When the darkness obscures the light.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
I’m recycling yet another tag from last Monday. As you will notice, I don’t let any pass by. Not that I don’t like to take a wander through my library, but I still prefer to offer some diversity.
This tag amuses me. It partly echoes the Bill Nye tag, which shed some light on a delicate subject. Of course, this one is just as important. I already hear some people telling me that the ethnic cause is much more important and blah, blah, blah. Yet, wasting their time trying to place their cause on a scale leads me to believe that they have no solution to bring to the table. If only to give up on the internet and social networks for the benefit of their fellow citizens.
Conspiracy theories are problematic in that a debate about conspiracy theories has a strong chance of escalating the situation. However, isolating your followers is probably worse. So what to do? One of my colleagues once suggested taking the baby steps approach. One step at a time, one argument at a time. However, it should be a compelling argument. It should inspire the person you’re speaking with to have a strong reflection demonstrating your solidity and the following equation: Friend + Rejection of the conspiracy = Acceptable. This could help, in the long run, to moderate your friend’s comments if you don’t have time for a long and painful debate.
