They must live as if things and processes are real or else they would quickly get into trouble.

I recently asked a Trump supporter a question. I said, “When you step into an airplane, you assume that those who fly the plane and built it studied aerodynamics, the science of flight, right?” He would not answer me. He just kept repeating “the wall. Give me the wall.”
