"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

Moloch Incarnate Walks Among Us

Lord Russell: "War, as I remarked a moment ago, has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove effective. If a Black Death could spread throughout the world once in every generation, survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. There would be nothing in this to offend the conscience of the devout or to restrain the ambition of nationalists. The state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant, but what of it? Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people’s."

Russell thus presaged the existence of the moral equivalent of black holes. Sucking all the light and decency out of humanity...

And today with baited breath we watch as "the markets" are cheered as governments hurry to make compacts to efficiently immiserate their sick and elderly.
