    Quite right, Don. They pretend to be rational, and consider themselves such, but in ways closely akin to schizophrenia — which is entirely what McGilchrist focuses on. So we get elaborate constructions from them which are largely divorced from the evidences of reality. Whatever evidence is brought before them which contradicts their delusions, they rationalize away, spinning their web of madness to encompass ever more. Also, as we’ve recently seen here, they love to troll, and they admire others who model trolling, such as Trump’s recent echoing of the Nazi theme that those who oppose his desire to be the great leader are “vermin,” with all that implies.
