To defeat the left we must first understand the left. Its not a topic for polite conversation, but everybody knows many democrats are insane: just ask some of them about Trump's accomplishments in office and you'll get a full frontal demonstration. But how can this be? Talk to them about any other subject and they're obviously fine people, just like Hitler's German's, Stalin's Russians, or Mao's Han Chinese: they're genuinely decent people in every context but politics. Challenge those beliefs, however, and the response is so over the top, and so unreasoning, that it makes you question everything you know about them, about yourself,
and about reality.
The behavior is frightening, beyond ridicule and exaggeration; but a lot of these people are our friends, neighbors, spouses - so how do we save them? With the compassion that comes from understanding what's happened to them - and understanding the delusion, that's what this book is about - and understanding the book is what this chapter is about.
