BOOKS WORTH READING
There are many fine books that are read in our high school years. However it would be nice if students had a little more to go on than The Great Gatsby.
Most of what is read in school doesn't force us to think or question the world around us. Most books in school are given to us to read for the sole purpose of regurgitating answers later on a test. As soon as you finish reading Shakespeare most instantly forget what was studied and has no real world application.
Over time the list of books will become longer. These books will hopefully force you to question that which you think you know and create tremendous discussions with those around you.

1984 - George Orwell
1984, is a dystopian novel published in 1949 by English author Eric Arthur Blair, who went under the pen name of George Orwell.
Look around you. Everywhere you look there are CCTV cameras watching your every move. We are told by the state that these are there for our safety and not to suppress us. Our online activity including emails are being archived in massive databases. Our computer cameras can be remotely turned on to watch us.
Even our language has changed. Anyone who is a critical thinker and questions the official narrative is labeled a "truther" which is given a bad connotation. So if the truth is bad then lying must be good? Those wanting clean water are called activists.
"Orwellian" is so commonly used that it’s now a dictionary-approved adjective.

They Killed Our President - Jesse Ventura
New York Times bestselling authors Jesse Ventura and Dick Russell have teamed up with some of the most respected and influential assassination researchers to put together the ultimate compendium that covers every angle - from the plot to the murder of JFK. They Killed Our President will not only discuss the most famous of theories, but will also bring to light new and recently discovered information, which together shows that the United States government not only was behind this egregious plot, but took every step to make sure that the truth would not come out.
With 2013 marking the fiftieth anniversary of JFK’s assassination, this is the perfect time for They Killed Our President to be available to readers. The research and information in this book are unprecedented, and there’s nobody better to bring this to everyone’s attention than the former governor of Minnesota and US Navy SEAL, Jesse Ventura.
War Is A Racket - Smedley Butler
War Is a Racket is a speech and a 1935 short book, by Smedley D. Butler, a retired United States Marine Corps Major General and two-time Medal of Honor recipient. Based on his career military experience, Butler frankly discusses how business interests commercially benefit (including war profiteering) from warfare. He had been appointed commanding officer of the Gendarmerie during the United States occupation of Haiti which lasted from 1915 to 1934.
After Butler retired from the Marine Corps, he made a nationwide tour in the early 1930s giving his speech "War is a Racket". The speech was so well received that he wrote a longer version as a short book published in 1935.
Where Did The Towers Go? - Dr. Judy Wood
This book is a forensic analysis of what effectively is a crime scene. Ground Zero and the surrounding areas were photographed countless thousands of times, yet no one really assessed all of the phenomena found in these photographs. What is presented in this book is not a theory and it is not speculation. It is evidence. It is the body of empirical evidence that must be explained in order to determine what happened at Ground Zero. Anyone declaring who did what or how they did it before they have determined what was done is merely promoting either speculation or propaganda. The popular chant, "9/11 was an inside job," is, scientifically speaking, no different from the chant that "19 bad guys with box cutters did it." Neither one is the result of a scientific investigation supported by evidence that would be admissible in court. Neither identifies what crime was committed or how it was committed. The order of crime solving is to determine 1) WHAT happened, then 2) HOW it happened (e.g., what weapon), then 3) WHO did it. And only then can we address 4) WHY they did it (i.e. motive). Let us remember what is required to (legally) convict someone of a crime. You cannot convict someone of a crime based on belief. You cannot convict someone of a crime if you don't even know what crime to charge them with. If you accuse someone of murder using a gun, you'd better be sure the body has a bullet hole in it. Yet, before noon on 9/11/01, we were told who did it, how they did it, and why they did it (they hate us for our freedoms); before any investigation had been conducted to determine what had even been done. Many people have speculated as to who committed the crimes of 9/11 and/or how they did so. But without addressing what happened, speculation of this kind is nothing more than conspiracy theory. My research is not speculation. It is a forensic investigation of what happened to the WTC complex on 9/11
