What is insanity?
Obviously we have clinically insane, but I don't think this is what you mean.
I think when someone sees the good as bad or the bad as good those who live justly often times call them insane.
But I don't think it's insanity, I think it's entitlement and justification. If you can put yourself in each persons shoes. Start as a child and
imagine the most just childhood with just parents teaching something that sounds just but may in fact be unjust.
What I mean is this. For now eliminate the extreme positions and follow along. If you grew up in a home with money, good education and good jobs, you
could have a very just upbringing, Correct?
Suppose your parents don't understand Private Central Banking, Wall Street, Controlled Media, and maybe they have no idea what it's like to be poor.
If those parents taught their children that America was great and anyone who worked hard could get ahead, their children would believe them, wouldn't
you agree? Their parents might even be ignorant enough to blame the poor for poverty.
So these just, hard working citizens, now feel entitled to income disparity. They don't even realize that the system is broken and the situation at
the bottom is getting worse in most developed nations, with slight improvement and stagnation everywhere else.
Now if someone doesn't know all this are they insane or ignorant? And is the ignorance willing or by design?
If someone doesn't know the difference between a pineapple and a remote control, how will they know the difference of more important things?
Reason is not a common trait. We are very herd like to both are strength and weaknesses.
Try to better explain the difference between the remote and the pineapple. It is the responsibility of the wise to assist the unwise. If the only way
is persuasion then work on your oratory skills and study Sophistry.
Who is the teacher? The one with Knowledge or the one without? Whose responsibility is it for the student to learn? This is one of the ways that
teachers are judged harder than the students.
Some people have knowledge of both the good and the bad but continue to live in willful ignorance. To those few I will give the label insane.
