This is the perfect book for the 2012 elections ...and beyond! Democracy is based on propositions that are palpably not true - and what is not true, as everyone knows, is always immensely more fascinating and satisfying to the vast majority of men than what is true ...H L Mencken wrote "Notes on Democracy" over 80 years ago. His time, the paranoid and intolerant years of World War I, Prohibition, and the Scopes trial, is strikingly like our own. "Notes" isn't just a blast from the past; it's a perceptive report on today. In this book Mencken conducts a bold, libertarian attack on intrusive government, special interest groups, and mob rule that's as relevant today as it was in the 1920s. The book has something that will appeal to - and offend - everyone. Liberals will love Mencken's denunciation of jingoism; conservatives and libertarians will root for his attacks on meddling laws, hand-outs, and equality. This new edition includes an introduction and annotations by Marion Elizabeth Rodgers and an afterword by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Anthony Lewis.
