    I know of many examples of small samples of opinion contrary to
    the general view from which correct conclusions can be drawn. In
    my own case, I think back on a number of individual encounters in
    the Soviet Union over the years whose significance I refused to
    believe, because I did not want to think that that society was
    fundamentally on the wrong track.
