    Never underestimate the power of blunt self-awareness. Is it just me, or could Jesus have used some of Ahab’s clarity.

    So, if the ends justify the means, is rationality justified by insanity? And if so, is insanity not also a means as well as an end –a means to rationality? So that insanity is also justified by rationality? And therefore insanity the path to every increasing rationality?
