Quote of the Day: Mencken in 1923

"The good qualities of this so-called Anglo-Saxon are many, and I am certainly not disposed to question them, but I here pass them over without apology, for he devotes practically the whole of his literature and fully a half of his oral discourse to celebrating them himself, and so there is no danger that they will ever be disregarded."

H.L. Mencken, 16 Jul 1923, editorial "The Anglo-Saxon"

How times have changed. Now the Anglosphere's intelligentsia devotes the same amount of effort to whining about how evil our culture is relative to any other in the world.
