Everywhere, the people would rather fight each other than make a common stand against the central tyranny and the Empire rules without having to exert force. In other words, one ruling class is replaced by another—sometimes by one that is more efficient and therefore still more capable of maintaining itself—while the poor and downtrodden remain poor and downtrodden or become even worse off. We may disagree with them in one way or another, but we are as likely to be wrong in our disbelief as they in their belief.

Concerning his parent and Siblings, We know a handful of factors, nor more. His only son, Raych Seldon, is known to have been adopted, but how that Came about is not known. Concerning his wife, we only Know that she existed. Clearly, Seldon wanted to a cipher Except where psychohistory was concerned.
It is as though he felt– Or wanted it to be felt—that he did not live, he merely psychohistorified. Be aware of your surroundings. What is important is what people will or will not believe can be done.
I find it impossible to believe that there would be such unreasoning feeling against harmless people. It can all pass right under your nose and you wouldn’t smell a thing because it doesn’t affect you.

Seldon is a mathematician like you and his head can sometimes be in the clouds. You must understand that. I am a historian, however. There are peculiar and almost ritualistic hatreds that have no rational justification and that can have their serious historical influence. You say you disapprove, which makes you a nice person, and then you can go about your own business and not be interested anymore. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
