Vindication!

It must be a wonderful feeling for you...to finally be vindicated as NOT the family loon!! LOL (the way I am now).
Just remember how you felt when the tidal wave of truth washed over you...I went into a 6-month depression. That depression turned into anger and has stayed with me all these years. For your family, I would suggest explaining things slowly...in layers, like an onion. Don't hit them with the grand scheme all at once...their brains will turn to mush and they won't absorb it all...it's too much! Just take time and build the story of how their entire lives have been a lie...church, bank, school, job, taxes, war, medicine, patriotism, "news",...all of it. Dig into the history of Walter Cronkite...show them what a POS he was and that they trusted him in their living room every night...start there. Then build on the rest and how every layer of the onion is based on a lie.
You will need, however, to let them know what they can do to fix things...that this doesn't have to be some post-apocalyptic 'Mad Max' movie story. They'll need some kind of hope to pull them out of the funk you're about to expose to them. Good luck, and good job!!
