Wisdom of Crowds?

James Surowiecki explains and elaborates with illustrations the wisdom of crowds in his book. But are crowds - people at large - all that wise?

- Believe in God and ghosts, existence of neither is proved
- Run after things that are sure not gives any meaning  - say, money
- Not sure why we are and what actually could give us happiness
- End up hurting worst those that we love most
- Get taken by glib talk and ads - quite gullible
- So much insincerity in social relationships
- Say things that are liked rather than are

Need a new paradigm. But breaking free has a price.
