I will describe what I struggle with, in hopes that someone can give me advice or perhaps increase understanding for others if nothing else:
- I am very politically...not well grounded lol I have a LOT to learn, and I am in the process of learning it.
- Concerning what I do think is going on, I still have no idea what steps to take to do anything about it - beyond what I do already: enticing others
to look into the issues (eg. my boyfriend is now a 'convert' on several issues he would have never imagined lol, I email excellent links and sources
to everyone I know) But that is just passing info around, just like we do here in discussions I suppose...nothing huge....
- Let me repeat - I have NO idea what to do about anything....
Maybe it is just the stage I am at with what I'm learning, or maybe it's because I haven't come across many good suggestions - because LOTS of
people have no idea what to do....it's tough...
- I feel overwhelmed with a lot of what's out there, not so sure what to believe and not believe, therefore uncertain as to what to act on in the
first place, nevermind HOW....confusion abounds! I'm in no place to trust my judgment on several issues yet....
- Protests and sharing info are great, but now they just have cops beating people for protests and they are often badmouthed in the MSM and ignored by
many as a fanatical nuisance. I am not saying protesting is worthless, I'm just saying, I hope there is more that can be done than demonstrations.
I think probably a lot of people can relate to these points.
There are no doubt other factors as well, some not so good either....
But I would really really appreciate any ideas as to what I can do to work against rights being taken away, NWO, whatever....from anyone....
(Obviously continuing to learn more is the thing to start with, which I am already doing.)
I think we should put a thread together that is exclusively 'What you can do about_____" in maybe each section or something. Or at least, people
collect stuff as they go along, and then put it into a post for others to copy, paste, throw into email forwards, send out to friends, whatever.
This has probably happened before, I just need to look around the board some more....
I have told my mom about many things that are taking place, had discussions with my father about them (learned most of it from him to start with) but
it's a sad thing - I am wondering if people find it all so overwhelming and surreal sometimes, or something, that they just can't see the point of
devoting tons of time towards change; they feel it would be worth a water molecule in a vast ocean where few others are contributing simultaneously.
So they go back to life as usual, default..
I watch my parents live precisely the same way they always have despite anything they 'realize' or believe.... and sometimes it makes my head want
Concerning environmental/world poverty issues - I had an argument today with my mother. My sister is getting married, and my mom was carrying on about
'getting started in life' etc.
I told her I want to just live out of a large suitcase someday if possible, be able to move around easily and freely and live very simply; conserve,
spend little - so does my boyfriend. Be able to be resilient, prepared for change....while using leftover resources to support good causes.
She took offense because I didn't believe what she was saying about couples with 'financial problems' being doomed, and how I need to have tons of
stuff and have a huge list for my bridal shower when I get engaged, and so on....
I told her not owning an HD TV or blender is not the equivalent of financial distress.....it's all how you see it.
She truly didn't understand what I was saying.
Yet she's the one supporting a family in the middle of a recession. I don't understand it..
And after all she claims to believe is occurring politically, socially....the state of the world....
It is very scary for some as well. To the point of people denying that anything is *really* happening out there that concerns their freedom or well
It's interesting anyhow.
