    If you're interested in this stuff, I highly recommend Daniel Kahneman's Thinking Fast and Slow. (also referenced in your clips.)

    Here's a really quick synopsis:

    "And now that the legislators and do-gooders have so futilely inflicted so many systems upon society, may they finally end where they should have begun: May they reject all systems, and try liberty; for liberty is an acknowledgment of faith in God and His works." - Bastiat

    "It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere." - Voltaire

    Certainly those in the MSM and think tanks don't have real expertise since they are consistently getting things wrong.
    "Perhaps one of the most important accomplishments of my administration is minding my own business."

    The state's only purpose is to kill and control. Why do you worship it? - Sola_Fide

    It is extremely disheartening that most people in their fields are terrible at what they do. They say and do things that make no sense and then act like it is the consumers fault when it doesn't work out the way they said it would. It is sad that when an expert does something, in the end, the critical thinker knows more than the expert.
