  •  It is not dysfunction (0+ / 0-)

    Show me the dysfunction, and you had best not say that their propositions are false.  

    When people worked with the demonological theory of disease, they worked with false propositions about the causes of disease, but they were not delusional.  ditto the Greeks with their belief that ancient skeletons of mastadons were the bones of their deceased, cyclopic giant ancestors.  Is that delusional and dysfunctional as well?  

    These people are misinformed and seriously so.  That is all.

    •  So you're saying they're perfectly functional? (1+ / 0-)

      The meaning of "dysfunction" is "not functional." They are not functioning, in an overall sense, in the real world -- they're wrapping their homes in duct tape and aluminum foil, they're spending huge amounts of their limited incomes on stockpiles of guns and survivalist methods, they spend all of their free time exchanging conspiracy theories and repeating wild accusations about Obama and the Evil Liberals, etc.

      They live IN a world of delusion. Ergo, they are functionally delusional. I was specific in saying that the problem is not organic, i.e. not mental illness.

      Got that, or do you want to spit and spew some more?

        Why on earth are you saying that?  Are you small minded and attack people who see things differently than you do?  

        Take your ignorance of what we are talking about and combine it with your foolish thinking, and fuck your tiny self with it.
