Pockets of InsanityPosted: July 31, 2011
Do you really think these people are sane?
What is sanity? How do we judge what is sane and what is not sane? Is the notion of sanity something to be determined by majority vote? What if you’ve decided, whatever your reasons, that the majority of people on this planet are batshit crazy insane? Just because you’re outnumbered doesn’t mean you’re wrong.
I think all humans have pockets of insanity, call them “blind spots”, among their mostly sane thinking. Allow me to define insanity: The inability to think clearly, i.e., being unable to choose the better from the worse. Voting on which master holds the whip is textbook insanity. Why does anyone think they need a whip-holder to boss them around?
