Karl German, was an American magician and lawyer, once said:
“Magic is the only honest profession. A magician promises to deceive you and he does.”
What does he mean by honest when we know very well that magicians deceive us all the time pulling tricks in front of our eyes making us look stupid.
What’s so honest about that?
For a while I didn’t understand what he meant.
But basically what he meant is that people are deceived all the time. The media deceives us, newspapers deceives us, politicians deceives us, advertisers deceives us, people deceive us all the time on social media.
The only difference is that magicians tell us that they will deceive us, and they do, everyone else doesn’t tell us, but they do.
