he knows that "something is off", but always cuts me off when I get too deep into the subject.
He, like many other people I talk with, seem "awake" enough to realize that there is something deeply wrong, but almost none of them want to find out *what*. Maybe it's because they'd have to admit to themselves that they, in some small way, contributed to the problems we now face, or that they allowed themselves to be fooled. Or maybe it's just a case of "let someone else handle it". Who knows.
I at least got him to understand inflation, though...but only because I refused to shut up about it. ;D
