"The Most Costly Of All Follies..."

"The most costly of all follies is to believe passionately in the palpably not true. It is the chief occupation of mankind. The truth, indeed, is something that mankind, for some mysterious reason, instinctively dislikes. Every man who tries to tell it is unpopular, and even when, by the sheer strength of his case, he prevails, he is put down as a scoundrel."
- H.L. Mencken

I know, I know, "Oh, that could never happen here..."
