Eric Hoffer – The Tyranny of Intellectuals

In 1967, government left a small footprint on the lives of individuals. In an interview from that year by CBS’s Eric Sevareid, longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer praises how America is a country for the common man and warned about the corruptibility of the all-knowing intellectuals (like environmentalists) who seek to become puppet-masters.

Faith in a holy cause is to a considerable extent a substitute for the lost faith in ourselves. ~ Eric Hoffer in The True Believer
