Is it changing? or is it correcting?
Is it about trying to open their eyes? or merely about getting to them to look at the other side of the same coin..? cause all too often people act like it's just one opinion over another and while that is sometime the case it certainly isn't the case all of the time.
When people have made up minds and you show them something that blatantly proves what they think is true as wrong... there is a serious problem. It's not a matter of just trying to convince someone to believe something else but it's about them blocking out what should be common sense observational skills.
Would you not want to try and help free someone trapped in the matrix? ...I suppose many who do not ...can not see do so because they truly want to remain deluded as it either makes them more comfortable or they feel like they discovered something which makes them special and more "awake" then others... part of a group mentality that I have been seeing plaguing the forums as of late.
