H.G. Wells Quote @ Expert Knowledge

A young Winston Churchill wrote to H.G. Wells, ” Nothing would be more fatal than for the government of states to get into the hands of the experts. Expert knowledge is limited knowledge: and the unlimited ignorance of the plain man who knows only what hurts is a safer guide, than any vigorous direction of a specialised character. Why should you assume that all except doctors, engineers, etc, are drones or worse?”
