James Hodgkinson was not crazy and I submit that (in most cases) we need to stop using that word to describe people involved in politically motivated acts of violence.
One can examine his history and the known facts of this case and certainly conclude that Mr Hodgkinson was at times an irrational man. We all have moments of irrational behavior and thought. It is part of the human condition. I’m personally guilty of calling every ex-girlfriend and ex-wife “crazy” for their behavior during the relationship and post-breakup, but I openly admit that’s disingenuous. It’s wrong to call our sisters, mothers, aunts, and female cousins “crazy” simply for being women.
