How to Win Friends and Influence People

Using Dale Carnegie's Techniques for 9/11 Truth Advocates

Dale Carnegie's techniques for influencing people have been popular since 1912,
because they produce positive results for over 100 years.

Dale's first client was the staff of the YMCA.  His training has been hired by organizations
around the world, from Audi to the US Department of Veteran Affairs.

I periodically need to review these points myself.

Many organizations train their Sales Reps to use the Dale Carnegie techniques.
Most people are using Brand X (the official theory of 9/11)
We are educating people to use Brand Y (ask questions and get a new investigation)
We also want them to recommend Brand Y to their friends.
Salesmen cannot get people to switch to Brand Y by calling them stupid for using Brand X.
That approach only make people want to keep using Brand X.

Very few people in human history have been insulted into believing something, or against his will. Name me someone if you can. But there are many who will continue believing as they have, despite evidence, when they are insulted.

Twelve Ways to Win People to Your Way of Thinking 
(with my comments in parentheses)

  1. The only way to get the best of an argument is to avoid it. 
    (We can't just say nothing about 9/11.  But if the debate gets heated, let it cool off for a while.)

  2. Show respect for the other person's opinions. Never say "You're Wrong."
    (At least don't call the other person names)
  3. If you're wrong, admit it quickly and emphatically.
    (If we once believed the main stream media Bush Cheney theory of 9/11, admit it quickly.)
  4. Begin in a friendly way.
    (It is nice that you take your time to find out what really happened on 9/11.)
  5. Start with questions to which the other person will answer yes.
    (Would you agree that 9/11 was an unusual event?  Yes.
    Would you agree that no tower has come down just by fire?  Yes.

  6. Let the other person do a great deal of the talking. 
    (Chris Mohr talked for many videos)
  7. Let the other person feel the idea is his or hers. 
    (Be patient and let the other person come to 9/11 Truth Realization on their own.)
  8. Try honestly to see things from the other person's point of view. 
    ("I see your point that we need more scientific studies in journals"  "I see it is hard to believe anyone in our own government could be involved.")

  9. Be sympathetic with the other person's ideas and desires. 
    (I understand you want to believe your Government)

  10. Appeal to the nobler motives. 
    (We know you want truth and justice....)

  11. Dramatize your ideas.
    (Show scientific research, videos about 9/11)

  12. Throw down a challenge. 
    (OK, show me how the towers could have collapsed and body parts blown to bits without explosives)
