    The way I deal with these people is to recognize I am dealing with a cult. The leaders are psychopaths who know the truth but have ulterior motives. The followers who I call the bubble people actually believe the nonsense and have been thoroughly trained to hold contradictory thoughts in their heads at the same time ala 1984.

    What I had to get over was this insane belief that all people believe that character and all that implies matters to these people. It does not. They are what they are and we have to defeat them politically for they really do not live in the real universe. They are disconnected from reality.
