I don't think that Frank's problem is thinking. I think its more along the line of HOW he thinks that's the problem.
He's still at that point where it's all black and white, and he believes that seeing shades of grey make one week, a tool of the establishment.
Have you ever noticed the following; if you ask him a serious question that doesn't fit his rather polarized thoughts he just can't answer it. Either that or he spouts some ultra, uber radical talking point. I think he believes what he is saying but hasn't taken the time to figure out why.
This makes rational discussion almost impossible for him. You and I have figured out WHY we think the way we do, and can easily use our vocabulary to help another understand what and why we feel the way we do. He hasn't.
