Subject: RE: Folk Wisdom
Interesting. I have just posted on the Tony Benn tribute post. I used to be one he asked those questions of, face to face... (I chaired an NHS body in his constituency.)

In another thread, I quoted Voltaire who gave this particular nugget of folk wisdom-

"Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities."
