Ahhh, where do you begin? Do you play coy and clandestine in your hopes that you can eventually convince the person to let the mental shackles of A.I.D.S. ( Acquired Intelligence Deficiency Syndrome) fall away and judge the world on their own platform of observations?
More often not than yes, mental conditioning is a serious thing existing today. If your desire for someone compels you to overlook their beliefs, how is the shitstorm of negativity that comes with that said persons family, friends and associations eventually intrude on your freethought in a manner not neutral? Such as, "Hey Paul, what church do you attend?"
