8. Atlas Shrugged

This preachy sanctimonious screed against social responsibility has been hijacked by the .1 percent (and the wannabe .1 percent) to justify a return to laissez faire capitalism along with the deconstruction of the social safety net.

Read this instead: "The Good Old Days: They Were Terrible," because it describes exactly what the U.S. was really like when laissez faire ruled the roost.
