To be honest I think we (who live western kind of life ) are already crazy.
Alienation (isolation) in ALL segments of society  is so "big and wide" that it is actually scary. Don't get me start to explain what I mean, I wouldn't know where to start...really the topic is so huge...

I've been trying to explain it for several years.  As my Russian boss said "Now I have lived in two socialist countries".

you are the media you consume.
