The strongest purveyors of all anti-liberty thought are emotion based (usually hate and fear). They'll dress it up with reasoning *after* they make up their mind via whatever emotion compels them to act, but ultimately they base their entire anti-human, anti-liberty world view on emotions. You cannot reason with them, and attempting to do so simply draws you into their bizzare world of ever flowing and changing whims, emotions and tirades. In fact, when you try to use calm facts, reason and logic with them, and break down their rationals in short order (not hard to do, since they were invented after their position was arrived at), your logic and reason become to them an "oppressor's tool" and merely confirms their feelings that we're unrelenting soulless monsters.
Some of these types can be given a "conversion" through a traumatic emotional experience (being mugged, almost murdered, raped), but then they simply switch hats and are emotion driven illogical people who just happen to spout our point of view. Hardly worthy as allies, however, at least in that case they're not out actively working against us.
The problem is that the bulk of people are more emotionally driven than they are logical and reasonable. We can thank the modern progressive education system for that, and it's media lackeys. This is the situation they want, action-reaction by impulse instead of calm reasoning. It serves the purposes of mindless collectivism well.
End of the day I honestly have no idea how to stop it, other than not wasting energy on the fully emotion based people, and focusing on those who are instead just intellectually lazy and who accept whatever sounds good just to get by. They, at least, may have reason and logic.
