Don’t mess with a big brain

Always fear to argue with someone who isn’t afraid to say “I don’t know.” Chances are very high that they’re playing on a completely different level.

Thomas Sowell writes: Once, after giving a talk, I was confronted by a lady in the audience who asked what some people regard as the ultimate question:

“What is YOUR solution?”

“There are no solutions,” I said. “There are only trade-offs.”

“The people DEMAND solutions!” she shot back angrily.

The people can demand square circles if they want. But that doesn’t mean that they will get them. What they are more likely to get is the illusion of a solution by someone seeking their vote.
