Henry Louis Mencken a contrarian and master writer it must be said The book itself is not only bold in its aim to discredit and attack that most cherished political institution but also in the way Mencken goes about it through a kind of rhetorical violence an artillery barrage of wit elouence and scathing criticism Does he succeed Modern democracts would hope not If my opinion is any indication however I would say that Mencken does succeed in his broadest aim to make the reader think critically about democracy and democratic society This is not say that his arguments always hit the mark they do often go awry or miss altogether but that in the broad strokes it is often hard to disagreeFrom here on the review will be divided into parts The first will be purely about Mencken in a literary perspective it will concern his language and writing style The second part will be about his political points and will inevitably be opinionated Mencken as a Writer What is immediately apparent when reading Mencken is the language There is simply no ignoring it His elouence is breathtaking his mastery of the American language laudable and he is wonderfully verbose his prose turgid and somehow still very readable To employ one example of many I confess for my part that it greatly delights me I enjoy democracy immensely It is incomparably idiotic and hence incomparatively amusing Does it exalt dunderheads cowards trimmers frauds cads Then the pain of seeing them go up is balanced and obliterated by the joy of seeing them come downYou ll have also noticed that I say the American language and not the English language This is because Mencken is indeed distinctly American not only in outlook but in the idioms and words that he employs I confess to never having heard of such as terms as mountebanks bugaboos dunderheads or indeed hobgoblins It is wonderfully amusingNonetheless it must be said that Mencken like so many talented writers does at times overindulge He can be excessively verbose His prose is at times so full of elaborate wordcraft Latin phrases and obscure historical allusions that it leaves one struggling to keep up indeed I struggle to understand what he s even trying to sayGenerally speaking however this is not the norm So long as one s grasp of the American language or in the case of an English writer like I the nearby reach of a dictionary is reasonably secure Mencken is uite readable Mencken as a Thinker Inevitably the main scope of this review lies with the ideas presented in Notes on Democracy There are actually a number and I shall surmrise them briefly for the sake of clarity Democracy is the rule of the mob and the mob are idiots This is the basic premise that underlies much of his other arguments Mencken provides two arguments for it firstly he argues that it is self evident on the basis of the decisions that democratic societies actually make He gives the examples of Prohibition comstockery censorship of literature deemed obscene and various other historical cases One can uite easily put anti trans laws persecution of LGBT people austerity and selling off council housing in this category Mencken unfortunately tries to take it a step further He believes that the mob are congenitally idiots they are born with a limited intellect This view is undoubtedly influenced by Darwinism of which he is a great fan and its bastard cousin social Darwinism His view is unfortunately the product of a very early and limited understanding of biology that lacks advanced knowledge of race and genetics Menckel is also a racist likely influenced by the so called science conducted in his day that proved blacks were inferior The mob is sovereign in a democratic society regardless of whether or not it is representative and indifferent of how many constitutional hurdles there are He gives the eighteenth ammendment Prohibition as an example Democracy is inherently linked with Puritanism it engages in a great deal of persecution against minorities heretics and other such hobgoblins Menckel believes there are two fundamental causes envy and fear Fear of what the average yokel cannot understand such as evolution and envy of others who have a good time Democracy likes capitalism Capitalism is about greed self aggrandisement and impoverishing the other fellow This corresponds to the base desires of homo democratus And finally democratic societies will always be lead by demagogues and hacks Those who appeal to the vagaries and fears of the mob will as a rule become the Congressmen the Senators and the judges This will occur regardless of whether the democracy is direct or representative in the former demagogues will shift and manipulate public opinion in much the same way So do these criticism have any merit Of course they do But some than others Hence I will address each of them separately to begin with Are the Mob Idiots As Menckel puts it Examples from our own time are so numerous and notorious that it is needless to direct attention to them It is axiomatic that all measures for safeguarding the public health are opposed by the majority and that getting them upon the books is mainly a matter of deceiving and checkmating it What happened in Los Angeles when a vaccination ordinance was submitted to a popular referendum is typical of what would happen anywhere under the same circumstances The ordinance was rejected and smallpox spread in the town The proletariat alarmed then proceeded against it by going to Christian Scientists osteopaths and chiropractors Without a doubt Menckel s central thesis is his strongest The examples he gives are mirrored in the modern US anti vaxxers Christian groups that blame cancer on abortion