I have two theories which are not mutually exclusive. One is the religion business. People really, really hate their religion being criticized. It's as though you've said they had an ugly face, they seem to identify personally with it. There is a historical attitude that religion is off-limits to criticism.Не, неправильные теории. Мы только социальные службы находим угрожающими, (forcing religion on your children is as bad as child abuse), а про ясность и понятность-то, безусловно, мели Емеля, твоя неделя.
Also, some people find clarity threatening. They like muddle, confusion, obscurity. So when somebody does no more than speak clearly it sounds threatening.
На меня больше всего повлияли "Капитал" Маркса и "Общая теория занятости, процента и денег" Кейнса. И, боюсь, будут влиять до самой смерти.
