  •  One antidote to Fox (4+ / 0-)

    And easier said than done, I know - living in Texas and having a boatload of near relations in Orange County, CA.

    But this is key

    isolation from other views and other types of people who could show them other cultures really aren't so scary
    and this
    They feel this way of thinking normal and everyone shares these crazy views.
    To whatever extent we can, gently, let them see that there are other ways of thinking, we can provide an antidote. Look at the effect that GLBT folks have had by coming out. More of us liberals/progressives/Dems need to "come out" too.