or STIs on contraception the monsters that Mencken rallies against are here and very much alive 80 years onIndeed you can uite easily substitute a whole host of contemporaneous issues straight into Menckel s argument To uote him from a separate work As democracy is perfected the office of president represents and closely the inner soul of the people On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moronDonald Trump anyoneIt doesn t stop there of course Here across the pond the mob voted to shoot itself in the foot and chose Brexit The year before the proletariat voted to elect a Tory government when the Tories tried to cut tax credits it was like the turkeys realised what Christmas meant See this link Indeed the sheer number of catastrophic decisions that the mob makes and against demonstrable fact such as on evolution global warming and the cause of the banking crisis is staggering Mencken believed many spurious things Behaviourist psychology is now all but discredited There s no such thing as a superior race But in this Mencken is not discredited the fact is his argument even 80 years on applies just as easily to the issues of today as it did back then It is simply inconceivable for it to not lack a grain of truth Are the Mob Congenitally Idiots Where Menckel s thesis begins to weaken is when he takes the argument above a step further and claims that the mob is not only just full of idiots the mob are destined by genetics to be full of idiotsWe can tell Menckel is mistaken by looking away from the US of A and across the Atlantic A great deal of what Mencken describes does not exist here in England or in the Netherlands There is nothing like the anti vaxxer or the anti abortion movements here in England and nor do religious fanatics elect members of parliament In the Netherlands there is no Puritan prosecution of the kind Mencken describes Alcohol is legal Holland was the first country to bring in gay marriage You can kiss your brother Even drugs are legalSo clearly idiocy in politics is not biological in nature if there can be such vast differences between nations Further there appears to be no genetic link underlying political lunacy Working class children can and do become competent statesmen John Major is one example But if the mob is not populated by idiots out of biological necessity than why are there so many damn idiots The cause is likely to do with education and expertise On a first point of order the mob makes bad decisions because very few of those in it are economists historians or statesmen Frankly issues of complex economic political legal and historical means are beyond the ken of a cashier at Tesco Or Wal Mart for you AmericansThere is also scarce doubt that education makes a great deal of difference The reason the Netherlands is generally well run and the reason that the US is generally badly run is because the populus of the two nations are radically different where it comes to education and the mediaIn the US few know anything about economics or statecraft In the Netherlands civil education is taken seriously In the UK the gutter press publish propaganda under the direction of Rupert Murdoch Fox News does the same across the pond But in Holland the media as a whole is of a higher regard Are the Masses Really Sovereign Mencken in his usual elouent fashion argues that all democratic systems of government are practically the same The lowly Christian I have limned is not only the glory of democratic states but also their boss Sovereignty is in him sometimes both actually and legally but always actually Whatever he wants badly enough he can get If he is misled by mountebanks and swindled by scoundrels it is only because his credulity and imbecility cover a wider area than his simple desires The precise form of the government he suffers under is of small importance Whether it be called a constitutional monarchy as in England or a representative republic as in France or a pure democracy as in some of the cantons of Switzerland it is always essentially the sameUndoubtedly many democrats I m thinking of the likes of Robert Dahl or Noam Chomsky in particular would bristle at this They re always complaining about how the political elites don t represent the people that if only a purer form of democracy were brought in the nation would find its succourBut in Menkel s words the solution to democracy is not democracy The fact of the matter is that it even the most watered down democracies with representatives first past the post constitutions and lawyers the people still choose who to vote for At the end of the day political parties generally share the prejudices of their voters And if the voters find themselves overly discontent with the current political regime they vote in radicals Front National Podemos Syriza UKIP it is only a matter of time before the common man gets what he wants and gets it good and hard Once I uote MenckenMencken discredits his opponents further however Even if democracy were pure the mob will still be misled by peddlers of fanciful lies The fact of the matter is the ordinary girl at Sports Direct does not know much or have much opinion on the matters of EU treaties environmental legislation or tax law She votes on sentiment and those who can understand and manipulate her prejudices be it Farage with his xenophobic rhetoric the Conservatives with their economic plan or the likes of Podemos with their implausible promises can and will convince her to vote in way or the otherBut this is not to say that the masses lack sovereignty that they are manipulated without end Menkel recognised this dichtomy and had a clear answer to it the mob is still