A reality perspective.
Given the premise of social madness, then society's lesser internal elements, operating in daily conformity of course would appear rationally consistent, while remaining certifiably insane.
If we are not to accept this negative view and society is not mad, then does it mean that its lesser internal elements, operating in daily conformity are certifiably rational?
What does it matter, if society is mad or not mad? Does the conclusion or the question of madness, merely proclaimed merit consideration? Perhaps some thought? Then what? Perhaps more thought. Perhaps more questions?
But the question remains, what if society were mad? Then where do the rest of us stand?
