My brother is open to these kinds of things and I have had conversations with him about it but I don't think he has ever done any research. Most young people seem to be aware that there is something wrong with the world today even if they don't realise what it is.
I have tried to explain it to my mum, several times, but she is fully indoctrinated into the system (bless her) and thinks this is how the world is supposed to be. She always has my back so I don't like to upset her, which is why I don't tell her anything she doesn't need/want to know.
Some people have called me "the caveman" which would make my dad positively prehistoric by comparison. I love my dad but I can't have a deep conversation with the man without him thinking im weak or an idiot so I don't bother.
Most of my family disowned me when I was on the drugs so I don't really speak to them that much...
I can talk to my friends about this stuff but I don't really have that many friends. I have always been a "people person". For a long time I hated everyone, including myself (I still do to a certain extent but I don't let it rule me). At the end of the day it just isn't worth it, all I want is some peace. I might only know true happiness when im dead.
Sorry about putting the downer on your thread bro.
Wow, thanks for sharing your story. I guess we all come from different paths, but it's the mutual goal that we all have that had us united here, and I think it's good that we can support each other when needed and talk about stuff how "insane" they may appear.

My sister has displayed hostility and disgust the few times I mentioned alternative sites and views. My mother is more accepting of what I do, but still does not really read outside mainstream news. So, I generally keep quiet about this stuff around them. My social and communication skills, including coming up with things to say on the fly, are quite poor, so I am not even sure how I would go about telling them anyway. And believe me, seeing this stuff, there are certainly times when I myself would rather still be asleep, so I can certainly empathize with them. On top of that, with so many sites giving different views on things, it is difficult to be absolutely sure what is right. It would not really be a good idea to tell others of this stuff if you are not certain of it yourself. I look at stuff all over the place, so I am certainly not an expert in any field. Interestingly enough, though, they are both fully convinced that the official story of the JFK assassination is a lie, among a few others. Ironic then that they do not question the official story of 9/11.
I have a friend that actually got me into this "field" in the first place several years ago, introducing me to Jesse Ventura.
He knows the truth, but seems to have one foot in each side of reality.
He knows that there are a few that run things, but he also seems to believe in the political system and watch every debate and really believe that voting will result in major change.
So you could say he's half-man, half-sheep.
I reject Fakebook, Twatter and those shitty sites, and when my girlfriend ask me who I'm talking to, I just say that I'm on a site discussing pretty much everything which isn't a lie.
I was surprised when her sister last winter brought up Illuminati and the music industry. I always considered her to be one of the most ignorant people when it comes to world view, but man, did she take me by surprise.
I wish it had it like you Kung Fu, where these stuff would be discussed at the dinner table like it wasn't more controversial than talking about how my day at work was.
