Person of the Day

H.L. Menken

He was a defender of rights and liberty. He was overly critical of just about everyone and everything. He was a journalist, satirist, and a social critic. Read more about him here.

Some of my favority quotes by Menken:

"Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance."

"The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all, it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality."

Find your favorites in the list of Menken quotations.
