above-average creativity

that is absolutely the most terrifying disease, one we should all fear and medicate into oblivion!

how can we hope for the triumph of the banal and victory of the mediocre unless we scythe these 'tall poppies' down to the level of the honest weeds that thrive around our ankles?

get treatment early and often, until your creativity comes down to a readout tolerably close to zero. only then you too can raise the proud banner of sanity and feel normal.

a rapid jump from vonnegut straight into huxley world...

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
