Книги, которых боятся Рейган, Буш и Сара Пэйлин.

"Human Events" - вебсайт американских консерваторов. Они сами говорят что были любимым чтением Роналда Рейгана. Несколько лет назад опубликовали список: "Десять самых вредных книг 19-го и 20-го веков" ("Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries").
Любопытный набор авторов, даже не сразу понятна логика списка. Но - вот так, не любят консерваторы Маркса (2 раза), Дарвина (2 раза), Грамши, Ницше, Ленина, Гитлера, а также Огюста Конта, среди прочих зловредов. Итак, списки:

- 1. The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx and Freidrich Engels, 1848
Score: 74
- 2. Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler, 1925-26
Score: 41
- 3. Quotations from Chairman Mao, Mao Zedong, 1966
Score: 38
- 4. The Kinsey Report, Alfred Kinsey, 1948
Score: 37
