"a story of love and redemption"... just seems out of place in your reading list...

It is VERY different!   It's about World War II in Germany. A Dutch girl steals a Jewish baby out of a railroad car and is on the run in Germany...she joins a circus to hide from the Nazis....

Ed drinks bourbon... 

Nelson County Blended Bourbon - Cola, USA  $5.00 

The most prescient — and chilling — of all the science fiction stories ever written, though, is "The Marching Morons," by Cyril M. Kornbluth, first published in 1951. It should be required reading in every school on Earth.

The point that Kornbluth makes is simple, and scary: dumbbells have more children than geniuses. In "The Marching Morons" he carries that idea to its extreme, but logical, conclusion.

Kornbluth tells of a future world that is overrun with dummies: men and women who don't know anything beyond their own shallow personal interests. They don't know how their society works, or who is running it. All they care about is their personal — and immediate — gratification.

For God’s sake Ed turn off the bloody laptop, put down your other books, hide your inflatable girlfriends and read the Marching Morons.  Don’t make me come down there!
