  1. Be silent and listen: have you recognized your madness and do you admit it? Have you noticed that all your foundations are completely mired in madness? Do you not want to recognize your madness and welcome it in a friendly manner? You wanted to accept everything. So accept madness too. Let the light of your madness shine, and it will suddenly dawn on you. Madness is not to be despised and not to be feared, but instead you should give it life.
    – Carl Jung, The Red Book

    An individual has the right to express himself or herself even if he or she behaves irrationally; to demonstrate his or her insanity.
    – Muammer Gaddafi, The Green Book

    1. Thank you Cabrogal. Your insightful comment is much appreciated and very informative. Jung has a very encouraging approach to madness and Colonel Gaddafi’s comment is very liberating! I think it’s time to accept my madness and f*** everyone else. (You see the problem there, I used astericks)


      1. I just discovered that although we never had the BBC program here we did produce our own rip-off. What’s more we exported it to the UK. And I’d always thought Neighbours was the ultimate act of revenge against our former imperial overlords.

      2. Benign, innocent and sweet, these lazy girls just wanted to sleep. It wasn’t like they were out robbing, mugging and slashing, causing trouble and mouthing off. They were actually READING, maybe learning something and minding their own business to boot. If Mr. Slumber hadn’t been on Children’s T.V, he would have had something different in mind for them.


      3. We’re talking the 1980s here. Reagan, Thatcher, the dawn of neo-liberalism. Robbing, mugging and slashing shows initiative and enterprise. It contributes to the GDP. Sleeping is strictly for slackers and scroungers. Maggie and Ronnie both got by on less than four hours per night. Never mind that inadequate sleep is known to aggravate dementia. Who needs a mind when you’ve got money and power?

  2. Yeah, Maggie on four hours a night haunts me lately because that’s what I live off now, when I don’t nick my husbands amitriptyline. Didn’t know Ronnie also did four hours. They were soul mates in a way. Heard that she made tea for her cabinet ministers regularly, most meetings. She poured it, put in milk and sugar. She was mother, every time.
