I'm not a psychologist but recently have been watching interviews of alien abductees. Some of these people are extremely intelligent and they really
suck you in. If it was a mental disorder causing their firm beliefs it would damn near impossible for most to not believe them. Similar to a good
trial lawyer convincing a jury. If they sell the sizzle most will buy it. One psychologist I watched stated many of her patients don't even consider
they have a mental disorder even if it was proven to them clinically they did with confirmed evidence showing them things they said are not true.
With so many mental disorders, dozens of them then, an assumption could be made that there are 10's of thousands of these people that firmly believe
their delusions and are, not intentionally, misleading and even convincing even more people of their mental dillusions.
This had me think about politics. Everyone knows politicians do in fact lie. It's par for the course but it also made me think some of these
politicians likely suffer from severe mental disorders where they truly believe something and convince others either intentionally or not. Pelosi for
example is a professional gas lighter. Constantly making outrageous claims and reinforcing it with statements like the one this week where she said
the GOP murdered George Floyd or something to that effect. Once she said Trump would never be President and you could take it to the bank.
I'm using her as an example but Trump, Biden, many of them make statement they truly believe or want people to believe. They may even believe the
statements themselves that can be proven as absolutely false. Even when shown they facts they sometimes still deny the truth.
I guess my point is there is a good chance we are electing highly intelligent people with severe mental disorders and most of us don't even know it.
They are so believable like some of these alien abductees they suck us in. We want to believe them and often do because by and large the spectrum of
mental health is made up of people without mental disorders and who are not capable of misleading people on that level.
