Recommended Reading: What would you suggest

Would like to get a thread of recommended reading going. I know the Ron Paul reading list in "Revolution" is a great place to start. Just, which one should go first? Are there any other's that are unlisted? I just downloaded "Common Sense" by Paine and am looking forward to that. I would like to start a good library of liberty minded authors. Suggestions?

Ok, here goes...

War Made Easy by Norman Solomon.... how the media is used to dupe the people in going along with the war mongers.

All Governments Lie: The Life and Times of Rebel Journalist I.F. Stone by Myra MacPherson... Stone started writing in 1920 and died in the 1990's, so his biography provides one with a terrific history lesson through the decades covered by his writings

And one for the war-vangelicals... Bonhoeffer, Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas.... if we had Bonhoeffers among the so-called evangelical world today, George Bush would not have had a free pass from the church to commit his war crimes. The German church also sucked up to the Fuhrer, no different from the church in the US. This book shows how irrelevant (and one might say dangerous) the established church (especially the Southern Baptists and their "evangelical" entourage) was then and is today.

Read "The Law"

Dr. Paul was asked during a fairly recent interview to suggest a couple important books to start with. These are the books that he suggested.

1.) "The Law" by Frederick Bastiat.
2.) "Economics in one Lesson" by Henry Hazlitt.

You beat me to The Law. :-)

Both of these books and a lot more are available for free in the eBooks section of this site: http://www.educatorsofliberty.com.
