The cynic's guide to undermining good ideas


Lenin thought all his ideas were fantastic and that everyone else was wrong..... that other democratic parties were a threat to the revolution and had to be eliminated..... I would tag that onto an old saying of Abraham Lincoln... "Our critics are our friends... they show us our weaknesses"- if you have what you think is a good idea/ i.e. hypothesis, you must test it fairly to see if it actually indeed does work and leave it open to scrutiny.... I feel it is fair to say that a lot of readers were not convinced of the success of the authors pilots in which he was involved. I think its only right that readers are allowed to make critical observations in a period when opinions seem to count more than fact in this 'post-truth' era.
