I also recommend reading as many religious and political and philosophical and historical and journalistic and scientific texts as you can find, but these are all much less important than fiction. Also, do read the comments sections. If someone thought something was important enough to write, it is definitely important to read it. No matter how much you disagree with it. And I highly recommend carefully considering whether any response will be kind and productive.
