People like Tipler are unfathomable morons.

I wish I could get inside the head of someone who writes stuff like that and means it. It’s a complete mystery to me. Don’t they have a couple of reliable friends who laugh to their faces when they write stuff like “I’m an enemy of the state. It’s an honor.”? When they start a sentence with “But nowhere in Mein Kampf…”, don’t they feel just a little uneasy? No voice in their heads saying “Tipler, this might be a bit too much. Don’t be a schmuck.”?

I fear that one day neuroscientists are going to discover that people like Tipler have defective brains since birth; that they like a center of self-censorship or whatever, and the rest of us are going to feel really bad for having mocked people who suffered from a mental disability all our lives.

I think it is an ego trip for them. “Only they can stem the tide. Only they can defend the truth. The rest of us are just sheeple, but they will defend liberty by god, for the good of us all.” etc, etc.
