What would you do in the clutches of a madman, could you talk your way out of being murdered? I want to generate some deep thinking here because it is something that interests me. Imagine that you have been held captive by a psycho for three weeks. He hasn’t hurt you but you are sure he plans to kill you. You suspect that by killing, it is the only way he can have contact with others and this alleviate deep problems rooted in loneliness and inferiority. Again what would you say to talk him out of it, supposing that it is possible?
