If it's right or wrong is simply a single question - if you were asleep would you want people to try and wake you up? The answer is yes. So how can you look at others and not do so? I can't.
If you are having a hard time waking people up, then perhaps it has something to do with your approach.
If you expect someone to change their mind in the middle of a debate, your expectations are too high. And if you are expecting the person to believe everything you do, then you are still sleeping.
And overall, even if you were right the entire strategy is just keeping the status quo.

as was mentioned before we cant do this on our own. we need to wake the sheeple up, the problem is how. i dont think leaving them to their own devices is helpful they are too distracted with the rat race to care about the subtle mysteries of life. having said that i am also sick of trying to wake people up.
BUT at the end of the day we all have a part to play an i truly believe mine is that of the teacher. i will try to wake as many people as i can. and i have at least reached a few and made them think. if i can influence someones life in a positive manner then my existence on this planet has not been for naught.
whats the point of flying if you have no where to go and no one to fly with.
feel sympathy for the blind heard, for all you know the person you save might be your savior one day.
i have been given a choice and i choose to stay and help.
running away is the cowards choice

The "New World Order" ain't new, chief. The same families and bloodlines, the same natural aristocracy (some "college mind slaves" or whatever, others, like Bill Gates, brilliant dropouts but never burnouts) has propped up and animated the world from time immemorial. The only impending difference is that the props will finally be taken away and everything will be seen for what it is.
Those of us who are Awake owe nothing to those who have been unable to wake up before now and should certainly feel no guilt at finally being able to accept the rewards at long last that we have always deserved for our sacrifices. We have been paying for the sleeping world forever, it's time we finally took ownership.
