is crazy wisdom?
Crazy wisdom is,
of course, the opposite of conventional wisdom. It is
wisdom that deliberately
swims against the current order to avoid being swept along in the
numbing wake of bourgeois compromise;
wisdom that flouts
taboos in order to undermine their power;
wisdom that evolves
when one, while refusing to avert one's gaze from the sorrows and
injustices of the world, insists on joy in spite of everything;
wisdom that embraces
risk and eschews security;
wisdom that turns
the tables on neurosis by lampooning it;
the wisdom of
those who neither seek authority nor willingly submit to it.
