09:25:41 jurov: In most groups the craziest person is in control. It starts because no one wants the problems that come from pissing off a crazy person. It’s just smarter and easier sometimes to let the crazy person have his or her way.
09:26:31 jurov: Cults are a good example of insanity being viewed as leadership. Suppose you’re not insane. Can insanity help you? The answer is yes, but you want to

11:09:29 kakobrekla: ftr when he joined this place, it was purely about business and so was he. later he was wrapping business in propaganda, which is tolerable, as the core is solid. now he is wrapping propaganda in business wrap, at which point it becomes intolerable for any reasonable mind.
