  1. Smart strategies reduce the vulnerability of ourselves and others.
  2. Selfish strategies reduce our vulnerability but increase the vulnerability of others.
  3. Masochistic strategies increase our vulnerability but reduce the vulnerability of others.
  4. Stupid strategies increase the vulnerability of ourselves and others.
Voltaire, who I’ve been quoting a lot lately, at about 30 (painting by Nicolas de Largillière). “The only way to comprehend what mathematicians mean by Infinity is to contemplate the extent of human stupidity.”
