Skin in the game - Hidden asymmetries in daily life - Nassim Nicholas Taleb

This quote was added by starbreaker
Society doesn't evolve by consensus, voting, majority, committees, verbose meetings, academic conferences, tea and cucumber sandwiches, or polling; only a few people suffice to disproportionately move the needle. All one needs is an asymmetric rule somewhere - and someone with soul in the game. And asymmetry is present in about everything.
