    I never read the book but my gf did and we watched the movie last night. She said the movie was pretty good in relation to the book.

    Sounds like good additions to my reading list. This one is very clear and easy. He does advocate religion as a tool for resistance to advertising and consumerism, which some may dislike, but as a believer, I find it helpful....
    “Orthodoxy means not thinking--not needing to think. Orthodoxy is unconsciousness.”
    ― George Orwell, 1984

    “It is clear that thought is not free if the profession of certain opinions makes it impossible to earn a living. It is clear also that thought is not free if all the arguments on one side of a controversy are perpetually presented as attractively as possible, while the arguments on the other side can only be discovered by diligent search.”

    ― Bertrand Russell, Sceptical Essays

    There's another book I got today, Erich Fromm: The courage to be human, author/editor Rainer Funk, who manages Fromm's estate, and its one of the clearer statements of Fromm's humanism I've read.

    Fromm was an atheist but totally and utterly enamoured with religion and religious traditions as actually or potentially humanistic and not simply human, all to human legacies. I find it an interesting a provocative perspective, although I dont need to be resigned to naturalism myself, I see nothing to be gained by it and nothing to be lost by super naturalistic thinking as I understand it.

    The best version of you is a libertarian. If you are not a libertarian, then you aren't trying hard enough.

    How To Prove It by Velleman.

    Nothing new so far but a decent review of deductive logic and constructing formal proofs for the upcoming classes.

    Walden by Henry David Thoreau. Gosh, he rambles so much. Like I get it people are slaves to society. I'm only on page 30, so hopefully it gets better.

    Look what came in the mail today. Since my attention span basically doesn't exist it's gonna be tough to work through this, but I'm still excited.

    The Black Swan by Taleb.

    Blurb:

    Currently dealing with that awkward feeling from reading a book that mirrors one's own outlook. Feels deceptive but I like Taleb's voice.

    Plus, the recursive irony is delightful~
