Reading Useful Literature is Freedom

I noticed a lot of people, here in Canada at least, in their 20’s and 30’s don’t read useful literature that makes them think. Instead, they focus their attention too narrowly. Many guys devote most of their time to cravenly running after girls. Meanwhile, the girls read Cosmo and discuss Desperate Housewives, the latest man-bashing Margaret Atwood novel or reminisce over the mythical sacred feminine in the ‘Da Vinci Code’.

This unfortunate fact makes many self-described ‘eligible’ women poor dating material. A brain is not a cute ornament you keep on the mantelpiece and dust from time to time. YOU USE IT! I’m sure humanity will look back with considerable remorse when these spinsters suddenly realize that they are desperate to become housewives but no one wants their well-weathered, flea-bitten hide perforated by many a boy-toy.

It seems counter-intuitive for so many people to be morons in a country that prides itself on having close to 100% literacy. Upon closer analysis, I can see why this is the case: almost all the books that make you think are inherently anti-feminist! Why? They provide the reader with something useful... and make you think of course!

Here are a few books I’ve got on the go nowadays:

“The Road to Serfdom” by F.A. von Hayek – Effective inoculation against Socialist thought.

“The 33 Strategies of War” by Robert Greene – Practical ways to go about your life

“Leave it to Psmith” by P.G. Wodehouse – Wordy but funny as hell

For those who don’t know, most of P.G Wodehouse books are framed around the life an eccentric bachelor who essentially sees modern (early 20th century) women as a collective pain in the ass. Most importantly, he is in no hurry to get hitched and it’s the women who do most of the running to ‘get him’.
