Quote of the day—Henry Louis Mencken

The kind of man who wants the government to adopt and enforce his ideas is always the kind of man whose ideas are idiotic.

Henry Louis Mencken
Minority Report, H. L. Mencken’s Notebooks, Knopf, 1956.
[Note that he said, “Enforce”. If there is nothing to enforce, as in a law was repealed it must necessarily be a good thing, right?—Joe]
