Boorstin is also the author of a very interesting quote.

From memory...

“Ignorance is rarely dangerous. The most destructive force in history has always been the illusion of knowledge.”

Not sure I agree with that anymore.

I think “calculated evil” might be number one.

I don’t recall that one, but it sounds as if it came from “The Creators.”