obviously a mob It is unpredictable and has many contradictory and shifting prejudices The mob is ultimately sovereign if the demagogue or politician which according to Mencken usually amount to the same thing fails to adapt to the shifting wind he will be thrown overboard a new demagogue in his place Democracy and Puritanism To be perfectly frank I don t buy Mencken s argument that democracy is inherently linked with Puritanism Firstly this is because such a claim is obviously wrong the Netherlands a very democratic country is about as far from Puritanism as you can get Mencken fell foul to three false premises in making this claim He firstly knew only of the US and secondly cherry picked to ignore less convenient examples elsewhere Thirdly he based his argument on psycho babbleIt s ironic actually In Notes on Democracy Mencken criticises the psychologists of the 19th century but then proceeds to accept a bogus psychology behaviourism while providing a false psychology of the democratic massesThe reality is the democratic masses are not all jealous and afraid of each other or envious of the higher classes While Mencken is correct to assert that jealousy and fear are the main though perhaps not only causes of Puritanism hence anti LGBT laws or the banning of alcohol or nude art he is incorrect to believe that the masses are by nature PuritanAs with believing that political acuity is genetic Mencken simply takes his argument too far on the basis of ideas that while popular in his time are simply false Democracy and Capitalism According to Mencken capitalism is popular under democracy because Democratic man can understand the aims and aspirations of Capitalism they are greatly magnified simply his own aims and aspirationsIf we recall the aims of democratic man are to be fed safe entertained and above all to have some sort of upperhand against his fellow man Looking at modern America with its obesity its 247 reality TV and its crude oppression of the lower economic classes it is easy to accept thisBut perhaps it is not uite the whole story Many communist governments like that in Cuba do have a good deal of public support 47% of Cubans have a positive view of Raul Castro for exampleOr maybe the psychology of democratic man is to some degree the psychology of human beings in general Of course we want to be well fed entertained and some of us do secretly want to outdo the otherBut I feel Mencken is ultimately mistaken here For one a good part of the reason why communisms fail to take root in democratic societies is because communist movements tend to be revolutionary and unless the situation is very dire no one really wants a revolution Mencken is correct when he says that being safe warm and fed is important to the average man than abstract concepts of liberty or communist dreams of the emancipation of the workersAnother issue is that democratic societies are generally wealthy societies Europe America and Japan are obvious examples The Chinese on the other hand do not have democracy nor do many in the Middle East Africa or South America This inevitably biases the ratio of capitalist democracies Mencken s biggest mistake however is fundamental He simply assumes that human psychology is immutable and constant across the ages But he is uite mistaken hunter gatherer societies were freuently communist Matriarchy was once common that patriarchy The Dignity of the Politician Mencken finally blamed democracy for undermining the decency of its politicians To be a politician and gain power one must tell the electorate what they want to hear A politician is therefore either an unprincipled hack or he insults his principles by deceiving the electorate whenever they turn against himHillary Clinton is perhaps a prime example of this Her politics changes with the windBut what of the likes of Jeremy Corbyn He has stuck fast to his principles for the past 30 yearsMencken would say that he is the exception that proves the rule for the past 30 years he has been a backbencher and the only reason he s an MP is because of the vagaries of FPTP When your constituency has a large number of impoverished people and champagne socialists there is no need to sell elaborate lies and vacuous soundbites You can be true to what you areConclusionMencken is undoubtedly a fascinating thinker and an elouent writer But than that he s refreshing Usually I am told that democracy is the best thing since sliced bread especially by Liberals but also by other creatures of the political spectrum If I claim to doubt democracy I am not merely a fool I am a heretic An authoritarian Mencken drops a bucket of cold water over that Where other thinkers make metaphysical defences of the value of democracy or come up with elaborate explanations of why democratic societies make poor decisions usually because there s not eh enough democracy Mencken offers a frank and rational critiue of democracyHe s not always on the money Democracy does not have to be Puritan stupidity is a function of ignorance not genetics But in his main argument he is correct democracy is fundamentally flawed because of its mistaken belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance Are there solutions Mencken does not offer them and it is beyond the scope of this already lengthy review to consider themAll I will say is that if you enjoy having your foundational beliefs challenged by a witty intelligent contrarian Notes on Democracy is the book for you It may have some obscure historical allusions it may be verbose but damn it s good

