The phenomenon of having high confidence and low information has its benefits in society, it allows people to take chances that they otherwise wouldn’t, and those chances can turn into some impressive feats.
A Second Great Purge
Something that captures the imagination about politics for me is how thoughts and ideas can be turned into life-altering realities over both short and long timespans. It’s more than a little scary at times.
