My efforts are focused on the liberation of this planet's human race from its own suite of destructive reality narratives. While we can't blame anyone else for how completely lost we are as an intelligent, reasoning species, that doesn't mean that everyone deserves to be forever crippled by the kinds of impossible belief systems that have been imposed upon us by the most aggressive, self-assured, and (therefore) stridently ignorant among us.
As far as any need for success is concerned, I don't have to be the one who ultimately transforms the mindset, but if I can be one who "starts that orange" for others to finish, then I'll be okay with that. It's a huge effort, but I definitely gain in simply knowing what I need to know to even be involved in this effort. It's like that ancient axiom "In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is king". That's true, and that priceless clarity is the real reward for being involved in this effort. No one can hoodwink you, oppress you, or even inconvenience you, and that's a pretty wonderful realization.
