Mark Twain's Radical Liberalism - Jeffrey A. Tucker - Mises Institute
Was Mark Twain aware of censorship and what were his thoughts about it? He was light years ahead of others in much, but what about free speech?
Mark Twain quotations - Conservative
The radical of one century is the conservative of the next. The radical invents the views. When he has worn them out the conservative adopts them.
- Notebook, 1898
Well being that Twain was a classical liberal he'd be considered a libertarian today, not a conservative.
Too bad there aren't many more people like Mark Twain in America today. Not necessarily because of his views on censorship but because of his overall great sense of humor. A truly great man and a giant in American storytelling.
