Behold: the self-incriminating proposition!

Hysterical little video clip sent by my brother. It's a guy in an audience during some debate. He asks Deepak Chopra (some sort of new age guru, from what I gather) whether or not he had earlier stated that all beliefs are "cover-up for insecurity". Rather, he asks it in a particular way, so as to show up the paradoxical nature of the proposition, if taken literally.

Hilarity ensues.

How would Chopra respond? Probably " I meant only certain SORTS of beliefs are cover-ups for insecurity. Not the belief that some beliefs are cover-ups..not that one! That belief is a sign of my keen insight..dontcha' know.

Yeah. Whatever, Maharishi.Write another book.
