Robert Reich on dealing with regressive relatives
Over holiday meals. Even though I agree with Reich is this video, in that he counters several regressive talking points with facts, this never works with regressives. They don't accept facts, instead seeing some socialist conspiracy hiding within them. Calm, rational discussion is wasted on them. My strategy is to just tell them NO POLITICS at family gatherings, period. Let's just focus on family love. Otherwise, just write off this 20% of so of the regressive US population and focus on the rest when making fact-based arguments to sway voters.
