More on oblique strategies

There is an anecdote that goes something like this… Bertrand Russell had just given a lecture on solipsism and had asked for questions, and an audience member piped up and said “I’m so glad you’re a solipsist because I am one too”. So it is with much chagrin and weltschmerz that I must report that upon holding forth on the use of oblique strategies as a cognitive technique to get you out of puddle thinking, especially when one finds oneself in a toxic authoritarian nexus with victim blaming gammons telling you with extreme prejudice what you should be thinking and believing, what is permitted to understand (a priori) and what isn’t…

That a voice form the audience piped up and said “Well, that’s your fault for using oblique strategies”.
