"Complexity" - The Last Refuge of Ego (and Hubris)

Ego and hubris are in plain sight whenever anybody argues that "complexity" has made the world unpredictable.

The world was NEVER predictable.  Anybody who believes differently focused only on risk and not at all on uncertainty.

I've said it before, and I will say it again: the world is no more complex today than it ever was before.  And humanity is just as simple as it always has been.  When the simple human meets the complex world, the simple human fakes it.
