Yeah, it's the same with me. I have told my best friend, and she does not want to listen to it, "it is depressing" I have told some friends, one is
open minded and has listened to some of what I have said, the others are incredulous and even hostile. The same reasons, "That could never happen",
"they are protecting us", "There could never be a WW3 because nobody would use nukes", some even say, "The economy has not collapsed, it's only
a temporal recession, they said it will get better soon" and if somebody does listen, they retort, "But what we do? Just live your life and if it
starts, it starts for everybody" I will broadly categorise these opinions as the sheep-mind.
I have given up telling others now. Not only is it pointless to do so, but the reactions you get for your courtesy in trying to help your fellow
citizen is discouraging.
Edit. Another sheep-mind view, "Where are you getting your information from, the internet? Anybody could say anything on the internet. It's not
valid." Right, and I suppose CNN is?
