well considering this man represents the world as seen through altered eyes and mental states I understand some of his dillusional bearing.

My interest is often in the responses made to the affront of the man... these are truly telling in the vision of some aspects of developing society. Yes DM has issues but in his expression of trouble states he brings out even more troubling responses that highlight parts of our society that are equally repulsive.
