A very hard to answer question, ive wondered about it for quite some time.
I think you'll have a hard time defining insanity, people generally have different views on what it is to be insane.
First off i believe murder is a moral issue not a mental one.
For so long society has frowned apon murder because it is generally accepted as 'evil'.
I personally think someone is insane when they lose grip on reality and can no longer function properly in society, like thinking people are feeding
off your thoughts or the homeless guy shouting at shadows.
Jeffrey dahmer was insane IMO. From what ive read he killed people because he was lonely, then would talk to his victims corpse' for days.. That to
me seems a little too disconnected with reality to be sane.
But saying that, i think he had a job and could function in society, so..
Maybe there is no such thing as insanity, since what a mad man thinks is real, is
real, at least to him. Just because the majority of people
disagree and think a certain way doesnt make them sane.. Maybe they're insane, and the madman is the only person who is sane..
Hmm.. i think ill just stop now..
Damn you im gona be thinkin about this for ages now. lol.
