"The mind is a compact, multiply connected thought mass with internal connections of the most intimate kind. It grows continuously as new thought masses enter it, and this is the means by which it continues to develop."

Bernhard Riemann On Psychology and Metaphysics ca. 1860

"It is clear that the minds are the most important part of the universe, and that everything was established for their sake; that is, in choosing the order of things, the greatest account was taken of them; all things being arranged in such a way that they appear the more beautiful the more they are understood."

G. W. Leibniz

Con Men: Pure and Simple

The recent brouhaha over Newt Gingrich's remark that Obama is a con man with  Kenyan anti colonialist mentality is of course roundly being rebuked. The truth however is just this. Both of them are con men. They are like two mean dogs fighting over the same bone. Their masters: a certain class of financial oligarch. Whether it be George Soros or Ludwig Von Mises is of little import. To speak in the language they will understand: Bow wow. (With due acknowledgment to Mr Poe's similarly stated view upon Carlyle's opus.)
