Mr. Statistics’ Socioeconomic Resource Extravaganza

Congratulations—you’ve reached the most informative page on the Internet. The books, articles, and authors linked here are sure to make you squeamish if you’ve become infected with any of the prevailing cultural notions that define modern Western civilization.

In other words, I know you’re gonna dig this 😀

Daily Reading

The never-ending churn of current events, liberal coverage, and “reactionary” responses makes for endless reading fodder. Here’s where I turn to get my fix.

Books

Black Rednecks and White Liberals, by Thomas Sowell. I’m still trudging through this one, but Sowell has opened my eyes to the history of modern American culture in a way that no one else has. Both the over- and under-classes can be traced to their European roots, and they still exert a massive influence (possibly the ultimate influence?) over culture—and how we perceive it—today.

White Girl Bleed a Lot, by Colin Flaherty. Before the Knockout game ever hit the MSM, Flaherty was on the case, documenting hundreds of events of black-on-white violence and, more shockingly, the associated political and media cover-up from sea to shining, paternalistic sea.

White Identity: Racial Consciousness in the 21st Century, by Jared Taylor. Though the mainstream press has vilified him for his dedicated, scholarly approach to sensitive topics, Taylor has penned what I think is possibly the most damning, sobering, and illuminating treatise on modern race relations in both America and western Europe. If you enjoy the “untouchable” subjects as much as I do, you won’t be able to put this book down.

Black Skin Privilege and the American Dream, by David Horowitz and John Perazzo. This short(ish) essay examines the advancement of minorities in the new American “meritocracy,” where skin color is not only an important factor, but perhaps the preeminent one in a race-obsessed society.

Free Market Revolution: How Ayn Rand’s Ideas Can End Big Government, by Yaron Brook and Don Watkins. This is the most well-constructed argument for a free market economy I’ve read to date. Brook and Watkins structure their points in response to current cultural notions of what a society should be and what it should do for its members. As far as economic talking points are concerned, this book stands alone atop the “must read” list.

Who’s the Fairest of Them All? The Truth about Opportunity, Taxes, and Wealth in America, by Stephen Moore. In this short(ish) essay, Moore covers topics like income inequality, how equality myths bring down the average, social mobility, education, taxes, political approaches to all of the above, what the future is likely to hold if America stays the course, and a potential (if somewhat perfunctory) solution for the coming “tax bomb.”

Trickle Down Theory and Tax Cuts for the Rich, by Thomas Sowell. In response to the many harebrained ideas and politics surrounding taxes and class warfare, Sowell provides a concise, no-nonsense commentary on the economic and social realities that should inform any sane, results-orinted discussion on the matter.
