Lo mas cómodo – The easiest way

Verá, Dr. Stadler, la gente no quiere pensar, y cuanto mayores son sus problemas, menos quiere pensar, pero instintivamente sabe que debería y seguirá a quien le ofrezca una justificación para no pensar. Alguien que convierta su pecado, su debilidad y su culpa, en una virtud de gran altura intelectual.

You see, Dr. Stadler, people don´t want to think, and the deeper they get into trouble, the less they want to think. But by some sort of instinct, they feel that they ought and it makes them feel guilty. So they´ll bless and follow anyone who gives them a justification for not thinking. Anyone who makes a virtue -a highly intellectual virtue- out of what they know to be their sin, their weakness and thei guilt.
