This is a very good idea I think but you have to explain it to everyone in your group for this to work. But if everyone had experience with this book I could see it being very helpful in any group style think tank.

Good thoughts but he wasn't much of an expert in many of the issues he talked about. Some wrong information here and there.

Oh man this is such a great read. I was glued to it the whole time. I love the art, it's always on point. But the writing blows it out of the park. Real solid read in my opinion.

George R.R. Martin
“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Karl Marx
“The bourgeoisie, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. It has pitilessly torn asunder the motley feudal ties that bound man to his 'natural superiors,' and has left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, callous 'cash payment.' It has drowned the most heavenly ecstasies of religious fervor, of chivalrous enthusiasm, of philistine sentimentalism, in the icy water of egotistical calculation. It has resolved personal worth into exchange value, and in place of the numberless indefeasible chartered freedoms, has set up that single, unconscionable freedom—Free Trade. In one word, for exploitation, veiled by religious and political illusions, it has substituted naked, shameless, direct, brutal exploitation.

The bourgeoisie has stripped of its halo every occupation hitherto honored and looked up to with reverent awe. It has converted the physician, the lawyer, the priest, the poet, the man of science, into its paid wage laborers.

The bourgeoisie has torn away from the family its sentimental veil, and has reduced the family relation to a mere money relation.”
Karl Marx, The Communist Manifesto

George R.R. Martin
“Why is it that when one man builds a wall, the next man immediately needs to know what's on the other side?”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Rick Riordan
“With great power... comes great need to take a nap. Wake me up later.”
Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

Penn Jillette
“Love and respect all people. Hate and destroy all faith.”
Penn Jillette, God, No!: Signs You May Already Be an Atheist and Other Magical Tales
