book suggestions are like opinions: everyone has a few ... fwiw here books which I re-read more than twice:

1) Jacques Ellul "The Technological Society (La Technique)":

2) Jacques Ellul "Propaganda"

3) Robert Cialdini "Influence" <- could probably be described as a modern / dark adversarial take in "how to make friends and influence people" and should be read with Kahneman & Tversky's books/papers.

4) James C. Scott "The Art of Not being Governed"

5) Dickens "Hard Times" <- for it's description of the effects on peasant communities during industrialization, which is also a theme in "La Technique" above

6) George Orwell "Down and Out in London and Paris"

7) M. Scott Peck "The Road Less Traveled"

8) Introducing Psychology of Relationships - A Practical Guide by John Karter

9) Lion Feuchtwanger "Goya"

10) Thomas Ligotti "The Conspiracy against the Human Race: A Contrivance of Horror"

11) Plato "The Republic":

12) Lewis Mumford "The Story of Utopias":

13) the major works of: Kant, Schopenhauer, Hegel, Nietzsche, Marx, Foucault, Chomsky, Zizek
