A great quote

This quote gave me quite a chuckle when I read it. Thanks Don Boudreaux for posting it.

It comes from page 622 of H.L. Mencken’s A Mencken Chrestomathy

“The kind of man who demands that government enforce his ideas is always the kind whose ideas are idiotic.”

In my opinion, a great insight. If the ideas were great, the “market” would implement them.
