There are far worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.
Ideas must be challenged. Those who do not question their ideas cannot properly defend them, nor can they progress intellectually. Read things you disagree with. You may learn something, and if nothing else understand why you believe what you do. The truth is always defensible and an ignorant mind is a vulnerable mind. Most of the suggestions made here are done so with the assumption that the intended audience is moderately well-read and looking to expand their intellectual grasp. I’m not interested in yet another list of books that should have been read in high school or even college. Consider this a resource for those who have put in the time and work to actually become well-read. Leave the ignorance to the communists.
