Most people will tell you about the big changes that need to be done. I say, we should start with the little changes.
Reason: They are more easily achieved and they can be cumulative.
When we occupiers go back to their homes (Be it in heart or in the flesh) we should all become agents of change. Too often we have been apathetic to the system, because we were lead to believe that we couldn't do a damn thing.
This movement is about change. And the first change I have seen is the change of people who were apathetic, to people who want to get something done.
When you return to your communities, to your homes, your families and friends, How you become a force of change?
I am not saying to become some radical corporate-hating, government-nay-saying grouch who gets into hysterics in person and speaks in capslock online. Far from it. However, I am asking you, how will you bring about a better life for yourselves and those around you?
Will it be by volunteering? By altering your diet, your habits as a consummer? You see, they may not seem as grandiose as being where the meat of a protestor meets the steel of the footsoldiers of the 1%, but they on the long run are easily accessible and do-able.
But the question remains, what are your plans? Talk to me!!
