The Diagnosis and Treatment of Ideological Possession – Foundation for Economic Education

It’s not the content of your belief that makes you dangerous, it’s the way you believe it.

Robin Koerner

“Any ideology has the potential to be deadly when advanced by those who are so sure of their own knowledge and moral outlook that they would impose it against the protestations of those affected by it. To the ideologically possessed, the imposition can always be justified because “it’s the right thing to do,” “it will start working if we keep at it,” “the complaints are coming from bad people,” and so on. (Yes. The logic is as circular as it seems.)”
