A Progressive Reading List

Although I very rarely purchase anything from Amazon.com, when I'm thinking about buying a book, especially an expensive book, I like skimming the reviews left by "regular people". The problem is that, as a dedicated browser, I spend too much time linking to other related books, useless discussions, and other people's reading lists. While browsing this morning, I found this Progressive Reading List. Going through this list, I had to seriously wonder; are these books fodder for rational thought, or paranoia? If this is a true representation of Progressive thought, they've lost any toehold they once had in reality. Troofer books are overly represented as are anti-Bush conspiracy theories. How does someone make sense of a complicated world when everything is a conspiracy directed against them? They're better off reading Philip K. Dick. As wacky and delusional as he was, at least he knew (most of the time) that he was writing fiction.
