– is something I need to work on.
Over the weekend had a very distressing conversation with E and others. Wanted to discuss how we as a family can develop something of a plan B in case situation with Ebola leads to a crisis. Failed totally: was accused of espousing conspiracy theories, believing political hacks(!), of spreading panic, gullibility and downright idiocy, &&&. No matter what I said, no matter what examples I gave of disasters we personally lived through and how they were downplayed, covered up and misrepresented by the government and the media, and that survivors were people who relied on themselves, not on government – Chernobyl, 9/11, hurricane Sandy – I was laughed at and shouted dawn.
What to do and how to make them listen?
