Two books that should top any reading list for progressives who believe in "winning the future" by waging war against its current inhabitants are H. G. Wells' classic The Time Machine and Nassim Nicholas Taleb's The Black Swan. The former's narrative has entered the culture, especially through a film version that appeared in 1960, starring Rod Taylor. The first speaks volumes about cowardice, bravery, and the end of history, while the second book brilliantly demonstrates the uncertainty of it all.
