It is every thinking person’s duty to future generations and to all life on planet Earth, to become an activist at whatever level their individual circumstances and personal interests allow.
Take up your paddle
New Zealanders’ situation (together with the rest of humanity) is as on a ramshackle raft being sucked inexorably towards the thundering falls ahead. The nations of the Earth are seated around the four sides of the raft, each paddling in the direction indicated by the side of the raft they are seated on. Thus the raft revolves endlessly and history is doomed to repeat itself. Meanwhile, the thunder grows ever louder in the ears of the hapless passengers and their crew. Only an international coordination of organised activists will ever get the raft to the safe bank of the river upstream from the looming disaster.
Accept the challenge, join an active group: take up your paddle and become a contributor to the movement for change!
Contributing does not necessarily mean volunteering labour – for many people in full-time employment and/or overwhelmed with family obligations, that is unrealistic. Regularly donating to a cause, is to be active in it. The time spent earning that donation is the equivalent to time spent as a volunteer directly active in the cause.
