I find this a really important topic. Sort of - Identify the psychosis. As Freeman says you can't help those who don't want to be helped, and as BA says it is denial. Coming from fear.
The phrase "I can't believe.." comes up a lot.
"If ______ was the case, that would mean ____, and I CAN'T BELIEVE that's really going on"
As if a person's belief projects forward a reality that allows their world to survive. Is this like a child who closes his eyes so nobody can see him?
My favorite non-sequitor is, "if this was true, there would be no way to hide it."
Me: "Just look at the all the evidence of 9/11 and foreknowledge."
Critic: "Well people who were trying to run the world would never be THAT stupid to drop clues like that, therefore it CAN'T be true."
back to square one!!!
