Abnormally normal people

“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal […] they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.”

– Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited
