Kinda like how you on the left have used that quote on those who desire security but don't deserve it, which was actually about gun control in its full context.
No, Keynes didn't say that. He was quoting someone else to talk about how they were wrong. It wasn't "distilled", it was disingenuously shortened. That's the opposite. If you admitted when you were mistaken at least a few times, you might have a bit more credibility.

Frankly, if you actually understood Keynes remotely, you would have known the quote was suspect to begin with.
