This episode features ideas intolerable to the ego. From George W Bush bombing the Middle East, to the bloke in the office who complains about everyone else being rubbish, we are all paranoid. But is this such a bad thing? Is it better to understand your paranoia, or live in perpetual defence? Who should take responsibility for their own paranoia…? It's not me, it's you.

We discuss:

Anxiety from within and without.

How the subconscious creates a paranoid perspective.

Why this is comforting/cathartic.

The process of recognition.

Individual and societal paranoia.


Resentment of institutions.

Quotes from 'Paranoia' by David Bell, which is an excellent short book.
