As you can expect, this list contains some of the biggest names/titles in philosophical and governmental writings, all the types and styles of literature that encourage you to think and question instead of blindly following...or, at the very least, acquaint you with what a lunatic sounds like, so you'll stop listening to (and electing) them. I tend to agree with maxomai, this should be required reading. Hell, I'm pretty certain I own most of these.
Remember, no matter what anyone tells you, it's your world, too. You should have a say in it...and you can't have a say until you learn how to speak. At the same time, you have to remember, everyone else has a say, too.
