I think Martin Armstrong is a billiant man. He developed a computer program that models historical and current events, cycles of war, the flow of capital -- to predict with uncanny accuracy (it is said) events of all kinds, from social to market to political.

For not cooperating, he was thrown into federal prison for 10 years, at least some of that in solitary confinement.
