Zersetzung Vicious Loop

The most dreaded surveillance agency

Was as we know very well was the Stasi

They developed a truly diabolical system

Naively they did name it and called it

Zersetzung as bad luck would have it

It means some say like decomposition

While some say it is biodegradation

Of living human beings as try to live

Not the natural of course as you guess

It may be Human Artificial Intelligence

Later on it got integrated with the other

Artificial Intelligence to reduce clutter

It’s open season for them out in the open

Fair game to everyone, nary a just token

Why do you use it, it being diabolical?

Well, it is for us the most antithetical

We only ever use it as the last resort

For you used it against us all the time

That’s not true at all, and it’s a crime

You used it first in your very prime

We only use it because you used it

Now you are lying it was in your kit

You originated it and used it all the while

You were the ones who sat on its pile

For as long as we can go back in history

Our resort to it is just very recent story

We never used it you are peddling lies

You are dealing in conspiracy theories

We are not shape shifting reptilians, Icke

Never mind that we use it only for a cause

You just use it for your egotistic advance

Don’t hide behind your high moral ground

Your true reasons we have actually found

So don’t try to bluff us and stop doing this

We will then also refrain from the practice

No you won’t and you know that very well

It is embedded in your very way of life

You thrive on the whole mankind’s strife

Don’t you dare blame us for your crimes

We have proved this many many times

It’s no use talking to you, waste of time

Same here you sure don’t give it a dime

So it went on till very end of the times

Crime that encompasses all other crimes

Compared to it others are walks in the park

I am no prophet just made some rhymes

A Casual Theory of Literal Insanity

Abnormal Psychology has never interested me much. I have always been more interested in Normal Psychology, so much so, that at one point I was planning to write a book titled Elements of Normal Psychology. Like a lot else that I planned to do, that didn’t work out.

A recent post on Digg.com, which tells us “what the Internet is thinking”, has, however, inspired me to propose a theory of insanity. Again, I am much less interested in literal (clinical) insanity than metaphorical insanity. The former, I think, is a phenomenon of little relevance to the problems of the world as clinically insane people can do little harm to general public, relatively speaking.

What terrifies me is metaphorical insanity, that is, insanity of (collectives of) normal people, which is infinitely more dangerous than any literal individual insanity.

Since I can’t do the tougher job of providing a theory of metaphorical insanity, I content myself here with providing a theory of literal insanity. A casual one at that.

The Digg.com post was initially titled:

Dog Finally Catches Its Tail, Has An Existential Crisis

Sometime later, it got changed to something along the lines of:

Dog Finally Catches Its Tail, Breaks its Brain

Then it again mysteriously changed back to:

Dog Finally Catches Its Tail, Has An Existential Crisis

Perhaps they realized they had gone too far in their regular Dog Whistle Distraction posting this time.

It is the middle version of the title (that has disappeared now) which inspired me to come up with a theory, with a little help from the movie Wag the Dog.

Here goes:

The dog wags the tail because it is smarter than the tail. If the tail were smarter, it would wag the dog.

The state of world can be explained to a great degree by this Wag the Dog theory, i.e., the tail is smarter than the dog. Therefore, as long as the dog does not realize that the tail is wagging it, it remains (clinically) sane. When, however, the dog finally catches its tail and finds out that it was being wagged by the tail, it goes through an existential crisis. This crisis eventually Breaks its Brain. This is what is called clinical insanity.

Therefore, to retain your health and well-being, it is highly advisable to remain blissfully ignorant of who or what is wagging you, as in the case of tail wagging the dog.
