I sent some older conservative family members and acquaintances this opinion piece:

Right before I did, I questioned myself: "Should I send this to them? Aren't they just going to stop talking to me, or tell me to 'stop bothering them about quote-unquote politics'?" It didn't take long for me to realize, NO, I should DEFINITELY burst their little bubble, and if I don't try, nobody else ever fucking will!
