mencken-fest

In a review of Robert Higgs' Against Leviathan, David Gordon quotes H. L. Mencken:
"People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity in government, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and if need be, murdering those who resist?"
More Mencken is on display over at Liberty & Power as Kenneth R. Gregg reprints HLM's credo.
