Dealing with the Brainwashed Masses...

Many people who are just recently waking up are not sure how to deal with people who are brainwashed. They wish to help them but they don't know how exactly to go by doing it. I am not advocating some sort of "method" or anything of the sort, but I would like to explain some common pitfalls and misperceptions people have about how to deal with these 'types'. ~ Chris

Television especially tries to turn us all into marketers, we are told we need to "sell ourselves" etc. and "create an image" and blah blah blah. This can rub off on you in ways you do not even realize, for example, many people waste a lot of their time trying to convince brainwashed people that they are right and the other person is wrong. The problem with this is the brainwashed person is not privy to all the information you are privy too, be it due to willful ignorance or just simply being uninformed, they cannot process your level of thought because it is completely foreign to them. Even if it stings your tongue, you have to try and work with them first, understand where they are coming from, and then explain to them in as straightforward a manner as possible "the way things are."

Lots of people want to tailor their message special to suit the person, that is fine to an extent, but I believe if it removes your quality of being straightforward (because you're trying to "sell" someone on an idea) then it loses a lot of its power and effectiveness. People need to be told the truth, the truth will set you free, I know in my own personal life that the truth hurts, but it is the only thing which will set you free, and that's the god damnedest truth! That is why I try to be as straightforward and truthful as I possibly can be, only a true friend will put their friendship on the line by telling you something you don't want to hear, because some things are more important than being liked.

The reality is telling someone the truth is the most respectful and caring thing you can do, it is also one of the most difficult, but that is only the case because people are surrounded by so many lies. When you become truthful in your entire way of being it is like opening up a door to a new reality, a world of honesty and acceptance and appreciation for the world and people as a whole. When you're living a lie you have nothing, can be nothing, and can accomplish nothing, you're a perpetual misery machine. It is a miserable existence but people do it because it allows them to fit in, our society is sick, living truthfully and honestly is the only cure.
