“Paranoia” is a personal life story constructed of memoirs in the form of short essays. It reveals my primitive complexes, inmost emotions and cracked dreams. A tale about an escape from the elemental impulses and social cliches through a journey. A path that rambles between the unbearable hypocrisy of the sentiment-free society, an self-destructive self-denial and an awe of the natural insanity.

At its core Mammon essentially is a critique of The Secret. That is despite its much broader context. Why then read a book about what many, including Deepak Chopra, refer to as ridiculous?

This is particularly relevant given the global economic crisis.

This installment argues that "The Secret" is emblematic of the greater social milieu we are finding ourselves in at this time. For this reason I isolated it as a particularly good example of how similar frauds are conveyed. It shows how easily we may unknowingly give away our power to quacks and con-men. That's if we fail to think critically, instead to abandon our sanity to reckless delusion.
