    Default A good day for deluded charlatans

    With the closure of Namawinelake, the gombeenomic stranglehold on public policy in this country has tightened it's grip further.

    Nothing must be allowed to rock the boat as Ireland "returns the markets", as crushed europhile vassal state. The financial security of the gombeen parasite class depends on it.

    The problems are not unique to Ireland as this cartoon shows (Nassim Taleb vs mainsteam economic loons)

    I like how you're using the closure of a blog which dealt an awful lot with the folly of assumption to make an assumption as to why it was closed. It's very meta. I'm guessing the author would find it amusing.

    It's sad it's done. There's no reason stated on the blog as to why it's closing down, the articles are staying up and the contacts remain protected. It seems foolish to offer statements of fact as to who (if anyone) is behind the author's decision to close it down.

    Can a charlatan be deluded? Would someone not either be a charlatan or delusional, but are the two not mutually exclusive?
    You'll never go broke appealing to the lowest common denominator.

    I have not made an assumption about why it has closed down.

    We do know who benefits, though.

    But then they're not charlatans, they're just stupid or delusional. By definition, to be a charlatan requires intent.

    Well not necessarily; it is possible to knowingly be a charlatan but also be deluded about other things.

    Nama Wine Lake did a lot more to expose well-connected corruption in this country than this site ever did.

    This is a sad loss for those wishing to be informed as to what is happening in Ireland.

    Now all we are left with is lies from the Sindo and other vested interest media outlets.
