#Count [10]

#Count _all_ the (wannabe) Emperors with "new clothes." It may not be that self evident.

I am thorn: how much should we show how it's done? how much should we let you analyze thoroughly yourself?

Take a CEO of a large EV car company. Measure the influence he has, from his own companies' stock to other unrelated topics, always of importance. He's done some good, and even some great, work. Yet, the outlandish statements and the attempts to lend credibility to himself from fame and richness on issues of no expertise whatsoever are easily tricking a lot of unsuspecting people. 

Take further any other similar attempts. Those most of us barely ever actually see through. Whether a politician says to a few doctors in a televised live show from the White House "if you could try to put the light or disinfectant inside the body" or whether a podcaster pretends to be merely asking questions of "experts," the techniques are all at least as old as when the Mayor (whose name we don't remember) had Socrates poisoned "democratically" for helping youth learn how to think. 

The task may seem daunting, at first, but with training and perseverance you may get better and better at it. 

One great explains it with these simple words:

 "everyone has a _hidden_ agenda." 

Yes. Everyone. All the time. There are no exceptions. 

Dedicated to the memory of Donald T Campbell and Paul H Hammond.🙏

Follow in the footsteps of the great. 
Look inside.
