Trust me, the whole world is crazy and we should all be MAD…
I once met a lady who ate pepper soup with raw eggs. Yuck right? but that’s her thing. What about the popular news of a guy who married a 21 feet long cobra with the claim that the viper is a reincarnation of his dead fiancé! Bizarre!!!
Sometimes we stare at our TVs, smartphones and even PCs constantly wondering how weird and crazy people can be but you know what? WE fail to realise this world is based mostly on individual perspectives. It depends on the angle at which we see things, perceive things, got educated about things and also socialised with things.
“One man’s meat is another man’s poison”, says the Christian bible so tell me who is normal? I personally feel the creator, God, Allah, The Supreme being or whatever higher power the world believes in never created a normal human and here’s why: NORMAL IS BORING and Crazy People would always be MAD. Note, when you are MAD in this context, you “MAKE A DIFFERENCE”.
It is an inner hunger for any human to crave this MADness and fault the norm. The freedom of choice is the death of normalisation , I do not stand corrected. Now don’t get it twisted, there are various kinds of crazies and I am not referring to the mental state of a man, I am talking about the crazy that changes the world, the crazy that always ends up sparking a revolution, a motion , spinning the wheels of history and devilling the laws of the old crazies .
People fear what they do not understand and write it off immediately they don’t as crazy, weird, absurd or impossible. We have seen cases like Bill gates, Albert Einstein, George Lucas, Walt Disney, Charles Darwin, Graham Bell etcetera. Basically we live in a world enjoying the fruits of a once termed crazy tree!
As Thomas Sankara said in speech in 1985, I quote as spoken
“You cannot carry out fundamental change without a certain amount of madness. In this case, it comes from non-conformity, the courage to turn your back on the old formulas, the courage to invent the future. It took the MAD men of yesterday for us to be able to act with extreme clarity today. I want to be one of those mad men. We must dare to invent the future.” – Thomas Sankara 1985 (RIP)
It’s ironic how the billions of humans that walk upon the earth have refused to be this crazy enough to think differently, to reinvent the world. We all have a purpose thus our perspective towards life varies. You are the only one that can do what you do the way you do it so why conform? We all need to realise that the MAD approach to our individuality would bring about an evolution of our present to create an unimaginable future.
Have you ever wondered how people lived in the past without the technology and some sets of ideologies we have now? Have you ever looked at some ancient items and technology and wonder, “What the hell!” Well the so called crazies made us more comfortable today and believe me in a few generations our world as we know it would be seen as totally archaic, uncomfortable and unbearable to live in. So why not unleash your crazy, summon your MADness and reinvent the future so your name shall be left boldly printed in the sands of time as one who made the world worth living?
In a nutshell, Thomas Sankara made one thing clear to us, “Men that are MAD rule the world”. Now what if we all decide to be MAD then the world would be a crazy place don’t you think?
