Serfdom Times believes the following two books are the most important books on bookshelves today. If you can read, do read and wonder why the world is as it is, and perhaps wonder where it might be going... read these books. (ST makes no money linking to or endorsing these excellent tomes.)

Pension or Penitentiary?
by Barbara Ehrenreich
Talk about a cry for help: Timothy J. Bowers robbed a Columbus OH bank of $80, handed the money over to a security guard, and waited for the police to come and arrest him. In court on October 11, he pleaded guilty and told the judge that he would like a three-year sentence – just enough time to get him to the age of eligibility for Social Security benefits. The judge graciously obliged, demonstrating compassionate conservativism at its warm-hearted best.
