H.L. Mencken Author of "A Treatise on Right and Wrong," which in February 1934 formed the basis of much of what Ayn Rand later compiled into a biocentric code of virtue ethics. "If there arose tomorrow a band of fanatics advocating cannibalism that was as daring in political enterprise and as skillful in rounding up morons as the Anti-Saloon League was in 1919, two Congressmen out of three would be converted to its gospel instantly, and three public-school teachers out of four would probably be serving it as evangelists within a month.

His writings inspired Henry Louis Mencken and Ayn Rand, both of whom refer to his Forgotten Man in its true and original sense, undistorted by looter politicians.
