Reminds me of my ex: as far as he was concerned, if anything went wrong in the world, and especially for him (e.g. if he made a mistake), it was the fault of women, blacks and gays (but said in very insulting terms which I won't use here).

Herman is right about this: the people who most need to see the world as it is, may not be capable of it, without major attitude reconstruction. I got absolutely nowhere in nine years of constant effort. One article, which he wouldn't read (except to insult the writer) wouldn't get anywhere.

I've seen a very effective-looking house-brick somewhere... <muses>  :D
