from Erich Fromm‘s the sane society:

2 – can a society be sick – the pathology of normalcy

14

what is so deceptive about the sate of mind of the members of a society is the ‘consensual validation’ of their concepts. it is naively assumed that the fact that the majority of people share certain ideas or feelings proves the validity of these ideas and feelings.. nothing is further from the truth.. the fact that millions of people share the same forms of mental pathology does not make these people sane

public consensus always oppresses someone(s).. and validation ness.. is 1\ inhumane and very likely 2\ impossible
