It Is Difficult to Get a Man to Understand Something When His Salary Depends Upon His Not Understanding It – Quote Investigator
In 1934 some California papers published installments from his forthcoming book about the ill-fated campaign titled “I, Candidate for Governor, and How I Got Licked”:

I used to say to our audiences: “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”

....In 1893 a newspaper in Lincoln, Nebraska printed a thematically related statement written by populist politician William Jennings Bryan:

It is useless to argue with a man whose opinion is based upon a personal or pecuniary interest; the only way to deal with him is to outvote him.

Plans to revived West Florissant Ave in Ferguson, Dellwood, Jennings devastated by 2014 civil unrest include Great Streets plan, pedestrian-oriented streetscape |
Along the stretch of West Florissant Avenue in Dellwood that was ground zero for the civil unrest that grabbed the nation’s attention in 2014, two conspicuously vacant lots on the busy corridor still serve as reminders of the damage from almost five years ago. . . .

They’re also working to implement the West Florissant Avenue Great Streets Master Plan. It was developed using a federal grant through the region’s planning arm, the East-West Gateway Council of Governments. But when it came out in 2014, it was largely overshadowed by the events in Ferguson and Dellwood that year.

The new zoning codes should also help turn a heavily “auto-oriented” corridor into a more pedestrian-friendly streetscape as envisioned in the plan, Patrick said.

Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III called the West Florissant corridor “a big asphalt mess.”

“It’s not inviting and it’s not pedestrian-friendly and it doesn’t really lure anybody who’s looking to develop there,” he said.

MoBikeFed comment: Pedestrian oriented streets and a Complete Streets approach to transportation corridors is common today across Missouri in nearly every community and neighborhood that wants to improve quality of life for citizens.

It is worth remember that as recently as 2001, Missouri did not have a single Complete Streets policy. Designing streets 100% around the needs of motor vehicle traffic was the norm.

This design philosophy brought about hundreds of examples of the type of street design one sees on the current Florissant Avenue--four lane road, high speed limit, no shoulder or sidewalk, no safe place to bicycle save for the few brave souls willing to take the lane with 40-50 mph traffic.

Now communities all around Missouri--from the largest cities to the smallest rural communities--are looking at a Complete Streets approach, because it builds better, more connected communities and more sustainable commercial and living spaces.

Today, now fewer than 42 Missouri communities have adopted Complete Streets policies and many more are following Complete Streets or (similar) Great Streets or Livable Streets guidelines on the roads, streets, and transportation corridors.
