I've spent most of my copious spare time (joke here) this past week or so re-reading the glorious Transmetropolitan. Ten collected volumes of utter barking genius, and I thought I'd share with you one of my favourite bits, a quote from H L Mencken that appears about halfway through book six:
"The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic he personally he is very apt to spread discontent amongst those who are."
