Oh.... that's a very, very good one.

And you could imagine a one-to-one isomorphism between forms of insanity and forms of espionage (paranoia is counterintelligence, schizophrenics are double agents, psychopaths are operatives, and so on and so forth). Not really an original observation, but it's fun to picture an intelligence agency using one of the DSM editions as a human resources handbook).

Weaponized pathology is one of those tropes that has been near and dear to both our hearts for ... holy shit, quite some time now.

Working for the Laundry even provides extra bonus ways to do so.
