Deliberately misleading ideas

As described by Bob Johansen in his book about foresight, Herman Kahn interestingly use this disclaimer in his reports: "some of the ideas in this report are deliberately misleading in order to provoke thought". I like that sort of angle, very close to the near future laboratory spin; not so much of the "Misleading" thing but rather about the oblique strategy it leads to. It's maybe more "niche" or "provocative" in our case.
