;-) Too funny! Once a lie has been believed for so long, the truth sounds insane.

    An economist acquaintance ventured into the cranks and crackpots when he suggested that Keynesian economics will always fail when not in harmony with nature's fiscal laws. Of course he was right but, that didn't stop him form being professionally ostracized. Patrons of religion often don't take well the proving false of their dogma (especially socialists = communists / fascists / etc.).
