Captain Jack Sparrow on Crazy

In one of the most iconic scenes of the infamous character played by Johnny Depp, Captain Jack Sparrow spills out his perplexing realization about insanity, and more specifically, insanity within people and their behavior.  His analogy is hinting at human perception and that a certain type of behavior is judged only because of natural instincts and that we may be missing out on potential brilliance

The form of this argument goes:

All X are Y

Some X are only Y to Z

/All X are Z

 

Crazy people are crazy

Some crazy people are crazy only to normal people

/Crazy people are normal
