The Fate Of This Country
The fate of this country is decided not by those who have opinions, but by those who don't.Which is most people, at least when it comes to politics. They don't bother themselves with such things because they are too busy dealing with their jobs, their relationships, trying to pay their bills...Life is not only a struggle, for the majority, it's a bloody busy one. But we need to take the time to look at what is going on around us, what's being done in our name, because if we drop our guard, as history teaches us so clearly, all sorts of infamy can sneak in and set up home. And is it REALLY just time that stops us from giving our coat to the man freezing in the street (as someone I know did recently)? Is it JUST mental preoccupation that keeps us from forming our own opinions about the Afghan War rather than regurgitating whatever we read in the Sun or the Daily Mail? I don't think it is, you know.
