The most dangerous man to any government…

Came across this brilliant quote, had to share:

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is apt to spread discontent among those who are.

– H.L. Mencken

This was taken from a post on the Orphans of Liberty blog – as good a place as any to start if you want to want to think things out for yourself…

    My favorite quote is “Government is the problem… and now you have cholera” 😉
