"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

The Stupendously Ugly Simpson Bowles Commission Crawls Out from Under a Rock

Well folks--you knew this was coming. That hideous, reptilian visage of Alan Simpson suddenly is befouling television screens everywhere daily now. (As Goya has so piquantly remarked some people's faces belong behind their trousers.) It is quite telling that he is the anointed darling of our financial and hence media establishment. (I respectfully decline to sully these pages with that personage's image out of respect for the delicate feelings of the fairer sex. Be forewarned.)

This brings to mind the debate between Abba Lerner and Lyndon LaRouche wherein the oh so very liberal Lerner opined that if Germany had carried out the austerity of Hjalmar Schacht then "Hitler would not have been necessary." You see, giving the devil his due, so to speak, is quite clearly the equivalent to insanely attempting to collect on the worthless "gambling debts" of the City of London and Wall Street so quaintly called derivative securities at the expense of killing off the "useless eaters" and igniting WWIII.... Isn't it?
