Kevin Baker of The Smallest Minority has this to say in regards to the possibility of another American Civil War, bolding mine:
Of course, the Anarchists see both sides as delusional and dangerous. They believe that the Free Market is the answer to it all, and that we need to give up this nationalistic fantasy crap and start dealing with objective reality.
As if objective reality would appeal to people who voluntarily share common delusions.
He’s exactly right. The overwhelming majority of the populace simply refuses to deal with the facts – objective reality has no appeal to them. That’s another reason why Rational Evangelism Won’t Work.
Ironically enough, of course, objective reality doesn’t appeal to Baker either.
