Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

yes, I know I'm nuts....

I'm nuts. I know. I'm nuts because I'm not "sane". That's how nuts is defined - anything outside the bell curve of "sanity" is "insanity". Easy, yeah?

But the clever bastards don't actually define sanity. For instance, they'll diagnose you as "paranoid" without actually establishing beyond doubt whether your fears are valid or justified. Now, THAT's nuts, but don't tell THEM that, or you'll be guilty of another crime against the thought police.

So, what is sanity? Well, it has to do with the bell curve of normalcy of behaviour.
It's the democracy of psychology.

And we all know where democarcy's taking us, don't we?

It's taking us to wherever the majority wants to go. But what if, by an entirely different definition of sanity, the majority is nuts? Well then, under a psychological democracy, the lunatics get to run the asylum.... Does that resonate? Hmmm???

And what's sanity got to do with political democracy? Everything or nothing. Depends on how you define political sanity...

I am trying to think of some friends that I could classify as sane. Thankfully none come to mind, which is just as well, because, frankly, I think they would be bloody boring.

Anyway, the Blue Mountains are a great place to live for those not classified as 'sane' although it doesn't do much for house prices.

Ah, but those house prices are sky-rocketing, and soon the new ("sane") landlords will insist that the likes of us are given "bedspace" and naturally denied access to the assylum's computers, thereby effectively removing our "insane" and "dangerous" influence from the internet. A very "sane" solution. The best "sanity" money can buy...
