I have modestly changed the viewpoints of a few individuals on specific topics after extended private dialogue a few times. I've also failed to do even that, and more often failed than succeeded. This is how I know the value of my viewpoint on current events.
Therefore I resolutely hold fast to the timeless and unchanging TRUTH and VICTORY that is the Church of the SubGenius in my public discourse.
