i think it boils down to responsibility, what are going to be the effects of your "revealing the truth" to people .
are you doing it to impress/astound others or are you willing to go the distance, holding that persons hand as you leave platos cave and step out into
the light, being there as that person gradually can stand on their own feet, and finally letting go so that person can walk their own path?
or are you looking for followers?
there are those who are too dependent on the illusion/system to be "freed" these people may even resort to violence of one degree or another, to
silence you, usully for your own good, why bring that kind of hassle into your life?
in other cases you could do great harm to that persons psyche/well being, in my case, for example, my grandma;
i suppose you could say I've been a conspiracy theorist since i was 12 yrs old when i 1st saw the horror behind the veil of the world [this is not
including my Valerie Moment and a mystical/supernatural experience i had when i was 7] back then, while i had friends, more like acquaintances, i did
not talk of these things, because i didn't consider the majority of my peers to be any where near my intellectual level, and those that were would
think i was nuts, not paranoia but a gradually expanding awareness of how things and people were in general.
should i have tried to explain these things to grandma? it saddens me still that i didn't didn't do so, but what was i gonna do? crush what few
paltry illusions she had left in life? society/the world used her up and discarded her, the best i could do was to deflect the worst of it on the sly.
grandma's safe now, the world can't F around with her anymore.
just let TCOTBIP* try to F around with me now, now that i have no hostages that can be used to keep me down/intimidated/quiet/inactive.
to sum it up, you just can't go around putting people through the " everything you know/were taught is a lie" experience, or as i prefer to call it
"The Short Sharp Shock" unless you are willing to go to the effort to stay with that person until they can fly with their own wings. anything less
is "casting pearls before swine", they will be trod under foot and the "swine" may very well rise up violently against you.

member Boncho's latest thread concerns what he calls the stupidity of using acronyms or terms like "they" because of their vagueness [and the fact
that you aren't really identifying anything/anybody] i did not contribute to that thread, because i didn't feel i had anything appropriate to say ,
however, composing this reply has changed this somewhat so i'll go post now that i do.
