    I like the Communist Manifesto.

    And it's not really a book, but it is literature: I very much like the United States Declaration of Independence.

    "The Conquest of Bread" by Peter Kropotkin or "Marxism, Freedom, and the State" by Bakunin, although thats more of a pamphlet, but it is one of the best anti-authoritarian critiques of Marxism.

    Ideology and ideological state apparatuses - essay by Althusser

    The German ideology - Marx (BANTER).

    There's a great essay from the anarchist, Kropotkin. An appeal to the young

    'Two treatise of Government' by Locke, because it's so influential.

    'Leviathan' - Hobbes; it's a fun read. Looksy at Chapter 13; death and fury!

    The Social contract - Rousseau. You can be forced to be free; it's a really interesting (albeit ****ed up) concept to think about.

    On the genealogy of morality - Nietzsche. I've only read the first part of it tbh, but he does give some interesting perspectives on the origins of humanity. The eagles and the lambs etc.. If I'm honest I had to sparknotes it when I first read it though. :rolleyes:
