If a person goes on a rampage killing many people
without so much as a cause, and believes that he is
being rational, how can you possibly change that
impression? (1)

What determines the degree of rationality?  What makes
a person more rational than others?  I can't help but
think that rationality has everything to do with the
belief system each person holds. If you don't want to
understand their beliefs, how can you possibly
understand their rationality?

Questions on my mind.
Just curious

1. I was refering to the 21 year old that walked into
a cegep in Montreal and starting shooting for no
apparent cause or reason.
