It is an awful lot harder, Tony told me, to convince people you’re sane than it is to convince them you’re crazy.
Back to the classic debate between what is considered sane and what is insane.
The main question is not about stigmatization or social conformity, it’s really about how many people can still choose between good and evil, then still have the capability to do what is right? Again, not ‘good things’ according to law, religions, culture, or some state of the art psychology theory. But according to the thing that separates us from the animal world. That thing we call humanity.
Humanity can’t be fabricated. We can’t fake good people. They just are. Tests aren’t needed.
Maybe it really is easier to find mad people these days. Jon Ronson should write a book about finding a perfect human being. That would be more challenging.
