This goes along with my Irrational Guide to Avoiding E. Disease.
1. Obsession is important: complicated thoughts.
2. If you can go to it, you can go past it: prove you're there, and you can prove you're beyond there: one of the tragedies of the 1960's.
3. Government corruption is either-or: it can be good or bad. Controlling corruption should take account of the motivations, unless taking account of motivations is corrupting.
4. Throw a few wrenches in the system and millions will thank you. Government is sometimes its own worst enemy. But this rule only emerges at the point of maddening complexity.
5. Be simple, and complexity will follow.
