Then again, millions of people live outside the proscribed dictates of society without being referred to as insane, so just maybe your point is self-evidently untrue.

Let's see, there's single mothers, struggling poets, conservatives on philosophical web sites, singers of intelligent rap songs, numerous horrible stage actors and actresses, mindless political sophisticates like Barbra Streisand, snipers, kidnappers, rapists and wife-beaters, all of whom are considered very, very sane, for all of their obviously unappreciated behavior.

Nice dead wrong thesis, though. Don't hesitate to try another one. Perhaps something obtuse like "Isn't creativity crushed by corporate capitalist pigs, unlike those vibrant, dynamic socialist countries?"
