    I've just finished reading Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith. and on the side I was reading a few books by Malthus and Ricardo. Oh and Milton Friedman is just fantastic. I am truly starting to see the virtues of a minimalistic state and absolutely no economic regulations. Liberty and Property!

    Justin, in case you are actually reading those, you might want to check out Wealth Against Commonwealth by Henry Demarest Lloyd and History of the Standard Oil Company by Ida Tarbell (the former one's easier to read, but the latter goes into more detail) to get a dissenting viewpoint about capitalism running truly unchecked.
    “It is a strange paradox that today’s central banks are generally staffed by economists, who by and large profess a belief in a theory which says that their jobs are, at the best, unnecessary, and more likely wealth-destroying. Needless to say, this is not a point widely discussed among respectable economists. Nevertheless, it is an issue worth pondering.”

    Lord Of The Flies by William Golding

    I don't have much commentary on it at the moment (seeing how I'm not too far into it) other than I like it a hell of a lot more than Madam Bovary , Jane Eyre and To Kill A Mockingbird .

    Sick of politicians, And politics
    And prisons, Lyin' and runnin' my life.
    You pathetic preachers and hypocritic leaders,
    Smilin' and wastin' my time.

    Sick of your religions and full of shit opinions,
    Tired of waiting to die.
    Run me in, I'll do it all again,
    Motherfucker I'm still alive...

    I'm still reading Great Expectations. I've got a major crush on Charles Dickens. I took a break to read Post Office by Charles Bukowski. It started out great but it fizzled off into reaaaaaally redundant pissing and moaning about the ins-and-outs of postal service and betting at race tracks. Dude, SHUT UP, Charles. Get back to banging dumb sluts and drowning your sorrows in alcoholism!

    Thumbs up

    The Art of Insulting, by Arthur Schopenhauer.

    I thought that instead of an imbecile daily check on my horoscope in the morning newspaper i could take a paragraph of the best philosophy i've ever read and put it against my own self. The guy has a positioning. And he insults a lot. I don't need any other "sack of wind" philosophy anymore.