without end Menkel recognised this dichtomy and had a clear answer to Fangirl it the mob Diggers Levellers and Agrarian Capitalism is still obviously a mob It Winterwelt is unpredictable and has many contradictory and shifting prejudices The mob Winterwelt is ultimately sovereign Stalins War if the demagogue or politician which according to Mencken usually amount to the same thing fails to adapt to the shifting wind he will be thrown overboard a new demagogue Finn's Christmas in his place Democracy and Puritanism To be perfectly frank I don t buy Mencken s argument that democracy Droit Musulman Et Société Au Sahara Prémoderne: La Justice Islamique Dans Les Oasis Du Grand Touat (Algérie) Aux Xviie – Xixe Siècles is The Lost Soul inherently linked with Puritanism Firstly this The Voices of Crabtree Lane is because such a claim Hourglass Heights is obviously wrong the Netherlands a very democratic country The Year of Falling is about as far from Puritanism as you can get Mencken fell foul to three false premises Love Is Forever Blue (McGintys Of San Antonio #2) in making this claim He firstly knew only of the US and secondly cherry picked to Think and Grow Rich ignore less convenient examples elsewhere Thirdly he based his argument on psycho babbleIt s Flip Flopped ironic actually In Notes on Democracy Mencken criticises the psychologists of the 19th century but then proceeds to accept a bogus psychology behaviourism while providing a false psychology of the democratic massesThe reality Cicerone Walking in Sicily Short And Long Distance Walks Cicerone Guide is the democratic masses are not all jealous and afraid of each other or envious of the higher classes While Mencken Cicedrone Walking in the Dolomites 28 Multi Day Routes Cicerone Guide is correct to assert that jealousy and fear are the main though perhaps not only causes of Puritanism hence anti LGBT laws or the banning of alcohol or nude art he Defiant Heart is Burned Harry Caine #1 incorrect to believe that the masses are by nature PuritanAs with believing that political acuity Wake Up Call is genetic Mencken simply takes his argument too far on the basis of SEPARATISM IN NORTH EAST INDIA ideas that while popular In a Dark Dark Wood in his time are simply false Democracy and Capitalism According to Mencken capitalism CUHK Series is popular under democracy because Democratic man can understand the aims and aspirations of Capitalism they are greatly magnified simply his own aims and aspirationsIf we recall the aims of democratic man are to be fed safe entertained and above all to have some sort of upperhand against his fellow man Looking at modern America with Explore the Bible Personal Study Guide Ezekiel Daniel Faith Under Fire its obesity Robert Pattinson La biographie non autorisée du vampire Edward Cullen de Twilight its 247 reality TV and Breaking the Bachelor Smart Cupid #1 its crude oppression of the lower economic classes Cuentos breves y extraordinarios it Barnabas Collins is easy to accept thisBut perhaps Il manuale del feng shui Lantica arte geomantica cinese che vi insegna a disporre la casa e larredamento in armonia con le leggi del cosmo it الهصور is not uite the whole story Many communist governments like that Miami Reuiem Deborah Jones Crime Thriller #1 in Cuba do have a good deal of public support 47% of Cubans have a positive view of Raul Castro for exampleOr maybe the psychology of democratic man Believe in Me is to some degree the psychology of human beings Believe in Me in general Of course we want to be well fed entertained and some of us do secretly want to outdo the otherBut I feel Mencken Nowhereville is ultimately mistaken here For one a good part of the reason why communisms fail to take root Jacoba van Tongeren en de onbekende verzetshelden van groep 2000 1940 1945 in democratic societies Amenophra and Other Poems is because communist movements tend to be revolutionary and unless the situation Jason Erwin Dean is very dire no one really wants a revolution Mencken Sex Real People Talk About What They Really Do is correct when he says that being safe warm and fed japan Journal2 is The Power of Preaching important to the average man than abstract concepts of liberty or communist dreams of the emancipation of the workersAnother 2nd issue Angelas Salvation is that democratic societies are generally wealthy societies Europe America and Japan are obvious examples The Chinese on the other hand do not have democracy nor do many Scent of Love Phantom Wolves MC #2 in the Middle East Africa or South America This Seduced Fantasys Bar and Grill #1 inevitably biases the ratio of capitalist democracies Mencken s biggest mistake however Translations is fundamental He simply assumes that human psychology Juku is Night Moves Sentinels #2 immutable and constant across the ages But he Economic Turbulence Is a Volatile Economy Good for America? is uite mistaken hunter gatherer societies were freuently communist Matriarchy was once common that patriarchy The Dignity of the Politician Mencken finally blamed democracy for undermining the decency of Chips and Change its politicians To be a politician and gain power one must tell the electorate what they want to hear A politician The Shift is therefore either an unprincipled hack or he Lauso insults his principles by deceiving the electorate whenever they turn against himHillary Clinton Nesamulla Vaansudare is perhaps a prime example of this Her politics changes with the windBut what of the likes of Jeremy Corbyn He has stuck fast to his principles for the past 30 yearsMencken would say that he a motivational masterclass life changing uotes is because of the vagaries of FPTP When your constituency has a large number of Cosmic Ordering impoverished people and champagne socialists there Chakra Clearing is no