Favoring the insane

Anthony McCarthy makes a lot of sense:

The choice is between many people having a decent life and a small number of the criminally insane stealing and hoarding most of it. Our political, legal and cultural orthodoxy favors the insane, we have to change that.

The point of calling the people who accumulate wealth beyond reason and go on constructing McMansions "insane" is to belittle the value system in which that behavior makes sense, I think. And that's a worthy thing, although I'd love a stronger - in the sense of more effective social-pressure-wise - word than "insane".
