From one Nassim Taleb

Trust none of what you hear, some of what you read, half of what you see goes an old trader adage.

As a trader and quant/mathematical statistician, I have been taught to take data seriously, trust nobody’s numbers, and avoid people naive enough to engage in policy based on lurid but questionable pictures of destruction: the fake picture of a dying child is something nobody can question without appearing to be an asshole.

As a citizen, I require that the designation “murderer” be determined in a court of law, not by Saudi-funded outlets?—?once someone is called a murderer or butcher, all bets are off.

I cannot believe governments and bureaucrats could be so stupid. But they are.”
