I recommend the work of Francis Parker Yockey as an introduction to traditionalism.

Dangerous books do not exist unless you are a control freak who wants to censor thoughts.

This applies to the liberal Cathedral, North Korea, ISIS, the Third Reich, The Wahhabi entity, China, Iran and the ancient Catholic Church.

Banned books are dangerous books.

By way of extension if a book contradicts an idea which enjoys wide acceptance with persuasive and truthful arguments, then it is dangerous to those who might wish that you would not read it.

Books are banned because someone thinks that they will corrupt you with some dangerous notion. I would argue this even extends to the many books that have been banned because of what is called obscenity.

There are books, it could be argued, which materially contributed to the fall of governments, or in other cases have given a significant boost to the spirit of those in opposition. George Orwell's books Animal Farm and 1984 as well as Solzhenitsyn's the Gulag Archipelago are examples which come to mind.

And there are books which by the force of their rhetoric might persuade you that something which is false is true. I am enough of an advocate of free speech to think that books that I do not approve of aught not be banned. In the United States notwithstanding the existence of the explicit protection granted by the Constitution there is a history of censorship by the government of the press. The question of whether such actions are warranted and if so under what circumstances is a matter of the greatest importance.

My favorite book on censorship is Ray Bradbury's science fiction novel Fahrenheit 451.

Before Bradbury's death he was interviewed by François Truffaut concerning the genesis of the novel.

If you are looking for a dangerous book that created a framework for dozens of dictatorships and the death of over 100 million people, you ought to look here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Communist_Manifesto

Otherwise I may read a Theory of Socialism and Capitalism by Hans-Hermann Hoppe

Hoppe is one of the few sane anarchists. I suggest DEMOCRACY: THE GOD THAT FAILED.

LIBERTY OR EQUALITY is a similar book and it basically shows how democracy and public ownership strips people of all their rights.

On the contrary, knowledge is extremely dangerous. That's why dictators throughout history sought to limit it by book burning. Without knowledge, education, and intelligence, why are only human. A basic Civ game without any of the DLCs. Men like Stalin and Hitler understood this.

I would highly suggest reading Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, the collected works of John Locke, and the diary of David Plouffe if you want some eye opening reads.

Francis Parker Yockey's THE ENEMY OF EUROPE had all of its original English copies destroyed by Jews, but a surviving German translation was salvaged, translated back into English, and now we have the current version. Only the introduction is Yockey's actual words, the rest has been translated, then re-translated. English was his native language.

In THE ENEMY OF EUROPE, Yockey explains that political victory is victory over the enemy. He distinguishes political victory from military victory, which can be achieved against people of the same culture.

For example Britain's "victory" in the Second World War led to the death of its empire and ultimately will lead to the total loss of European sovereignty and genocide of European white people.

^The World Wars indeed to some extant caused the downfall of white European civilization. However that's not the only reason why this happened. The most important reasons are:

1.Lack of a single leadership of the race. It does not matter that much whether Britain, US, Germany, France, Israel or Russia leads the race as long as the leader exists.

2.Too much influence from Abrahamic religions. Too much Christianity, too much Judaism, too much Islam. Christianity caused dogmas and compassion for all. Judaism caused dogmas and serious strife. Islam caused dogmas and wars.

3.Lack of any consistent racial strategy as a consequence of 1 and 2. No consistent white racial strategy existed. No consistent white racial strategy exists.

I believe one feature of both Europeans and Middle Easterners is decentralization. This fosters innovation, reduces the possibility of anti-intellectualism but also makes unified responses to anything rare. The Northeast Asian approach is the opposite, namely centralizing and controlling everything. This makes preservation of knowledge and grand strategy easier but also causes ossification. I suspect that this difference might be partly genetic. I really don't know which approach is better.

Currently reading The Terror by Dan Simmons. It's about a crew in the mid 1800s attempting to be the first men to successfully navigate the Northwest Passage, but they get frozen in for 3 winters and have to survive, all the while being hunted by some unknown creature. It's a really great read.
