About it All, Part 10

"This is in the attitude of mind of the populace, that they have to have an answer and that a man [in politics] who gives an answer is better than a man who gives no answer, when the real fact of the matter is, in most cases, it is the other way around."

-- From The Meaning of It All: Thoughts of a Citizen Scientist, by Richard P. Feynman, Basic Books, New York, 1998, pp. 66.

The whole preceding rhetorical illustration about the two politicians being asked a farm question is even better than the above quote, but's it's rather lengthy.
