14. Read Conservatives Without Conscience

By John Dean (yes, the Nixon John Dean). He left the Republican Party years ago and wrote this book to explain their current thinking. It is an analysis of psychological and medical studies that show that about 25% of people have brain structures that predispose them to authoritarianism. The particular authoritarian system doesn't matter; the black-and-white structure does. They cannot accept contradictory facts because it endangers their entire belief system. This is why it is useless to argue with RWNJs- they are just not capable of reasoning.
