Mind's Eye Re: Insanity

On insanity, I'm struck by the difference between what we might find walking about and the fungible numbers of our banking and government kleptocracies, with prostitution, drugs and gambling included in GDP.  Andrew has made something of this point with his 'time walks' in the past.  Are our economic and political systems esoteric or some kind of mad hoax?  If we used the same GDP calculation we had 20 years ago, GDP to government debt ratios would be over 100% everywhere.  I think the truth is we are being hoaxed and they want us to feel insane as we walk around in our destroyed cities and towns.

What ME lacks is enough people who will have a go with ideas.  This is true across most blogs.  What you want are commentators better than the original post used to kick something off.  As for staying on topic, you manage to come up with a title here that has little to do with what you post.  Who cares if some sort of non-naff exchange takes place?

Insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result. 
There are always some flashes within insanity that defy its own definition.
I think I am going insane. I keep checking this group for some flashes of thought motivation, but those flashes seem to be very rare.
What I do find is a pile of bickering and self gratification.
We are on the internet throwing ideas around, and if our ideas are "copied", then we should be happy.
Perhaps I am hooked on this very small group of so called thinkers who every once in a while throw around ideas that make me think and learn.
It is like finding a diamond. When you find one, you want to return to find some more.
Maybe a part of the problem is that we all get off the track of the discussion too easily.
Perhaps the main role of a moderator  is not to sensor what is regarded as "spam", but rather to keep people from derailing a discussion.
