There is a recent troll diary suggesting that ignorant liberals read the Gulag Archipelago, the New Testament, and a book I've never heard of before (and expect I'll never hear of again) called Liberal Fascism.
As liberals, we recognize that the world is complex and we therefore are necessarily ignorant of some of it. I thought it might be interesting to list some of the reading that has made me less ignorant and, incidentally(?) more liberal.
I'd be curious to see what reading others might list.
My list (which is partial) is below the fold.
Please note that my list is in no way prescriptive of what anyone "should" read, nor is it a list of the most critical or valuable books.
On Liberty (John Stuart Mill)
The Gulag Archipelago (Alexander Solzhenitsyn)
Letter from a Birmingham Jail (Reverend King)
The Promised Land (Nicholas Lemann)
Conscience of a Liberal (Paul Krugman)
Straight White Male:The Lowest Difficulty Setting There Is (John Scalzi)
What are a few of the things that might be on your list?
