Didn't know where to put this. So feel free to move it.
Anyway my parents and family just seem to not care about the things that go on in this country and a far. It appears that the infowar neeeeeds to be fought harder, because if we " informed" are the only ones who know then it seems the circle will just keep rotating. And things won't change...... Just my thoughts anyway......

It all takes time.
The first time you learn about all of this you will have a mental breakdown.
Everything I thought i knew was blown away when i first started researching all of this.
Took me about a year to not be angry at this situation and instead making the best of it.

So is someone labeling you crazy? Or are you afraid they will ? Can you adress your topic header a little more.

On a side note , i simply dont care what people think, if you show enough compassion for the subject ,people will start catch on .

What makes you think you are one of the "informed"? And what do you believe you are "informed" about? Chemtrails? Reptilians? The evil Illuminati Masonic New World Order? The Hollow Earth? Quadratic equations? Reincarnation? Your post has zero specifics about what you are talking about, and hopefully you have not visited the ATS Buffet, picked a subject and read a few threads, and consider yourself now "informed."

Press this as a generational issue of importance. A lot of our parents are stuck in the woes of tradition and ignorance. Many of them want it that way. I press certain issues and they respond "I could care less"...and they really don't. That bothers me but they sleep well and embrace their ignorance.

Certainly not my cup of tea but I sometimes I imagine it must feel freeing to not give one single f#.

Sometimes I wish I could.

We'll skeptical people always label you the black sheep. And I am informed of the research I and others of this site(and beyond) by the facts presented for said ideals. 9/11 for one is reduced to nothing more than a shadow of a conspiracy at best. I'm not saying I'm losing hope, I'm simply stating we need a new approach.....people need to be educated, as soon as possible.

I made a conscious decision to inform people through Facebook..wether they wanted to hear it or not.. and so far I have had moderate success. I have also had people try to make a mockery of it..cause they just can't hack it.

If each person just wakes 1 more person then that is all it takes to affect a change.

Let go of the fear. Congratulations on waking people up! And remember..you don't feed a baby steak.. it takes alot of spoonfeeding first.

"Crazy" is a liberating title.No one KNOWS what we will do because we are crazy.Labels like that are for those who can't grasp a greater reality than their own little world,perhaps it's intellectual jealousy.It makes no difference If THEY won't listen,you can't make them,all you CAN do is be honest and stick up for what is right.

When you literally wake someone up who is fast asleep they can be 1) Very confused, 2) Very angry. It takes time for them to come around properly and you may be shouted at to begin with.

Remember - 'It is hard to accept the Truth when the lies are exactly what you wanted to hear.'

After reading your post I'm still unclear as to what exactly your "message" is.

If you could enlighten us, you may get some useful replies.

But generally speaking, it comes down to three things: the message, the medium, and the intended audience.

This is a cautionary note to anyone that has been getting most of their information from alternate sources and not the MSM.

A person that gets most information from the MSM will usually have an emotional reaction to ideas that challenge their comfortable world view. It has little to do with the validity of this or that conspiracy theory. The inability to think critically is symptomatic of the stupor that TV news, pop culture and advertising puts you in. Get used to it.

Good luck. The people who aren't, by and large, don't want to be.

A new approach would be to become financially successful first......and then try get across whatever message you're trying to get across. Money persuades people, not ideas. Remember, the unenlightened are easily persuaded by money.

Thank you all for your input, I was merely starting a thread with an open end so that this outcome would happen. But I guess "it's better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it" as the saying goes!

Fact:

Most people don't give a flying fiddler's fart about what goes on in the world until it directly impacts their own lives.




... Accepting that fact and letting it go, is the first step towards sanity.

Of course they wont listen because youre young and what do you know about living? (according to them) You know nothing and are talking stupid. (according to them) Ok?

See? You cant change the world so its not that you shouldn't try, but you have to 1st change yourself...and then try to change the world one person at a time. If you succeed in enlightening even a couple of people....youre doing great.

Just know when you cant change someone youre talking to and move on with something like "How about that Superbowl? Or that sunset tonight?"

Some will be interested in these things, others wont believe it, some wont care...and to others it just wont matter. Start with yourself.
Youre already on the right track!

Crazy is good.

The ones that think they are normal are the scary ones. They believe all the official stories, they believe that the governments are there to help them, they believe everything the Main Stream Medias tell them, the pharmaceutical industries exist only to help people, thank God, there are no cover ups anywhere, no conspiracies anywhere either, Kennedy was shot by Crazy Oswald and our health and education systems are quite good, bankers offing themselves is coincidence, MH370 say what???. I kid you not, I know people exactly like that and they claim they are normal. I tell you, ignorance is bliss.

So yes, crazy is good.
