“Men Willingly Believe What They Wish to Believe” – Julius Caesar


“Fere libenter homines id quod volunt credunt.”

“Men willingly believe what they wish to believe.”

Conspiracy theories have been going on for more than a millennium. Indeed, people believe what they want to believe. No matter what evidence you put forth that can be verified about Hillary, there are people who just want her to win no matter what. On Alex Wagner’s show on MSNBC, one of her guest bluntly stated that both Bush presidencies were a failure and the ONLY successful Presidency was that of Bill Clinton.


I suppose the pretense that Republicans are for the rich bankers and the Democrats are for the poor is just one of those things people want to believe. They overlook the fact that Clinton repealed Glass-Steagall and ushered in the new age of Transactional Banking. They also refuse to look at her adviser, a former Goldman Sachs employee, and who are her top contributors? Ah – New York Bankers?

So yes, Julius Caesar was correct: People willingly believe only what they wish to believe.
