Do not feel too harshly towards those that need the comfort of their denial bubbles.

We see it here in DU as a reflection of our society. People form denial bubbles because they cant (or choose not to) deal with certain challenges to their realities. I think we all live in bubbles with different boundaries. Some challenge the bubble boundaries (usually not conservatives) while others, not only dont challenge their boundaries but lash out at anyone that might dare to suggest they make the challenge.

Seems that some of us, when faced with a horrific reality, seek to rationalize or minimize the horror. To think that an organization was capable of plotting and carrying out the assassination of a popular president can be overwhelming. And to add to that, the idea that part of our government could have been involved can be way too much reality for some.

To some it seems to be more comfortable to rationalize that a lone nitwit could defeat the security surrounding the president. And since he was conveniently silenced, the case is closed and should never, ever be discussed again.

IMHO humans conspire at all levels.
