Example text

We can figure it out and act on it quickly. Most of us can master it, live through it. Complexity is another story. Understanding complex relationships or phenomena takes talent, time, and training. These are all luxuries confined to the very recent epoch, and to the very select few among us even today. These relationships among forces, factors, and theories are sometimes indirect and often undependable. You simply cannot count on finding foolproof answers or being able to employ them to better your living conditions.

In order to get others to do something, leaders, corporate managers, priests, city councilmen, and others in positions of authority de-complexify issues and events. They make nuance vanish and they blunt distinctions. Things then become black and white, yes or no, friend or foe. That makes them readily understood and easily actionable. People, on the whole, can then understand what is “out there” and what they must do about it. Intricate or elaborate issues may engage a minority of solitary thinkers, but they never send the masses to the barricades.

You don’t need to teach them or straighten them out. That’s the job of ministers, philosophers, mathematicians, and utopians. I give these all the support they need, and wish them well. But just by being logical, they aren’t making the world work their way. Unless they affect outcomes (the goal of becoming compelling), we don’t even remember their names, much less their arguments. Our Lives Are Illogical Consider the most life-altering decisions each of us makes—decisions like which religion to follow, which person to marry, where to work, what fields to pursue, and whether to have children or not.
