If everyone is mad, then is it really madness or just the way things are? If, say, everyone in Minnesota heard voices – and were basically schizophrenic…are they really mad? And would a state of schizophrenic people find ways to manage their idiosyncrasies? If you were schizophrenic it might be really comforting to go to a place where everyone shared your illness. Perhaps we might no longer even consider it an illness but just the Minnesotan way of doing things.
