A Criticism. Of Reliance on Most “Experts.”

Go ahead and listen to that expert again. See what good it does. He may have the tone of a prophet, but the voices he hears and the visions he sees are his own. The latest chapters in his novel called “news” all fit in perfectly with the last; even if the last was dead wrong, the story flows on and you continue reading eagerly.—Why? Because the storytelling is so good? Because the fiction is preferable to the fact? Because it is better to mask worry about tomorrow with feelings of certainty than to disclose doubt and be healed of it?
