Convincing someone who's crazy that they're crazy can be very challenging. First of all, if crazy people recognized how crazy they were, they'd be in therapy or they'd be taking powerful drugs. Also, most crazy people don't believe in therapy or drugs. That's part of what makes them so crazy.
On top of that, crazy people are often quite sure that they're right about everything. This makes it very inconvenient for the sane people -- who also think that they're right about everything -- to convince the crazy people that they're wrong, and furthermore, that they're crazy.
Not only that, but crazy people think that sane people only think that they're crazy because the sane people are the crazy ones. Of course, the sane people think that the crazy people's accusations of craziness are just more proof that the crazy people are crazy.
