If a man is mentally unsound, but he never seeks out an official diagnosis, is he still mentally unsound?



Believers in objective reality answer "Of course."


I actually agree with you. I think that Trump probably is mentally unsound on some level.

But this has nothing to do with whether or not it’s appropriate for professionals to definitively claim whether or not this particular tree fell in the woods and to have actually measured its sound. They’ve never been to that particular spot in the woods.
