This is an insight as to how I think about political action.
The more people working on an issue – the less I’m inclined to work on it.
While the less people working on an issue – the more i’m inclined to work on it.
With so few activists doing much about a whole range of issues, this is the most realistic way I know of achieving results.
This runs in the opposite direction to the idea expressed by many individuals, that we need large demonstrations that will attract a very large numbers of people.
It’s the ‘one last push’ idea that keeps being pushed by many campainging organisation, but it just does not work.
Many of these large demonstrations are just very symbobic in nature, and have become so common that they are easily ignored by the powers that be..
