  Ginsberg's Law

  • You can't win.
  • You can't break even.
  • You can't even quit the game.

Corollaries:

Every philosophy that attempts to make life understandable is based on the negation of Ginsberg's Law. For example:

  • Capitalism is based on the assumption you can win.
  • Socialism is based on the assumption that you can break even.
  • Religion is based on the assumption that you can quit the game.
