Change takes time. The only affect I look for is to change my little corner of the world where I can. One mind at a time is fine. Actions speak louder than words and yet the pen IS mightier than the sword. Perhaps you need to realize that you never know how many your words reach.
One mind here, another there. Those minds change others, perhaps not yet, perhaps an attitude change in their children that flows through the generations. IMHO it is not necessarily the great orations that change us, it is the resultant change in the individual minds that flows forward on the winds of time. One mind at a time.

I think it is wise . . . or best . . . or most productive . . . to have a passion for whatever one is writing about.
