People say to you, What can we do? Theres nothing we can do, and that is exactly where they are wrong! Ordinary people can and must force the
government elected by the people and by referendum, to carry out the tasks for which they were elected. Ordinary people possess enormous power. One of
the greatest weapons that humans possess - thanks to their intelligence - is the power of inertia. It is a non-violent force and that is best, as
violence breeds more violence. Christ said, He who lives by the sword will die by the sword.
In Beijing, China, a man on his own and unarmed was able to stop a tank with his presence alone. How did he achieve that? Because the soldiers in the
tank didn't DARE run him over, they were enthralled by the self-sacrificing act of the unarmed man. Millions of people witnessed it on television.
Ghandi managed, on his own, to prevent terrible bloodshed. Lord Mountbatten himself realized that if hed sent 50 000 troops to Calcutta, they would
have been massacred and yet, Gandhi, one man, averted a massacre through non-violent means.
It isn't enough to say the system is bad, they should change it. They - whom do we mean by They? The parliamentarians, the heads of state, all those
elected by the people, by you. In order to change the system, the laws must change, along with their leaders. You must force the politicians who
represent you to change the inefficient laws, the inefficient system, once and for all. The politicians are generally too idle to undertake the task
on their own. Each law requires a great deal of work and responsibility, and thats often too much to ask, because, as Ive said, most of them are there
for the prestige and big salary. Incidentally, if you want to attract good politicians, start by cutting their salary to that of a suburban bank
manager and you will find that there are fewer applicants, but those who remain will be sincere human beings and genuinely want to do something for
You are the people who voted for these politicians and most of you have had enough - they havent done what you expected them to do for our country.
Some day, the time will come when the citizens must force them to do their jobs: to fulfill the promises they made to the majority who elected them,
before the election.
When there is no other solution, ordinary citizens can force politicians to do their duty - they must. Careful - we are not talking about anarchy
here, just discipline. In a country you need the discipline, not of a totalitarian regime, but of a democracy in which promises are kept. If promises
are broken, it is up to you to act because it is abhorrent that politicians disappoint millions of people when theyre in power and fool people until
the next election. These eminent politicians would be better off doing their jobs rather than spending 80 per cent of their time arguing among
themselves over internal party politics.
