“Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t.”
Nothing explains the power of sunk cost and the limitation of judging better than the above idiomatic expression.
How do you know the devil you don’t know is a devil when you don’t know them?
How do you know the devil you know is better when you have no basis for comparison?
We unwittingly design a system that prioritises the familiar over possibilities, thereby choosing limitations over freedom.
