    To some Mencken comes off as jaded. To me, he sounds like a guy who kept his eyes and ears open and was taking notes. In consideration of the posted quote, I would add that, so long as the glove is velvet, millions upon millions of people are quite fine with some dictator ruling over them. Socialism could never have survived beyond its nascence were this not so.
    Now for a little thought experiment: Imagine anyone of those debating malignant charlatans wearing not a velvet glove, but rather, a gauntlet while grasping a morning star.

    And the flip side is, 95% of the people would rather be ruled than rule.
