A Book suggested by @Daniel van Straaten - Ecclesiastical Megalomania by John Robbins
Explore the economic and political thought of the Roman Catholic Church, which more than ever is directing social thought and human freedom around the world. Learn how Roman Church-State power justifies the welfare state, corporativism, and feudalism all by the Vatican's official pronouncements. A chilling book for anyone interested in the coming end-time crisis
A suggestion by @TruthCanary
Mere Christianity is C.S. Lewis's forceful and accessible doctrine of Christian belief. First heard as informal radio broadcasts and then published as three separate books - The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality - Mere Christianity brings together what Lewis saw as the fundamental truths of the religion. Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations, C.S. Lewis finds a common ground on which all those who have Christian faith can stand together, proving that "at the centre of each there is something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks the same voice."

Maatskappy, State, and Empire: A Pro-Boer Revision - Joseph R. Stromberg
As we approach the centennial of the Second Anglo–Boer War (Tweede Vryheidsoorlog, or “Second War for Freedom”), reassessment of the South African experience seems in order. Whether the recent surrender by Afrikaner political leaders of their “central theme” and the dismantling of their grandiose Apartheid state will lead to heaven on earth (as some of the Soweto “comrades” expected), or even to a merely tolerable multiracial polity, remains in doubt. Historians have tended to look for the origins of South Africa’s “very strange society” in the interaction of various peoples and political forces on a rapidly changing frontier, especially in the 19th century
Tier 2: WE NEED TO GO DEEPER!!!!
Now that we are certain you can read, its time to start discussing some serious political philosophy. These books have shaped the Western view of politics as we know it today; like them or not, you have to be familiar with at least some of them to be able to sustain a serious political discussion.
Aristotle – Politics
Thucydides – History of the Peloponnesian War
Marcus Aurelius – Meditations
Machiavelli – Discourses on Livy
Calvin – Institutes of the Christian Religion
Pain – Rights of Man
Marx – Capital
*Note on Marx: Many on the right shudder at the mere name “Marx” and consider Marxism to be the source of all that is evil in the world. However, Marx’s writings have been essential in the development of modern and contemporary philosophy and politics. This means that even if you disagree with him, and you will, reading The Capital with an open mind is vital to understand what happend in world politics during the 20th century and is still happening today.
Locke – Two Treatises of Government
Hazlitt – Economics in One Lesson
*A very good, albeit short, Introduction to the Austrian School.
HHH – Democracy The God That Failed
The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbon
Edward Gibbon’s masterpiece, which narrates the history of the Roman Empire from the second century A.D. to its collapse in the west in the fifth century and in the east in the fifteenth century, is widely considered the greatest work of history ever written. This abridgment retains the full scope of the original, but in a breadth comparable to a novel. Casual readers now have access to the full sweep of Gibbon’s narrative, while instructors and students have a volume that can be read in a single term. This unique edition emphasizes elements ignored in all other abridgments—in particular the role of religion in the empire and the rise of Islam.
