Be on guard against fatuousness

It’s hard to defend oneself against perpetual backstabbers who speak in classified cables or Aesopian junk. That’s why it’s important for all analysts to think about context and social forces for themselves.

I don’t know if I just saw evidence of a rumor or not, but I would say that during a campaign, one should realize that a card that would blow up in one’s face more than the other candidate’s face is not credible as something that got traded for a card only damaging oneself.
