The lunatic has finally taken over the asylum.

Today I learned a valuable lesson, and I'm going to benefit from it.

I realised that the true fantasy of this place is not in any way sexual - it's psychological. Milgram's work is evidenced here by the utter willingness of otherwise rational adults to abrogate common sense, logic and independent thought in order to subjugate themselves to the psychoses of others and lose contact with reality altogether. I find that intriguing on an intellectual level but horrifying on a personal level as it basically validates the worst behaviour as best. In other words, here is where the most powerless and neurotic can take control in a way they would never be able to in the real world, drawing others into their personal constructs. Here, even the most blatantly far-fetched lies are unquestioningly accepted as truths.

The positive aspect is this: if such people spend all their time here, caught up in their fantasy, it makes the real world a sweeter place for the rest of us.

Give me reality any day
