I read The Turner Diaries, Hunter and The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion (racist), Wake Up America and The Battle For The Mind (fundamentalist), Closed: 99 Ways To Shut Down Abortion Clinics and A Time To Kill (antiabortion) just so that I could understand the mindsets of the people who campaign for such things, and thus more effectively oppose them.
