  •  Patience, and drinking (9+ / 0-)

    I'm not joking.  I don't bother trying to educate anyone from there anymore that I communicate with on Facebook.  I'm pretty quiet when I go "home."  Just sit in the Olde Fort Pub, swig Budweiser and ask, "So, how is that (being a Republican) working out for you?"  

    They have to find the solution themselves.

    •  They need their mental frame to crash. (4+ / 0-)

      Everything, even clearly contradictory information, gets crammed into the pre-existing framework, and it's very difficult to change that until the whole frame comes crashing down during acute personal tragedy or betrayal, or a generational shift with a new frame. I'd guess the latter is the best hope for changing large swaths of population, focus on the young people and get them educated before they are trapped.

      Of course, we all do the same thing to some extent.
