    Gilbert Ling might be among the geniuses, but he doesn't have a wikipedia entry.

    I often get accused of being overly paranoid. Fair enough. But what I do know is that not only could the world use more geniuses, we could also use a much more paranoid populace.

    My opinion is that extremely gifted people, capable of shifting the paradygm for humanity, end up being co-opted, discredited or otherwise neutralized by TPTB/the system/the man (whatever). I also think that some get their gift or their ability to do something with it stolen by a riduculously poor and undermining education system, LCD mainstream culture and the brainwashing that goes along with it, destructive nutritional advice and BigAg's involvement in that, and a medical establishment that pretty much operates (outside of trauma care) as an entity of BigPHarma.
