College Students: If You Say You're a 6 Foot Five, Seven Year Old Chinese Girl, Then I Guess I Believe That's What You Are, If That's What's In Your Heart

AllahPundit does his best to make sense of the senseless, but it's a steep climb.

He quotes Rod Dreher: "These people are ripe for dictatorship."

Indeed. Any untrue thing can be proven so long as you concede one other untrue thing. If you concede that 1 + 1 = 1, then you can prove that you're the Queen of England. (Simple, really: you're one and she's one; together you add to one; that means you're a unity together; ergo, you're the queen of England.)

All it took to finally see the beautiful inevitablity of Big Brother was to concede that 2 + 2 = 5.

People conditioned to accept outrageous falsehoods from people claiming to have a special right to their own reality are an existential threat to the republic. If a 5'10" white man can tell you he's a 6'5" Chinese girl, and you are required to believe him because each person constructs his own quantum reality moment by moment, it's no difficult thing to also accept that killing the kulaks and putting the farms under inefficient state rule will result in a greater grain harvest.

If you can accept even basic, in-your-face tangible falsehoods as truth, you'll have no trouble at all with abstract lies outside of your limited experience you'd have to look through books (yuck!) to check on.
