Jack Barnes was a yuppie bullshit artist with a slightly different career
trajectory than other yuppie bullshit artists.  What makes him interesting
is how much better, smarter, more serious, and more honest people deferred
to him or to those of their number who were deferring to him.

People often find it easier to shirk off the responsibilities of
intelligent, critical thinking by making the decision to trust one guru or
another.  Sadly, it's often the last real decision they make until what they
have to offer has been sucked dry, after which they are cast aside . . . .
