There is at times some practical use to looking at American society these days through the lens of “reality based community v. fantasy based community.”
Yet, is there anyone on earth above the age of 16 who is so silly they do not know that even the most realistic of us humans has a few fantasies he or she swears are true?
The distinction between “reality based community” and “fantasy based community” cannot be based on whether someone fantasizes or not. Instead, it should be based on whether or not their fantasies are harmful to themselves or others.
That, at least, is how I see it.
