Why We Don’t Believe Prophets

Q: What was the epitaph on the hypochondriac’s tombstone?
A: “I told you I was sick!”
I happened to see a Facebook post from the George Gilder today. The post announced why Gilder is coming out of retirement at age 79.
(I rarely look at Facebook, but there’s flooding in my town today. Facebook is the best source for reports from the ground.)
I followed George Gilder closely for many years back in the mid-1990s.
