A Quandary

Even though I have many problems with Ezra Pound, this observation of his (taken in isolation) seems right:
There is no use talking to the ignorant about lies, for they have no criteria.
Thanks to Attempts, where you also find a reference to the text in which the claim is found.

I wasn't going to say this, but I must: "The trouble with the ignorant is, of course, that they don't know that they belong to the ignorant and thus go around quoting Ezra Pound." That's what makes this post a quandary.
