"Batshit crazy" is evenly distributed in all directions in political space.  This means that all that batshit crazy SHOULD, assuming we don't give any one faction too much power, cancel out.

In the resulting vacuum, even a small but sane minority may prevail.

At least, that's the theory behind democracy.  Its fundamental theorem, perhaps.

You have any issue with that? (Full disclosure: Caplan does.)
