A fool believes that an extraordinary intellect says extraordinary things, and thus one has only to wait a short time before he says something extraordinarily stupid.

Given the number of extraordinary intellects who, in the twentieth century, subscribed to Nazism, Bolshevism and other noxious socialist creeds, might not the fool have a point? Unless I am guilty of a contradiction in terms: if the number was high, perhaps they were by definition not extraordinary at all?
