Reader comments about this quote:
Probably the first time I haven't fully agreed with Mencken. It doesn't take a majority to make a rebellion (for example, the States united war of independence); my ahhh moment comes from "a sound cause." Socialism is not a sound cause ! ! ! Rebellion against tyranny, despotism, anti-law economics (such as Keynesian economics), any form of third party actions (legitimately voted in or otherwise) that are antagonistic to individual inalienable rights and any other form of slavery are sound causes.

    "The few determined " leaders will usually get the rabble to follow them. See recent presidential elections, and never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.
