RE: This just got personal!
There is something that "wakes people up" in the conspiracy communities. I'm sure if you asked your family members individually what is was that first did this, they all may have different answers. Mine personally was when I was recommended to watch Zeitgeist around 2007/8. Its irrelevant what the subject matter is... the truth when you look at it is you have a piece of literature/film that makes the person (your family member) question the validity of everything they have previously known, took for granted and seen as "truth" for most, if not all their life.

It is this that holds the key in my eyes.

From experience I would say not to argue their points/beliefs as it will lead to nothing. The funny thing about "truth" is that you could potentially know it, yet that is no guarantee that anybody would believe you no matter how hard you tried. You could compare beliefs, do they believe in numerology, freemasonry, reptilillians, chemtrails.... if they say they disagree with anything you have said, ask them how do they know? You could compare different theories to different religion types... asking how do they know.

How do they know? They would have used a logic base to form their initial conclusion. Ask them what their logic base is... can they describe it... have they ever even considered it? What makes it valid and what are those validations based upon? Dont get caught up and try to address the answers but keep asking the questions.... why.... what makes it valid?.... how is (such and such/so and so) an authority to answer.

Get them to explain it all to you because only they can see the irrationality in it themselves...... nobody can tell them, even armed with "truth" Drinking Beverage

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.
I am a rock, I am the sky, the birds and the trees and everything beyond.
I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.

Brian this is the age of disinformation. Your best bet for somewhat factual and center-politic american information is fox, rush limbaugh and drudge report with his headlines. All the rest that is big has been bought and paid for, sorry mate. I'm just an Aussie but over here our state/international broadcaster has fully bought into political correctness but at least most of our other media hasn't fully succumbed although we are taking our lead from america Undecided
