This is just for reference, but I want to have this here so by September this year, if I fail the evidence will be here forever...and ever...and ever.

But in no particular order, here is what I am planning to read over the summer.

Plato - The Republic
Milton Friedman - Capitalism and Freedom
Reg Grant - The Cold War
Ben Dupre - 50 Philosophy Ideas You Really Need to Know
Ben Dupre - 50 Ethics Ideas You Really Need to Know
Gareth Southwell - 50 Philosophy of Science Ideas You Really Need to Know
John Maynard Keynes - The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money
Niccolo Machiavelli - The Prince

8 books, and from next week, I have about 8 weeks until September. After I finish re-reading the Communist Manifesto this week, this will be in play.

I probably won't get all of this done, but if I don't it will be here for the people to see in shame. I repeat, this is just a reference for my sake, you reading probably do not care. Why are you still reading? Go!

Actually, change Niccolo Machiavelli - The Prince for Bertrand Russel - The History of Western Philosophy.

Actually scrap that, that book is way too long. Back to The Prince.

"Delete your fvcking sig" -1hard

"primal man had the habit, when he came into contact with fire, of satisfying the infantile desire connected with it, by putting it out with a stream of his urine... Putting out the fire by micturating was therefore a kind of sexual act with a male, an enjoyment of sexual potency in a homosexual competition."
