N2 - In this paper we prove several inequalities by means of diagrammatic expansions, a technique already used in [1]. This time we show that iterations of the folding of a probability leads to the proof of some inequalities by means of a generalized and approximate random cluster representation of the iterated foldings. One of the inequalities is the well known FKG inequality, which ends up being proven, quite unexpectedly, by means of the (generalized) FK representation. Although most of the results are not new, we hope that the techniques will find applications in other contexts.
