Extreme Wealth is a cause of insanity?

Extremes of behavior are not very sane, they are outliers of human drives run amuck. Extremes of sexuality are abhorred in most cultures and societies. Rightly so because they cross boundaries that society needs in order to allow most people to take comfort in a shared environment. Extremes of fame, fortune and ignorance are equally questionable as being emblematic of the problem with any human need or desire when it is pushed beyond what a social system can support. Of these all ignorance is the least forgivable in a democratic society and the least punished of all extremes. It is about to be punished with the greatest loss of all.

In Search of Sanity

Sanity is a great, if illusory,  goal for most humans. I’ll use of all of the sane things about our society leaves us in a sorry state. Sanity is in the search for peace. The ability to recognize when we are becoming too powerful for our own good. The knowledge that life is too short to spend it all trying to rise higher in some hierarchy is a tiny part of sanity, but an important one.
