[Blog Entry] So You Think You're Conservative?

So You Think You're Conservative?

This is actually an old entry from Kristine and Luis, but they do link to Master Ninja's reaction to Human Events Online's (a Conservative publication) Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Century.

Since I'm too bored at work but not in the right state of mind to write, I finally found the time to read the whole thing and the thing that caught my eye was that hey, Master Ninja's a D&D geek, mentioning CR 18 monsters and DR 15/cold iron beasties.

On a more serious note, the Conservative's choice's gives us insight into their (debatedly twisted) mindset. Obviously Communism is a big no-no, evident by their choices of The Communist Manifesto, Mein Kampf, Quotations from Chairman Mao, as well as Marxist thinking (Das Capital). Sex and female indepdendence seen to be unpopular, with The Kinsey Report and The Feminine Mystique respectively. What surprised me was their less than savory opinions of free thinking, mainly by choosing Democracy and Education but then again, stupid citizens is what an oppresive institution needs. There goes philosophy (The Course of Positive Philosophy and Beyond Good and Evil). I guess the only thing Conservatives have in common with the rest of the world is that they hate their government and how they insist in manipulating market forces. General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money should be banned!

And let's not forget the long list of honorable mentions.
