I don't know if that reminds you of anything, but it reminds me of religion. I was thinking about that earlier... what if religious people are simply schizophrenics that society is just fucking with?
Some guy starts hearing voices and tells someone. Someone else puts on some robes, a pointy hat and goes "That's the voice of GOD! He created EVERYTHING! It's all in this book! He's talking to you! Vote this way, hate these people and uh... he told me he wants you to give me some money."
