This is a question This book changed my life

The Goat writes, "Some books have made a huge impact on my life." It's true. It wasn't until the b3ta mods read the Flashman novels that we changed from mild-mannered computer operators into heavily-whiskered copulators, poltroons and all round bastards in a well-known cavalry regiment.

What books have changed the way you think, the way you live, or just gave you a rollicking good time?

Friendly hint: A bit of background rather than just a bunch of book titles would make your stories more readable

second hand book shops
are great for finding obscure out of print books or as an alternative to spending a fortune on Amazon

I bought this book a few years ago for 60p and I'd highly recommend it - it's been a much quoted resource and I wish I had an e-book version

along with "The Anglo-American Establishment" Professor Carroll Quigley, who was the historian for The Royal Institute of International Affairs goes into the reasons behind history - the stuff we never get to learn about, more relevant than just the dates and names, such as who made their fortunes, who funded who etc

Quigley is famous for saying that there's always a certain amount of competition allowed with the lower political parties and individuals but the ones at the top and the 'coterie' around them had always been vetted by a much higher organization outside of the democratic rule. Quigley wrote that we have had a secret government in a managed society for 60 years ... and he wrote this in 1960s

this is why politics is only about getting to decide how to arrange the deck chairs - you will never, and have never, been allowed to decide the direction the ship is travelling in, as we head towards a standardised world system and global governance - the water melon world - green( eco ) on the outside, red (socialist with China as the model) on the inside
