Where do bad ideas come from?

This is a foreign policy-oriented article and I don't think it exactly
answers the question, but he does ask an important question, I think:

Walt is a professor of international affairs at Harvard.

He also talks about the "domino theory," which I mentioned a while
ago. It's a simple easily-visualized theory, which is why it sticks
around. It has a record of being seriously wrong several times in
recent history. If fact, if you have a bad idea, then you realize it,
you can always say, "Well, at least it's not the domino theory."
