The indispensability of reason does not imply that individual people are always rational or are unswayed by passion and illusion. It only means that people are of reason, and that a community of people who choose to perfect this faculty and to exercise it openly and fairly can collectively reason their way to sounder conclusions in the long run. As Lincoln observed, you can fool all of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.
And so, at the end of our tale on sports is a message for economists. Perhaps we should stop insisting that all models have rational foundations. If our aim is to develop models that describe how actual people behave, we need to focus on how people actually make decisions. To take any other course of action in the face of all the evidence that has been presented is simply.. Okay, it's simply irrational. David J. Berri and Martin B. Schmidt
I do care. That's why I hunt them. But if you've seen what I have, then you learn to deal with the murders and disappearances. You learn to push it aside and move on. The other life isn't here anymore. This new world has its own rules. Survival of the fittest is one of them. If you're hoping for kindness and pity, don't hold your breath.