need to sell elaborate lies and vacuous soundbites You can be true to what you areConclusionMencken English Experiences Exploring and Enjoying England and Unearthing the Essence of Englishness is undoubtedly a fascinating thinker and an elouent writer But than that he s refreshing Usually I am told that democracy Law of Attraction Lessons Handout No 4 is the best thing since sliced bread especially by Liberals but also by other creatures of the political spectrum If I claim to doubt democracy I am not merely a fool I am a heretic An authoritarian Mencken drops a bucket of cold water over that Where other thinkers make metaphysical defences of the value of democracy or come up with elaborate explanations of why democratic societies make poor decisions usually because there s not eh enough democracy Mencken offers a frank and rational critiue of democracyHe s not always on the money Democracy does not have to be Puritan stupidity Chicken Soup for the Soul is a function of An Anthology of Contemporary Ghanaian Poems ignorance not genetics But Reminiscences of the Nehru Age in his main argument he Vampire Sheikh is correct democracy Death Plus Ten Years is fundamentally flawed because of My Daddys in the Military its mistaken belief Crooked Cucumber The Life and Teaching of Shunryu Suzuki in the collective wisdom of Select Orations individual Pretty Little Truths ignorance Are there solutions Mencken does not offer them and Unutulması İstenen Yıllar it The King of

Can you believe some twats on Abebooks and want 25 for this book Jesus I have never payed over 25 for anything besides rent and a large bulk order of Minoxidil from com that I get monthly Anyways the book is lacking substance he uses pompouscondescending language trademark of Mencken I think if he and I got in an argument he would constantly call me stupid and a dumb dumby mcdumber which of course I would stare blankly at him and nod pathetically in agreement because I lack a spine and any conviction to defend my rather high school level mentality on politics and culture I looked up the words he uses and have determined he could use way simpler words while simultaneously applying style dumb it down and doll it up Mencken Mencken is not an artist he is some sort of intellect thing This can contribute to some yawns over some boring history shit who are these historic figures What is a Roosevelt and some further yawns over some other stuff In addition Mencken strikes me as a word nerd I am the first to admit it is way easier to judge his vocabularyintellectetc than to recognize my own lack of vocabularyintellectetc and my failure to comprehend such works whatever fuck him he s dead Anyways the man is somewhat clever and a pretty uick read though I cannot pull away any discernible points that jump out at me as of now except for below uotes I think his flamboyant grandilouent language once cleared away while reading leaves not much substance or meat and can be rather redundant It seems to be just a vain attempt to stretch the books length What a schmucky prick Generally he throws around some very interesting but very vague ideas while using fancy words and repetition of basically the same ideahis idea that democracy blows I feel he lacks in really pinning down these ideas and rather relies on fanciful words to repeat generally that same idea of democracy blowing This guy really lays into politicians he hates them and eually hates the ignoramus layman that makes up democracy Also while reading it he makes you feel retarded I can appreciate perspective though I would highly suggest the read cause its so short even for a layman ignoramus like myself and brings up some interesting points though not many Much like modern politics and history stuff the book can be dry and boring at timesMONTEBANK is his favorite word for sure I counted that the word was used 14 timesI can t believe I took the time to count that word 14 times I have no life I do share his hate for humanity Amen to thatBecause I do not belong to the herd and am not suffering from mob mentality I will give this book 3 stars opposed to the conformist Democratic men of goodreadscom and there conformist ratings of 4 5 stars Mencken is looking up from hell nodding in approval for my act of revolutionary individualism and intellect I am a true rebel in the social networking community of sheepI need a drink Anyways this shit is just too outdated for the most part eg who the fuck is President Wilson and why do I care Will knowing him get me discounts on alcohol or get me laid Does it reduce my rent I have important things to worry about than democracy and its short comings for example is 3 too much to spend on a used turtle neck sweater with a stain on it from the local thrift store and how to part my hair in order to comb over my obvious patchy bald spots that dominate my skullSeriously I have the weirdest balding patternsThroughout the book Mencken redundantly rips into democracy with no freshness and of course no other other solution to dreaded democracy and capitalism though he is aware of this and makes this clear by stating My business is not prognosis but diagnosis and To lack a remedy is to lack the very license to discuss disease As any other political writing worth reading his points are based a lot on political psychology and I believe takes some ues from Nietzsche aka Mencken s Mustached Master that took me three hours to come up with In addition on positive note I thought this was a creative way to create a word and there is the art of what may be called by a shot gun marriage of Latin and Greek the dema slaveThough I could have totally misread that whole sentence I