A Wise Saying – Part 115

To a child, to a savage, and to a Wall Street operator everything seems possible- hence their credulity.  Exactly the same is true of people who live in times of great uncertainty.  Fear and hope both heighten credulity.  Hence crooked politicians who will say anything to gain a vote usually wish to create a state of mind receptive to fantastic and absurd ideas by preaching  hope and also creating insecurity.
