...I'm curious - why did you choose Milosovich and the Davidians as your examples of irrationality? Why not Clinton and the Pope? ...it may seem like nitpicking, but I get uneasy when I see bland acceptance of deliberately constructed views of reasoned action. Within their respective systems, neither Milisevich (does anybody on here know the correct spelling??) of Koresh was particularly irrational - certainly no more so than most of us.
