SWJ quote of 2012 (H/T French Defence Analysis Stphane Taillat)

Quote:
If you tell people the world is complicated, youre not doing your job as a social scientist. They already know its complicated. Your job is to distill it, simplify it, and give them a sense of what is the single [cause], or what are the couple of powerful causes that explain this powerful phenomenon. (Samuel Huntington son protg Fareed Zakaria)
