Quotation of the Day…

in Hubris and humility

… is from page 82 of Thomas Sowell’s 2009 volume Intellectuals and Society:

Ironically, many of those who emphasize the complexities of real-world problems and issues nevertheless often also regard people with opposing views of those problems and issues as either intellectually or morally unworthy.  In other words, despite an emphasis on the complexities involved, these problems or issue are not regarded as being so complex that a different person could weigh the various probabilities or values differently and legitimately arrive at a different conclusion.
