Nassim Nicholas Taleb Quotes: My Dear Socrates You Know Why They Are

My Dear Socrates  ...  you Know Why They Are Putting You To Death? It Is Because You Make People Feel Stupid For Blindly Following Habits, Instincts, And Traditions. You May Be Occasionally Right. But You May Confuse Them About Things They've Been Doing Just Fine Without Getting In Trouble. You Are Destroying People's Illusions About Themselves. You Are Taking The Joy Of Ignorance Out Of The Things We Don't Understand. And You Have No Answer; You Have No Answer To Offer Them.
— Nassim Nicholas Taleb —
