Book excerpt: The perfect book for the 2012 elections. . . and beyond![Democracy] [i]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...[/i]H.L. Mencken wrote [i]Notes on Democracy[/i] 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. [i]Notes[/i] isn't just a blast from the past; it's a perceptive report on today.In Notes, 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.Notes 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.The new edition includes an introduction and annotations by Marion Elizabeth Rodgers, author of Mencken: The American Iconoclast, and an afterword by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Anthony Lewis.
