This world seems to be getting worse. It's faster, more aggressive, over populated, under nourished, under resourced and now we're even bombing the moon!
"When will it end?" I hear you cry.
2012 according to some sources... don't ask, it's the Mayans or something...
Do we need to harken back to olden times to find more peaceful (repressive - sorry, had to cough) ways of conducting ourselves? Maybe we should look into our history and revel in the mists of romance when there were no wars, no exploitation of innocents; when all were employed and fed and we just burned our resources because they grew on trees (poetic license applied).
Maybe we should look to the future and dream of the days when our politicians and commercial leaders start telling us the truth and feeding back into society some of our hard earned money. We should look forward to times when we finally get a grip and stop decriminalising criminals; stop having so damned many babies; stop bombing each other and raping our planet of every known resource just so we can continue to inflict as much hatred. stress and aggression on each other as possible, like what the way we do and all that...
Or, maybe we should stop and think. Somebody once said to me that there is a fine line between genius and insanity, well let's look at the evidence of genius in our world...
Hmmmm, think I'll try insanity for a while.
you didn't, I was opening a bag of nuts!
Humans will ruin it , we do things like that well.
Hey good post by the way
Actually, although you appear to be getting a pretty hard time here after your post, I reckon you make some very valid points, (especially in the latter half of your post), and perhaps your original post wasn't read through or considered thoroughly by those that posted sarcastic comments against it.
A quality hub might well be the answer!
I tried insanity for awhile...myself...it made me crazy!
Genius only appears to be insanity to those who laugh at genius
I'm so glad that you don't know what you're talking about... For a minute I thought I understood what you were talking about!
@ Madame X "Genius only appears to be insanity to those who laugh at genius"
Yep.. And people with a lesser ability always take the soft option
I keep looking for the upside to it. Fruitless pursuit thus far.
Being sane is so over rated I like insane thank you and why not make it a hub? that would be the smarter route to go
I have my moments when my chaotic mind becomes disillusioned
Crazdwriter is right-sanity is way over rated-besides that who is to be the judge of saying who is or is not sane? Trying to classify anyone at any particular moment could be viewed as insanity all by itself..
When were the days when "politicians and commercial leaders" told us the truth? I'm old, and I don't remember that.
Well my goodness in this world you would have to be crazy to be sane! Thank you,I'll stick with insanity.
It's a crazy world in the land of the insane. Or do double clichés cancel each other out? Meaning it's a sane world in the land of the crazy?
Existence is Absurd, so I shove absurdity down existence's throat.
Sane actually means healthy in latin languages. In which case, no, I'm not insane. Maybe it's a fad to say you're insane.
My best friends are all insane, and we have a great time. I don't want to change anything. I must be insane!
I'm boringly sane, and it "ain't" a lot of fun (and no matter how much the world seems to be driving me crazy, I just can't seem to get there - where the flying elephants are pink and there's no such thing a "bad hair day").
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results. hmmm...

If you heard a voice speaking to you telling you to do something. Is it God or Insanity?How does God speak to you? What's the difference between a highly respected religious person saying God spoke to him or a man saying he hears voices and being locked away in a insanity ward?

I find it hard to believe that even people who voted for Donald Trump aren't starting to realize that there is something seriously wrong with him. He is either insane or such a narcissist that he's incapable of rational thought.Let's not even talk about his policies. Let's just discuss his...

UK woman jailed for over 30 years for killing her two teenage daughters. Considered by the court not to be mentally ill. Is that even possible? Can somebody kill another without being ill in the mind in some way?

If you are insane do you know it? Can it still be used for an excuse in crime?

In the midst of the 9/11 media coverage, this opinion piece by Kathleen Parker really stood out for me. Insanity. Partisanship as extreme sport.What do you think? Has our entire nation gone mad?I've excerpted. Here's also the link.http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/opi … 455.columnKathleen...
