The Hacker’s Diet starts with this passage:
There’s an old Wall Street Tale: a tyro asks an old-timer, “How do you make money in the market?”
The wise man answers, “Nothing could be simpler: buy low, sell high“. The beginner asks, “How can I learn to do that?”. The sage responds, “Ahhh… that takes a lifetime.”
Simple doesn’t mean easy.
Probably this is how Democracies work too.
