I encourage you to read the book – either by Amazon or torrent. Some decent points:
- Nearly everyone investing in Madoff’s ventures were certain that he was doing something slightly illegal to make consistent, high returns. No one assumed that it was a hoax, just illegal gains (which is partly their fault).
- Bernie had quite a few mistresses all over the world. His wife merely had them watched closely, and did not really do anything to stop Bernie’s affairs.
- Ruth blames the Gentiles for the exposure of their Ponzi scheme.
It’s entertaining, if not really sad, to read about all the abuses and crimes that Bernie Madoff got away with. He suffers from narcissism and pathological lying. He’s incredibly callous about the people he hurt, even calling them “idiots” and “failures” for falling for his scheme. Furthermore, he still thinks he’s largely innocent, as if our free Capitalistic society makes what he did legal somehow. Really, really sad.
Also, I have it from a local prophet that the Great Zombie Invasion is to start in 2010. If so, I do believe the plan on IRC was that we all meet up in Colorado and try to survive.
