“People who bite the hand that feeds them usually lick the boot that kicks them.     142”
Eric Hoffer, Reflections on the Human Condition

“It is wise to take admissions of uncertainty seriously,” Daniel Kahneman noted, “but declarations of high confidence mainly tell you that an individual has constructed a coherent story in his mind, not necessarily that the story is true.”
Philip E. Tetlock, Superforecasting: The Art and Science of Prediction

Thomas Hobbes
“It is in the laws of a commonwealth, as in the laws of gaming: Whatsoever the gamesters all agree on, is injustice to none of them.”
Thomas Hobbes

Eric Hoffer
“For men to plunge headlong into an undertaking of vast change, they must be intensely discontented yet not destitute, and they must have the feeling that by the possession of some potent doctrine, infallible leader or some new technique they have access to a source of irresistible power.

Experience is a handicap.”
Eric Hoffer, The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements

Eric Hoffer
“To wrong those we hate is to add fuel to our hatred. Conversely, to treat an enemy with magnanimity is to blunt our hatred for him. 71”
Eric Hoffer, The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements
