I would tell people the truth, but I would be careful how I presented it. If you are in a panic, then people will think you are crazy simply because you act like it. If you are calm and show that you are not "out of it" then more people might listen to you.
If I TRULY believed in it, and it was something people needed to know, then I'd tell them. I might write a book and make a little money too. haha<br />
Being branded a "loon" isn't something I'm really scared of. I'm already pretty comfortable being "eccentric", mostly due to what I believe and how I live my life. :)<br />
As long as it's not on the level of being put in a straight jacket. And from what I've seen of people, you can get away with a WHOLE LOTTA CRAZY before anyone comes to take you away.
I don't know...I think that most of us have seen someone and thought them loony at one time or another. But being "loony" isn't necessarily bad- I mean, little kids can be loony and silly and creative and deliciously happy. I suppose it depends on how you look at it.
Some conspiracy theorists have been way off base and many suffer from the same sorts of delusionary thinking that complacent people engage in. So I don't think there is a general statement that can be made about them. There are nice loons, harmless loons, demented loons, delusional, attention seeking, and homocidal loons. There is truth in some and disillusionment in others. They are as unique as people themselves.
hell yeah ASAP!!!!!
