Because some people are too stubborn or too stuck in dysfunctional thinking patterns to hear the truth even when it hits them over the head, I suggest that we try a different approach: parody.
When a comic does satire -- an exaggeration of what we're thinking -- it can wake us up, so that we can see the truth and laugh at how we've been acting. That can give us the freedom to stop doing the same dumb thing and to try something new.
So put satirical slogans on stickers, emails and freeway blogs to snap people out of their coma, like (by way of example only):
