Wizard's First Rule: "People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone
will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a
lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might
be true. People's heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of
it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only
rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are
confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool."

"Because of the Wizard's First Rule, the old wizards created Confessors, and
Seekers, as a means of helping find the truth, when the truth is important
enough. Darken Rahl knows the Wizard's Rules. He is using the first one. People
need an enemy to feel a sense of purpose. It's easy to lead people when they
have a sense of purpose. Sense of purpose is more important by far than the
truth. In fact, truth has no bearing in this. Darken Rahl is providing them
with an enemy, other than himself, a sense of purpose. People are stupid; they
want to believe, so they do."
