion, by Neema Parvini…this book is making the rounds and is definitely a big old black pill or at least a paradigm-shifter. I’m going to say this is also NSFW because I have a feeling I know what it’s pointing to. What do you think?
Society and Sanity: Understanding How to Live Well Together, by Frank Sheed
The Mandibles: A Family, 2029-2047, by Lionel Shriver
I rarely read fiction, but this is well worth it. Foreshadowing the medical-industrial complex that has since revealed itself, and imagining a world as the dollar collapses. It’s a great book.
The Church and the Libertarian: A Defense of the Catholic Church’s Teaching on Man, Economy, and State, by Christopher A. Ferrara…Definitely not in my comfort zone! The Deep Padre sent it to me & it’s already got me down rabbit holes I didn’t even know existed….expect more book recommendations to come out of this bibliography.
Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation, by William Engdahl
(courtesy of Dean who lent it to me long distance…very kind!)
In a rare foray into pulp fiction, I was stuck at my mom’s without a deep diver…I found this & it defo made the flight go by quickly…
