We by Yevgeni Zamyatin
1984 by George Orwell
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
Below is an excerpt from the coolest blog ever. This isn't a political community BUT it would be a shame to leave reality out of the subject of (impending!) doom and destruction.
[Dec 8] The warnings of Orwell's 1984 have been ignored to the determent of the principles of the founding of this country. The puppetmasters behind W have used Orwell as a roadmap. This audio clip by Mike Malloy addresses some of the key ideas used by Karl Rove in the Bush speeches.
Also, look up "miserable failure" in google and see what the first thing is to come up. That's explained in the blog too. :]
