The Unsimple Truth

Quote of the week:

The Searcher: that's what happens when you try to sum up complex issues in a single sentence. You end up getting it mostly wrong

I find this to be so true. Over and over again I see the in the media. When people use an analogy to explain a complex situation they leave most of the truth on the table. This frustrates me when I see people try to make things simple that are not simple. I think it is lazy thinking. This usually leads to bad decision making. One of the problems is that whoever makes the mistake of summing up a complex issue in a single sentence and gets it wrong, they usually do not face any consequence.
