Are lunatics and maniacs necessary for our well being?

Do they give us all someone to focus our hatred towards, thus relieving the need to be hateful to our loved ones?
Without lunatics (and maniacs) we would we all be being vile to each other as we would have no other target for our hostility?

Why would you hate on someone who can't help themselves? :| Unless you're using a new, more PC definition of lunatic.

What's the new PC definition? Every self-diagnosed person on the internet? :paranoid:

Probably something like criminal sociopaths only. I don't even know, the OP has confused me.

I don't hate anyone, but seeing how people project their negative inner feelings to their loved ones certainly presents an example of what not to be.

Most people don't seem to go around brimming full of hatred towards lunatics, unless you define 'lunatic' as 'a person who is a member of a rival group or faction'.
I mean, what makes you more angry? Someone who does terrible things because their brain is broken, or a purportedly totally normal person who chooses to believe or do things you don't agree with?

I know of several people who go around brimming full of hatred toward lunatics. They don't all necessarily have broken brain - they just make lifestyle CHOICES that a non lunatic would find abhorrent.

I think we're working with different definitions of the word 'lunatic'.
