Five percenters 

Be the 1st to vote.

You’re in an exclusive club. Enjoy the isolation,and also enjoy the comradery here. 

What follows is a passage from Wilson’s 1967 postscript that strikes me as being not true, precisely, and yet true enough.

“In the Korean War the Chinese discovered that they could prevent the escape of American soldiers by segregating the “leader figures” and keeping them under heavy guard, and leaving the others without any guard at all. The leaders were always precisely five percent of the total number of soldiers. And it so happens that this figure holds good for most species of animals too. The “dominant majority” is always five percent.”
