Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/12/16

Non Sequitur

You can sway a thousand men by appealing to their prejudices quicker than you can convince one man by logic.”   —   Robert Heinlein

(People like Donald Trump – and tea partiers and neocons  – use this knowledge to their advantage, while some of us keep tilting at windmills, hoping that some will the see the light we’re trying to shine.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Amen, UR, and cheers to Robert Heinlein and his ability to GROK human nature!

    You’re quite correct, as is the quote, but the picture doesn’t quite match. The two arrows for answers should be, “Wrong, but agrees with you in every way” and “Right, but you’ll have to change your mind”.

    LOL! I know the cartoon only loosely applies to the quote. But, I’d seen a version of this cartoon within the week, and it stuck in my head. Combine that with Trump’s assertion that climate change is hoax invented by the Chinese, and it felt like a good fit to me. I guess I could’ve looked up cartoons related to “law and order”, or the “Mexican wall”, but the “complex, but correct vs. easy, but wrong” one just resonated for me.

    Thanks for commenting, Mercutio!
