I believe that deceit and self deception play a disproportinate role in human-generated disasters, including misguided wars, international affairs more gnerally, the collapse of civilizations, and state affairs, including disastrous social, political and economic policies and miscarriages of justice.

underdevelopment of the social sciences.
I believe that processes of self deception are important in limiting the
achievement of individuals.
