Personal Quote:

[on 'false' ideas and reality] You get trapped by this. Trapped by a false idea. That's what I was trying to describe in The Power of Nightmares: The Rise of the Politics of Fear (2004). Once you get trapped by your imagination, you think the worst and therefore you have to plan for the worst. It becomes a self-fulfilling thing. [2005] See more »
