The power of change
When you look around and discover that it is not the world you want, you have the power and the right to do something about it. There are then two ways forward: commit to changing the system from within, build an alternative.
In these hours, many are in the streets protesting, others are going to live in remote communities. Some propose themselves in politics, others evade the laws. Some organise conferences in universities and hospitals, some build different universities and hospitals. Those who argue with teachers and headmasters in schools, those who send their children to study in the woods.
If you go the first way, ask yourself the following:
1- Do I have the power to change this part of the system?
2- Does the system want to change?
3- Is change possible in the short, medium or long term?
If you go the second way, instead:
1- What novelty do I want-propose?
2- Do experiments already exist in this regard?
3- Do I have enough courage to live differently?
In any case, no one can change the world on their own, and it is always worthwhile to find others who share your heart. But beware of the consequences of being part of something. Because a movement born of fear and anger always ends in a storm of anger and fear, while one born of desire always brings new ones.
And then what? Whatever your choice, once you have made your decision, cultivate the dream you carry with you and do not give up. Remember this: those who do not have a dream are destined to follow someone else’s dream.
