That is a quote from a former business colleague that I have always found suspect. When I came across this quote from Robert Gore, it reminded me of why I found the quote questionable:
"Groups don’t think, they perpetuate and enforce belief. Collectives collectivize what passes for thought, none more so than governments. There’s always the danger that someone might ask why those who rule get to club everyone else into submission. Rulers either suppress that question or try to provide a nominal justification. If they have the clubs, what are they worried about?"
Now if we were building a team of experts like Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Steve Chase, Richard Branson, Peter Thiele - I would agree that collection of experts is smarter than me BUT....this not the normal gaggle of people. This especially true when we look at the organic groups that form on social media. Many a day I am left wondering if there is any intelligent life in the universe.
Since I have been on a tear concerning the pandemic Robert Gores quote may describe why government edicts didn't fit the science.
Your thoughts? Hit me up in the comments section, thanx bill
