ABSTRACT
The article discusses about paranoia. An advertisement is presented that came out in the newspaper "The Village Voice," from a retired lady about making contacts with her. Paranoid minds make of civilization a baroque and sardonic romance: it will rhyme the most terrible midnight-time visions. Lunacy is associated with some physical sign. According to the author paranoia can have a complex etiology: trauma, chemical dysfunction. But it grows best on a rich petri culture. Paranoia is a national resource.
