Censorship, Propaganda or Freedom?

H.L. Mencken on censorship and propaganda.

But the right to freedom obviously involves the right to be foolish. If what I say must be passed on for its sagacity by censors, however wise and prudent, then I have no free speech. And if what I may believe — about gall stones, the Constitution, castor-oil, or God — is conditioned by law, then I am not a free man.

Mencken, H.L., A Mencken Chrestomathy, Christian Science, pg.382, The Franklin Library, 1980

Censorship, propaganda, or freedom? It’s your choice of what you’ll accept.
