Our perceptions are shaped by our experiences, our values and the information we assimilate by choice, indifference or laziness. Make a choice to educate yourself - turn off the television. Reading has always been my passion. Quite possibly, I am the most frequent patron at my local library. I own or have borrowed the following books. Some of these books are also available to read in their entirety online. This growing collection is the foundation of my research and articles. However, this list has not been up-dated since about 2007. My library has probably increased by about 200 or more books. The most naive among us are indoctrinated to only read approved books, certainly not books written by left-wingers or other questionable folks like those who oppose war. That is something else the elite has done - divided us into categorized classes. Intelligent people, who refuse to accept the faulty, misleading, devisive left/right paradigm, read a variety of books and then draw their own conclusions based on their own research and intellect. There is truth in every book. It is sad if a reader fails to explore authors or books that the elites have negatively labeled. Possibly the reason authors are so labeled is that they expose a concept the elites would rather have you misunderstand or disregard as unacceptable. Develop your own foundation of truth, principles and values so that you are capable of recognizing deception when you encounter it. Be open-minded enough to be educated within your foundational frame of reference. Limiting your reading experience is extremely unproductive and allows others to make, not only your literary choices, but to shape your perceptions. Select your reading material based on principles. There are many books on this list that actually promote deceptions and propaganda, written by people who are either very ill-informed and inadvertently perpetuate misinformation and there are others who deliberately promote disinformation to deceive the reader. While these questionable books are on my list, it is up to the reader to draw their own conclusions. There is truth in every book, one just has to be perceptive enough to extract it without also accepting the disinformation.
