I'm always amazed at how, when you start having REAL discussions with people around you, how pretty much everyone realizes that something is awfully wrong with where society is headed, yet they're doing nothing about it. I think it comes down to most people not knowing what to do, not understanding the power of individual and local actions.
I think most people, deep down, want to take responsibility, want to do something worthwhile, want to make the world a better place. I think that what's truly needed at this moment in time, is inspiration by example.
