Anyway i know its some intellectuals on here so any books about dictators, philosophy, politics or whatever that u recommend would be appreciated.

critically overrated.

Gangster ass african niggas eh?

Sonni Ali (conquered the largest empire in african history, one of the largest land empires of all time, raw summa bitch)

Menelik II(beat off the italians trying to take over ethiopia, some say he invented the Du Rag lol. It was a head warp he used when fighting cause he kingly garments were to heavy)

Shaka Zulu (raw)

Askia The Great

Things Fall Apart's main character Okonwo

Mobutu

Sani Abacha (faggot, but gangster non the less)

Hannibal

Musa Mali (richest man of all time, ice power was off the chain, took a trip to mecca with 2000 slaves or some shit like that, all of them wearing gold robes and hold a 4th of their own weight in gold bars, gave away so much gold that the value of gold dropped dramatically and didn't recover for 14 years)

Abubukari II (woke up one day and started wondering if there's another side to the atlantic ocean back before colombus and shit, so he bui;lt 2000 ships and, gave up his throne and set sail. This was after sending a fleet and then only one of them coming back cause they encountered a hurricane, which only happens in the Americas, so he decided to do it himself)



Mien Kampf is hilter's philosophy, it explains why he believes in racial superiority and hates jews and shit. At first read you'll be like, wow, then after a while you'll realize he was just a frustrated dude that wrote a book.

Just seems a lot of famous people are saying he shouldn't have been executed. But then you read the people who actually knew him couldn't give a fuck if he died.

I'm neutral when it comes to the execution part. It's true that lots of people said that he should've have been executed. A big part of that thought is because of the book he wrote. Rich in information and since he spent the rest of his days behind bars, he became a changed man.
But the law doesn't give a fuck if you're changed man or not. They only look at the reason why you're in the penitentiary to begin with. Nothing less.

im searching for another rare mafia book to. a turkish one though. thing is not much is known of this book. when it first came out in the late 70's. everyone thought it was this fictional story. cause the content seemed like some sort of hollywood movie. then a series of events unveiled that the books contents were all true. most of the books were destroyed cause it revealed soo much. mainly about how fuked up NATO is, also how far some Ultra-nationalists were prepared to go.

Thats true.

But I suppose if you changed people sentences, everyone would become a 'changed man'. And once you set a precident, etc.

Not saying that's my opinion, because I'm really not sure how I feel on the subject.

reading a book is not an admission of weakness. knowledge is power. there is always something new you can learn.
i regards to women,i have an khemetic relationship manual, the karma sutra, that reflexology book, and tantric sex, they have techniques in it that i am willing to bet you don't know.
for example, there are exercises you can do to increase your dick size and control your orgasms, then there are the physiological breakdowns of sex. plus there are mental/spiritual philosophies that you can apply that are almost like love spells.

48 Laws of Power.
how to gain power in any situation, relationship, community or confrontation.
this book would be considered a spell book in an earlier time. many of the laws are common sense or instinctual but sometimes we need reminders. there's nothing spiritual or mystical about the book its just a coldblodded muthafukka. its a book you can page thru or read it deeply as it takes each law, states it, gives a brief breakdown, then goes in depth and gives historical examples of the law in action.

The Teachings of Don Juan
this is a good nonfiction story about a UC anthropology student (Carlos) who goes to mexico meet a Yaqi shaman named Don Juan.
Don puts him thru an an initiation of sorts and begins to open a new world of mysticism and ancient knowledge to Carlos. heavy natural hallucinogenics (peyote) are used and the descriptions of his trips are like short stories in themselves.
but the ill part is that carlos has Don Juan to guide him and explain the trips which gives so much meaning to "the other side" of reality.

teachings spans about a 4 year period 1961-1965.
the book is dope.

I read this book about a year ago called Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah, it's the account of his time as a child soldier in Sierra Leone. Pretty good.

I dont know about the Don Juan books.

Interesting reading, but i doubt that its completely true.

I read/heard somewhere that he made most of it up.

Not that it matters to me though really.

Read all of Bret Easton Ellis' books, they're good.

On the Road is a favourite.

right now im looking at timothy leary's autobiography and the Dharma Bums by Kerouac.

I just read some shit book by the guy who wrote Fight Club, called Choke.


well it was ok, just a bit annoying.

Pat, The Don Juan book IS made up. it's a story about peyote trips. just like if you wrote a book about your dreams and their interpretation. it would be made up but they really happened at the same time.

Yeah, see im not old enough to have any idea about the context of the release of the books.

But my understanding was that they were meant to be factual, in that his meetings and discussions with Don Juan actually occurred.

But werent.

As i said, it doesnt matter to me.

One thing that really annoys me is people who associate intelligence with reading.

You can gain knowledge form reading, but it doesnt guarantee the gaining of knowledge.

One person can read something as explaining the universe, while another person reads it and gets nothing from it.

I read purely for entertainment though, so i dont worry about any of that.

Why would you be willing to bet that I dont know about making my dick size bigger like that and the degrees of sex? Cmon man. Dont take shit offensively cuz I said I dont get down with books like that.
nah i was just giving u some fly nigguh testament type shit..i used to deal with this incredibly bad chick when i was younger and she was real into reading sex books and all that..she recommended 1 to me and u know i took that jewel and learned alot from it..nothing wrong with sharpening your sword(no pun)..and as far as attributing reading to intelligence thats an emphatic now cipher..but reading definitely expands your vocab and strengthens your conversation game...so.

A waste of time if you know all about wu extensively.

I found 10% of the book to have material I did not know.
The rest was on some "I already know this" type shit.

i read one of my pooh books whilst high off my face once, i got scared because i thought it was all metaphors for pedophiles! i still haven't finished the book.

i bought 2 alice books. while i was reading "alice through the looking glass" i had a nightmare one night where my life was weird like the book. scared the shit out of me too, so i haven't finished that book either.
