50 Most Influential Books of the Last 50 (or so) Years In compiling the books on this list, the editors at SuperScholar have tried to provide a window into the culture of the last 50 years. Ideally, if you read every book on this list, you will know how we got to where we are today. Not all the books on this list are “great.” The criterion for inclusion was not greatness but INFLUENCE. All the books on this list have been enormously influential. The books we chose required some hard choices. We also tried to keep a balance between books that everyone buys and hardly anyone reads versus books that, though not widely bought and read, are deeply transformative. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25. 26. 27. 29. 30. 31. 32. 33. 34. 35. 36. 38. 39. 40. 41. 42. 43. 45.

Forum for individual lawful rebellion for your consideration: with three caveats: firstly, unless we understand the purpose, nature, implications and effects of the documents we create and serve, they are rendered powerless and we risk incurring the liability of unforseen consequences; secondly, i do not post documents in the public domain unless i have perfected and used them myself, or i have first-hand knowledge of somebody else who has done so; lastly, if anybody chooses to use any of the documents posted for their own purposes, always and without exception, they do so at their own risk. what works for one freeman will not necessarily work for another. i will be posting the documents relating to the commerical lien process once they have been perfected. however, by scrolling down the page referenced above you will find many interesting and related materials. hope this is of some help.

DRUDGE REPORT 2006® Information Liberation Cory Doctorow The British government has brought down its long-awaited Digital Economy Bill, and it's perfectly useless and terrible. It consists almost entirely of penalties for people who do things that upset the entertainment industry (including the "three-strikes" rule that allows your entire family to be cut off from the net if anyone who lives in your house is accused of copyright infringement, without proof or evidence or trial), as well as a plan to beat the hell out of the video-game industry with a new, even dumber rating system (why is it acceptable for the government to declare that some forms of artwork have to be mandatorily labelled as to their suitability for kids? And why is it only some media? So it's bad. £50,000 fines if someone in your house is accused of filesharing. But that's just for starters. What isn't in there? Lobby organisation The Open Rights Group is urging people to contact their MP to oppose the plans." Government lays out digital plans (Thanks, Lee!)

These same criminals then engaged in a sophisticated conspiracy to create a phony "friendly fire" cover story. Shocking new facts emerged about the case last night but were bizarrely underplayed by the Associated Press under nondescript headlines like 'New Details on Tillman's Death' - a complete disservice to the horrific implications that the new evidence carries. (Article continues below) Army medical examiners were suspicious about the close proximity of the three bullet holes in Pat Tillman's forehead and tried without success to get authorities to investigate whether the former NFL player's death amounted to a crime, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.

Alex Jones' Infowars I recently moved to Ecuador. Not for a vacation. Not for a month or two. I moved to Ecuador for good, as a permanent resident. These questions make Americans pause. It is in America, where the sheeple have been terrorized into staying inside the boundaries of their little “protest zones,” that you find a fragile, unstable nation. Through complacency and fear-mongering, most Americans have become cowards when it comes to political activism. The multi-trillion-dollar theft scheme In the mean time, while the sheeple of America are caught up in their hypnotic dreams of world domination, white-collar hoodlums in Washington D.C. and Wall Street are stealing everything! The oft-repeated creation of $1 trillion in new money out of thin air by the Federal Reserve has made the U.S. dollar the laughing stock of the world.
