A crazy system is one that defeats the purpose it was set up to achieve.
- When a system of income security discourages the poor from earning or saving money - this is craziness
- When families can only get support when they have broken down - this is craziness
- When children leave school feeling worthless - this is craziness
- When people end up in hospital for lack of some modest support in the community - this is craziness
Perhaps craziness slips in when the appearance of achieving the goal becomes more important than actually achieving the goal - unfortunately this is the norm for party politics.
