On sensitive areas, it can often be helpful to agree to disagree, drop the subject, at least for now, and concentrate on areas of discussionn where you can find yourselves in more agreement.
One should also never miss an opportunity to offer your listeners something better.
When Ron Paul talks about the FED, for example, he doesn't only point out the dangers and irresponsibility of wrecking the global economy with central banking and its fiat money. He (and others like von Mises, Rothbard, Sennholz, et al) also remind us how much better off we would all be, and how much more secure our future would be, with sound money. We are reminded about how much more prosperous an economy which avails itself of gold and silver (and BITCOIN, no doubt)--a choice in money--over a badly defective and corrupt current system would be, and how worthy a goal it is to strive for!
Find opportunities to offer more simple and complete explanations in the case of "conspiracy" and, if accepted, go on from there. There may indeed be issues like 9-11, which are just too sensitive for rational discussion on his part in the foreseeable future,but there are also a lot of events which may be discussed where your opinions about conspiracy explanations may be accepted as helpful; perhaps those where you are discussing events which are deep enough in the past so that it may discredit the present criminal elites on some issues without provoking any feeling on his part that you are "crazy".
Properly researched and articulated conspiracy theories can often make events much clearer and simpler then the convoluted nest of lies and coverups offered by establishment sources.
A bit of patience goes a long way. It is as difficult for a person who is resistant to "conspiracy theories" to accept them, as it would be for you to completely deny such an approach even when the conspiracies have been shown to exist.
I hope that this is helpful.
PEACE AND FREEDOM!!
