The Illusions of Democracy

We live by our opinions. While other people's opinions are called illusions, if they pose no threat to our interests, and prejudices if they do, we call our own opinions "truth" or principles, if we are fools: "the most positive men are the most credulous," as Pope observed, probably having scientists in mind.