thought he created the word dema slave by shot gun marrying DemaLatin and SlaveGreek Also I think that is the dorkiest observation I have ever written and have probably lost most of my readers all two of them one including me and the other my mother that I pester to read my reviews and articles in order to validate my meager accomplishmentsI hope I have not lost face momSome uotesAll the revolutions in history have been started by hungry city mobsWhen the city mob fights it is not for liberty but for ham and cabbage When it wins its first act is to destroy every form of freedom that is not directed wholly to that endThe fact is that liberty in any true sense is a concept that lies uite beyond the reach of the inferior man s mind He can imagine and even esteem in his way certain false forms of liberty for example the right to choose between two political mountebanks and to yell for the obviously dishonest but the reality is incomprehensible to himLiberty means self reliance it means resolution it means enterprise it means the capacity for doing withoutThe free man is one who has won a small and precarious territory from the great mob of his inferiors and is prepared and ready to defend it and make it support him All around him are enemies and where he stands there is no friend He can hope for little help from other men of his own kind for they have battles of their own to fight He has made himself a sort of god in his little world and he must face the responsibilities of a god and the dreadful lonelinessViewed thus it must be obvious that he is still incapable of bearing the pangs of liberty They make him uncomfortable they alarm him they fill him with a great loneliness There is no high adventurousness in him but only fear He not only doesn t long for liberty he is uite unable to stand it What he longs for is something wholly different to wit security He needs protection He is afraid of getting hurt All else is affectation delusion empty wordsThe American people true enough are sheep Worse they are donkeys Yet worse to borrow from their own dialect they are goats They are thus constantly bamboozled and exploited by small minorities of their own number by determined and ambitious individuals and even by exterior groups The business of victimizing them is a lucrative profession an exact science and a delicate and lofty artThe art of politics under democracy is simply the art of ringing it Two branches reveal themselves There is the art of the demagogue and there is the art of what may be called by a shot gun marriage of Latin and Greek the demaslave They are complementary and both of them are degrading to their practitioners The demagogue is one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots The demaslave is one who listens to what these idiots have to say and then pretends that he believes it himselfAn aristocratic society may hold that a soldier or a man of learning is superior to a rich manufacturer or banker but in a democratic society the latter are inevitably put higher if only because their achievement is readily comprehended by the inferior man and he can easily imagine himself by some favour of God duplicating it Thus the imponderable but powerful force of public opinion directs the aspirations of all the alert and ambitious young men toward business and what is so assiduously practised tends to produce experts EW Howe I incline to think is uite right when he argues that the average American banker or buisness man whatever his demerits otherwise is at least competent professionally than the average American statesman musician painter author labour leader scholar theologian or politician Think of the best American poet of our time or the best soldier or the best violoncellist and then ask yourself if his rank among his fellows in the world is seriously to be compared with that of the late J Pierpont Morgan among financial manipulators or that of John D Rockefeller among traders The capitalists in fact run the country as they run all democracies they emerged in Germany after the republic arose from the ruins of the late war like Anadyomeme from the sea They organize and contral the minorities that struggle eternally for power and so get a gradually firmer grip upon the government One by one they dispose of such demagogues as Bryan and Roosevelt and put the helm of state into the hands of trusted and reliable men McKinely Harding Coolidge In England Germany and France they patronize in a somewhat wistful way what remains of the old aristocracies In the United States through such agents as the late Gompers they keep Demos penned in a gilt and glittering cage Public Opinion Walter Lippman searching for it could not find it A century before him Fichte said es gar nicht existirte Public opinion in its raw state gushes out in the immemorial form of the mob s fears It is piped to central factories and there it is flavoured and coloured and put into cansThe man who hopes absurdly it appears is in some fantastic and gaseous manner a better citizen than the man who detects and exposes the truth Bear this sweet democratic axiom clearly in mind It is fundamentally what is the matter with the United Statesthe last joke upon man may be that he never learned how to govern himself in a rational and competent mannerDemocratic man as I have remarked is uite unable to think of himself as a free individual he must belong to a group or shake with fear and loneliness and the group of course must have its leadersthe uest for happiness as always brings only unhappiness in the end Dead Asleep Emma Caldridge #4 in Politics The word Democracy derives from two Greek words demos the people; kratein to
