John Derbyshire And The Riddle of the Anglos

THE ANGLO SELF ANALYSIS – THE RIDDLE OF TRUTH.

—“I’m torn between thinking its a shame that we’re so stubborn that we require a way to prove we were right all along rather than just accepting it based on favorability of outcomes, and thinking it’s awe-inspiring that we are so dedicated to truth that we would likely change what we’ve assumed was correct if we were able to develop a reliable prediction model that shows us to be in error.”—@John Derbyshire
