Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

H. L. Mencken

If ‘economics tell us’ that our present army of workers, working half time, will be able, under Socialism, to earn twelve and a half times as much as at present — well, then, it is high time to demand proofs. My personal view is that no such proofs exist. The whole idea, in a word, is sheer nonsense. There is no more ground for it, in the actual facts of existence, than for the doctrine that, if I had brown eyes instead of blue, I would be a Methodist bishop at $8,000 a year.

H. L. Mencken, in Robert Rives La Monte and Mencken, Men versus The Man (1910).
