But if I were paranoid, everyone would say I was insane! Everyone else being paranoid is just playing it safe/hedging their bets.
It’s really hard to catch a break.
What if I am incredibly powerful, and all that power drove me insane, you know, like what happened to my friend Smeagol? And now, being insane, I don’t remember that I am powerful nor how to use my power to crush my enemies!
