after we hit bottom, they will listen to us!
Hitting bottom must mean something different to you than it may mean to Mr. Archbold.
Most people DO learn the hard way. I know of too many people who are basically good people...but who have bought into a lie. When they see the fruits of their lie, they WILL want to change. Some won’t....but that is always the case. I happen to believe that the majority will wake up...when the horror fully surrounds them. Will I see them wake up ? I don’t know...because I think we are in for a long time of devastation.
Most people don’t learn to check their core assumptions. That is a fact.
