There is nothing more frustrating than listening to an infected person quote opinion but when confronted, not having pertinent information to support the statement. To avoid cross contamination, insist that anyone who is to partake in this risky behavior must practice safe stats. Of course, the best prevention is abstaining from political debate altogether.
Many of the preceding steps can be taken to cure a mildly infected person, but if you notice that when talking about politics or activism a person becomes highly agitated when presented with a counter point, they may be too far gone to save. At times a planned intervention can be planned but like the debating tip, be sure to come well armed with facts.
A New Day Dawning
I first became aware of this virus when my moderate view was attacked most viciously by an infected political pundit. Even when I quoted a recorded and established fact from history, the person claimed it was a ploy by the radical opposition and became extremely agitated. It was painfully evident that the mental processes of this particular victim had become so scrambled with over exposure that there was no longer rationality existing within their being. Some of the primary signs and symptoms of I.I.P. include the following factors:
~ Reduced awareness of reality
~ Cognitive impairment, or poor thinking skills
~ Seeing things that don't exist (hallucinations)
~ Agitation, irritability or combative behavior
~ Little or no activity or little response to the environment
~ Extreme emotions, such as fear, anxiety, anger or depression
In conjunction with delirium-like symptoms, I.I.P. victims often act as if hypnotized. Like hypnosis, it can result in factual confabulation. This is the tendency to confuse fantasy as fact and in some cases, mimics the characteristics of delirium. The possibility that novel information elicited during duration of this illness may be confabulated must be evaluated if the illness is to be treated properly. Again, a watchful eye is required.
If one were to follow the steps outlined above and take measures to prevent this invasive disease to overwhelm our society, we may just see its end. It is very important to understand that the infected are all around us: In our workplaces, our schools and our homes. It is up to us who are still centered in our thinking to combat this terrible plague spreading among our people and confusing our collective reality. Only when a Nation works together does it reach it true potential. As Americans, we owe it to one another to ensure that we are able to do just that. We must make every effort to combat this plague before its tentacles reach the very heart of our collective reason. The very future of America may just depend on it.
Be aware and be safe, my friends.
