On politics & democracy, people, including the talking heads on the TV & authors of satirical commentary, will often be wrong.

Nobody who’s thought about politics or democracy over the thousands of years that people have been thinking about democracy hasn’t come up against the fact that the people will often be wrong.” — author Harold Jacobson, in an interview with The Atlantic

Apparently Jacobson and the fawning press do not recognize their own fallibility. Can’t he (and they) too be wrong?
