H.L. Mencken Club

I am currently at a nice hotel in Baltimore, slowly digesting many excellent talks by various leaders and intellectuals within the not so establishment right.  The quality of the day has been excellent. Such speakers as Paul Gottfried, Richard Spencer, Peter Brimelow, Keith Preston, Robert Weissberg, and F. Roger Devlin spoke.  I saw Jared Taylor downstairs, so perhaps he is going to speak at dinner.   But it has been a wonderfully politically incorrect, mind filling, soul enriching day.  I haven't learned much about H.L. Mencken, except that he was one who went against the prevailing zeitgeist of the age he lived in. And the various speakers and thinkers, academics and activists also are sailing into the wind. And it is so refreshing.  I don't agree with everything said, And there is no real party line. Different points of view are presented. But it is refreshing to hear truths that are heretical outside these doors.  It is refreshing to be a heretic, culturally, politically, spiritually.  There are no easy answers and many questions, but I do indeed feel closer to truth and refreshingly free, at least temporarily, from the tyranny of lies and half truths.
