Do not try to convince...

...him of anything. The more you try and convince someone of something, it becomes more about ego and being right than it is critical thinking or evaluating something from both sides. I also believe that for someone to understand motives and the "why" people do certain things, it requires deeper levels of psychology and understanding propaganda and PR. I mean understanding further than 1 or 2 levels deep. Understanding things from the core.

When you watch documentaries like 'Zeitgeist' or 'Thrive', when you understand 'war is a racket', when you understand 'the creature from jeckyll island'... then it becomes easier to see the motives and the deeper levels of all of this. Then when you have Kerry and Obama trying to convince the public to go to war in Syria using tried and true old methods, you expected it and saw it coming MILES away...

Anyway, trying to convince someone of something they don't _want_ to see is an exercise in futility. When you look at well done documentaries and start putting the WHOLE picture together, then it becomes really hard not to see the plain truth right in front of your eyes. The information is out there for him, easy to find too! If he doesn't want to see it, you won't convince him.

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
