There is a massive disconnect here. I’m not a right winger or Ayn Rand Fan and hate the demagoguery of Trump. If you had read some of my many other articles you wouldn’t have jump to such conclusions. In fact I’m in perfect alignment with much of what you say.

There is, however, a fanatical mindset within the broader picture of such low self-esteem folks who become suicidal mass killers. Apparently you have become so blinded by social injustice that it is beyond your capability to perceive it. Try reading the True Believer by Eric Hoffer or my book A Quick Look at the Essence of Man and His Universe.
