I suppose you could say his farming obsession was driving him.

Also, would a normal person make long orations about the American farmer? When he was doing that, Drucker (one who's fairly normal), Ziffel, Kiley, Lisa, etc. thought HE was nuts.

There's no doubt he was in a surreal world, but to me, he was part of it too, in his own way.
I agree with this assessment.
