could use some help shooting down scott adams.

i have a trumpkin in my life who pretty much hangs on scott adams every word.
i have absorbed a couple of brief snippets, and my ears started bleeding.
he was blathering about how common it is for large numbers of people to believe things that arent true.

failed predications particularly appreciated, as this seems to be part of his draw.
good twitter critics also good.

please spare me looking at any more of this dreck than necessary.

1. Well, it is true that large numbers of people do believe things that aren't true...

Any untrue things in particular bugging you?

3. Do you mean the Dilbert Cartoonist?

This guy thinks everyone on the left is hypnotized because they don't like Trump. He puts himself on as some sort of expert in hypnosis. Sometimes his cartoons are funny, but I wouldn't hold him out as an expert in anything other than drawing Dilbert. To me he thinks he knows something that the rest of us can't see. I did find an article, but maybe you already saw this?

Good luck!

5. How to win friends and influence....

ugh. when I was studying cabala, there was this consciousness around the notion that manipulating people to work against their own best interest and better judgment was wrong. Evil, even. Like, didn't Charles Manson read that book and use it as a map for his own agenda?

It sounds like Scott Adams has truly become the pointy-haired boss.
