    Lets dismiss the Bible, Quran... it just goes into a childish debate.

    I was wondering about the other big ones, some heavy hitters, like:

    Have you ever actually read it? If so, what did you think about it?

    A few others...

    I have read all of the above.
    Mein Kampf... it was meh. Interesting to get to see the ideas of the guy.

    The Turner Diaries was not too good.

    Hunter was surprisingly well written and I was surprised that it was by the same author that wrote the awful Turner Diaries.

    The Unabomber's book was really good. He makes some strong points but it is not fun reading it. I had to read it with some time away from the subject. It is really bleak but scary, as it makes sense.

    So... what other books are there, that you may have read?

    This one isn't a book but it is a highly controversial political writing, it's called "distortions at fourth hand". It got Noam Chomsky in trouble for "sympathizing with Pol Pot" but I feel that that was blown way out of proportion.

    Makes a thread about most banned books.

    "Lets dismiss the Bible"

    Disqualifies the HW Champion of banned books.

    Read Mein Kampf it was interesting as it gives a lot of background into the nazi mindset.

    The unabomber was kind of a shocker considering that he does makes a lot of sense, psycho smart is the most scary of all.

    No one ever accused Ted of being dumb. Haven't read the book but I am sure it is interesting.

    He just answered your question. I know you are trying to make some sort of point, or maybe trying to score some sort of point, but it's unnecessary, obviously.

    Are you fucking serious? I posted in my quote from wiki the answer and you just fucking quoted me in BOLD right where the answer was.
    None. I'm not the motherfucker who ever said any are banned.

    I explicitly posted the answer to your question and you ask it again???

    I enjoyed mein kampf.

    Towards the end he tended to repeat himself...but I thought he had many valid points.

    The manifesto by ted kazinski was pretty damn interesting. ..I didn't think it was the work of an insane man.

    And I wasn't surprised to find out that the jewish butler did it.

    Sorry, that was a bad joke even by my standards. It's late.




    About books banned in the US:

    From what I've gathered there are some that are banned on a local level, from certain stores or libraries or schools. Apparently there's one book called The Federal Mafia by Irwin Schiff that's kinda banned nationwide (read more about it in the links).
