Bertrand Russell

“The fundamental cause of the trouble is that in the modern world the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt. Even those of the intelligent who believe that they have a nostrum are too individualistic to combine with other intelligent men from whom they differ on minor points. This was not always the case.” – Bertrand Russell in “The Triumph of Stupidity” (1933) in “Mortals and Others: V2 American Essays”, 1931-1935

  1. Roseylinn, how profound and relevant in today’s time. This goes hand in hand with something I detest from leaders and pundits and that is labeling or name calling a person or issue in attempt to belittle the opposing argument and persuade an uninformed public. Well chosen. BTG
