H.L. Mencken on the USG

From his diary, Baltimore, April 1, 1945:

The government I live under has been my enemy all my active life. When it has not been engaged in silencing me it has been engaged in robbing me. So far as I can recall I have never had any contact with it that was not an outrage on my dignity and an attack on my security.
