The American left-wing group Moveon.org, flush from the recent Democratic electoral victory, is emailing out a survey to find out what it should do next.
The email says:
"We've always believed in the wisdom of crowds—the idea that all of us together are smarter and wiser than any one of us. The survey will only take a few minutes of your time but your answers—along with the answers of all the other MoveOn members—will show the way forward."
Hmmm, all of us together are smarter and wiser than any one of us. Interesting notion.
I guess that's why angry mobs are so wise.
