You know what crazy is? Crazy is majority rules. Take germs, for example. Eighteenth century: no such thing. No one ever imagined such a thing. No sane person. Along comes this doctor, Semmelweis. He's trying to convince people that's there's these teeny tiny invisible bad things called germs that get into your body and make you sick. He's trying to get doctors to wash their hands. What is this guy? Crazy? Teeny? Tiny? Invisible?
Now, up to the 20th century, last week I go in to order a burger at this fast-food joint, and the guy drops it on the floor. James, he picks it up, he wipes it off, he hands it to me like it's all OK. "What about the germs?" I say. He says "I don't believe in germs. Germs is a plot made up so they could sell disinfectants and soaps." Now he's crazy, right? See? There's no right, there's no wrong, there's only popular opinion.
Jeffrey Goines (sans rambling and Buffy Speak), Twelve Monkeys

Day after day
Alone on a hill
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him
They can see that he's just a fool
And he never gives an answer

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning 'round...

And he never listens to them
He knows that they're the fools
They don't like him
The Beatles, "The Fool on the Hill"

Clowns to the left of me,
Jokers to the right, here I am,
