Philosophers are more dangerous than anything else


The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. — Bertrand Russell

Yes perhaps but stupid people are usually right and do much less harm than the philosophers.

  1. Half the harm that is done in the world
    Is due to people who want to feel important.
    They don’t mean to do harm—but the harm does not interest them.
    Or they do not see it, or they justify it
    Because they are absorbed in the endless struggle
    To think well of themselves.
