Excerpt from The Dog and the Child and the Ancient Sailor Man
A parent is not forced to pass a civil-service examination, he is not compelled to take the stump and convince an electorate that he is qualified to ornament the high office to which he aspires, he-why, there is absolutely nothing democratic in the proceeding at all; it is an iniquitous usurpation of power, and a baby is perfectly justified in holding nightly meetings in opposition to such tyranny. If ever a situation thoroughly justifies the doctrine of free-speech, certainly this relation of parent and baby does so in unmistakable terms, and the prejudice of neighbors, the brutality of landlords, and the agonies of artificial insomnia should not be per mitted to interfere with the nocturnal demon strations by which a baby attempts to express his Opinions.
