14. Right.

I used to use the model of a mobile hanging over a baby's crib, when I worked in human services. If one piece shifts its position, every other piece must move, as well. The same holds true in each of our individual lives, and the plain truth is that this is the level where all of the energy required for positive social/political change is found. Hoping that some noble "leader" will come and institute the changes necessary to improve our system is cousin to the thinking that some aliens or divinity will come down from the sky to save us.

That's not to say it's easy to make meaningful change. If it were easy, it would have been done already. Sometimes, the other pieces on a mobile are entrenched, and do their very best to hold the one in place. Yet change is constant; we can either work tomake things better, or sit by and watch this nation go down the drain.
