...we do not yet have the perspective of sufficient time to get over the prejudices and fashionabilities that influence our everyday behavior. We also tend to discount or oversimplify historical, sociological, and psychological aspects. We are too operational and too win-lose oriented. We come out simplistic and opinionated.

Leland Allen, quoted in Polywater, by Felix Franks.
