10. Malleus Maleficarus
This book appeared in Europe after the Reformation period as a guide to end witchcraft. Many reformists had it in their houses to expel the evil of this world. The name of the book means The hammer of witchcraft, its purpose is teaching how to hunt down witches and stamp them. The danger of this book lies in the fact that it stood as the sole responsible writing of the ages of human hunting in Europe based on the claim of witchcraft.
9. Coming of Age in Samoa
Margret Mead wrote this book in 1928, to answer the question of sexuality in Samoa. So, she travelled there and started asking a lot of girls. What was thought to be a rich material for a book, turned out to be wild imaginative lies. The girls lied to the Anthropologist in an attempt to joke with her, they told her tales of promiscuity and more. Does not make much sense, does it?!
8. The prince
Niccolo Michiavell wrote this book in 1532, it was like a guide book to tyranny. Stalin had it on his nightstand, and it seems like Hitler benefited from it also along with other notorious princes who lived and died since this book was first written.
7. Mein Kampf
Adolf Hitler wrote that book in 1925 and it did not become of mass circulation until 1945. It is believed to have been a mass of 10 million copies that circulated in 1945 and, frankly, the book was not of major importance till Hitler became a leader. This book circulates highly racial ideas in which people are divided to superior races and inferior ones. The book also has a sweeping anti-semetic tone that urged for mass murders of the jews.
6. The Pivot of Civilisation
Margret Sanger wrote The Pivot of Civilisation in 1922 prior to Hitler’s book. Sanger is the mother of contraception and planned parenthood. This book preached eugenics in its peak; if it does not have a sound mind and body, it shall not live or breed! She argued that we all have to get rid of our ‘cruel sentimentalism’ and kill all the unworthy.
5. Democracy and Education
John Dewey wrote Democracy and Education in 1916 about the type of education the children need. Dewey was a famous philosopher who changed the international perception of education. He argued that educating children should not be done in respect of facts and traditional character developing. Instead it should be hard knowledge that stimulates the skills of thinking and judging.
4. Baby and childcare
Benjamin Spoke wrote Baby and Childcare in 1946. Spoke’s book is alleged to have caused 50,000 cot deaths. These allegations were made after many advices of Spoke’s proved to be wrong and a lot of deaths were discovered to be a consequence to these advices.
3. The protocols of Elders of Zion
Written by unknown writers, this book made a wide influence decades ago. This book is supposedly about the hidden plans of the Jews to master and rule the world. The book is still believed as a factual plan in most of the European countries and middle eastern ones as well. This book exposed Zionism to its core, yet it put the Jewish community in the jeopardy of prejudice and hatred.
2. The Manifesto of the Communist party
It was written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in 1848. This book is thought to be one of the most malicious books ever written as it enspires political regimes with even more evil approaches to handle a state. This book could be intended for the spread of tyrant regimes or it was simply a manifesto made about the aspired communism by Marx.
1. Darwin’s black box
Michael Behe wrote Darwin’s black box in 1996 to suspect Darwin’s theory of Evolution. Some folks may think that this is a bad book as it gives fundamentalists an argument to make against the theory of evolution. Behe is not a fundamentalist but he surely have put the scientific community in a tight spot!
