On Kiruv Rechokim & Kerovim (corrected)

The basic premise behind most of Kiruv which underlies the Chareidi worldview is that everyone who is not an Orthodox Jew is not an Orthodox Jew for one of two reason:
1) They don't know better.
2) They know better, but are lying to themselves so that they can live their non-halakhic lifestyle.

This view permeates the entire yeshivish world and their worldview. I hope to flesh out the implications of this position in the future.
