How many books off of this list have you read?
https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/bookshelf/422

I've read about 6 of them,
Huckleberry Finn,
Tom Sawyer
Ulysses,
The Call of the Wild,
The Jungle,
and the KJV Bible.

In addition I recently read an ebook of The History of Modern Banking: The Enslavement of Mankind, which was like being redpilled all over again.

Help us make a list of banned books and I will start hosting pdf's of them on here!

imo Brave New World is a much better telling of an authoritarian state than 1984.
a) it evokes fantasy elements to better understand our reality. This is a helpful tool of myths because it clearly separates the storytelling aspects from what we are supposed to feel/ understand about the ethos of the circumstances.
b) the use of "happiness" over fear as a tool of control is much more reflected in contemporary culture.

Both stories are great, tho.
