    Of what I've read (very little), he seems reasonable to me. He just likes to use colorful (and sometimes confusing) language.
    Violence is never the right answer, unless used against heathens and monsters.

    My understanding is that he went insane from syphilitic paresis, not from his ideas.

    "General paresis, also known as general paralysis of the insane or paralytic dementia, is a neuropsychiatric disorder affecting the brain, caused by late-stage syphilis. GPI was originally considered a psychiatric disorder when it was first scientifically identified around the nineteenth century, as the patient usually presented with psychotic symptoms of sudden and often dramatic onset."

    Aside from what happened after developing this condition, I don't consider him insane at all.

    As you are now, so once was I.
    As I am now, so will you be.
    Prepare for Death & Follow Me."

    Thank you, I've been meaning to say something too. This cultural touchstone of 1999 shall not stand!

    That is exactly what option 2 is for....it's undoubtable that he did go at least a little insane.

    Empty your mind. Be formless. Shapeless. Like water. Water can flow, or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

    If insane is just deviation from the norm, then yes he was insane. Still right about everything.
