Learning from Psychotic Ranting . . .

I suppose the title for this blog post seems unlikely.

If ranting truly qualified as psychotic, whatever that means, learning anything valuable in the common world of our experience from it would likely have a low probability.

However, if the ranter merely self identifies as psychotic, he might use the exaggeration and overstatement of a “psychotic writing style” for both humor and emphasis, but still manage to relay a valuable and insightful message.

I believe that last paragraph gives a quick overview of The Mogambo Guru. His latest, “The Sole Inflation Creator” summarizes quite a bit of material and imparts a few truths most people don’t fully grasp. That lack of grasp allows the chicanery to continue.

However, just laying out truth to expose chicanery doesn’t usually entertain an audience, so the “psychotic ranting” flavors the message:

Alarmed, I can see that people are gathering up their things to leave just as I am getting started with my speech! Apparently, most people have already heard my patented, “Inflation is going to eat your guts out, and eat your children’s guts out, and eat your parent’s guts out, and you will all die a horrible death as a result!” speech. They have never believed me, and they know that I think that they are idiots because of it.

Big Money

Readers here may already have a reasonable conceptual grasp of money and what a central bank can do to corrupt it, but The Mogambo may still entertain them. Curious? Then read “The Sole Inflation Creator.”

Hi Tom –

Great blog! So this is where you hide out.

I’m not intentionally hiding.

I haven’t yet gotten all the coming sidebar items set-up the way I ultimately want them and the blogroll will grow, but … this is a start.

I also have moderation turned on for the initial posts from a new commenter while I get accustomed to Akismet (it appears to work very well). You should not have to wait to see your next comment appear. Sorry ’bout that.

I have that psychotic writing style. I can’t seem to help myself!
