Changing the world is almost impossible for people that have no say in important matters that happen in their countries. The power of a regular individual is so low that they can’t influence anything, including local government, which is the lowest form of a ruling system. A lone individual can speak, but their voice will echo through the emptiness that is around them. The only way that an individual can affect the government and rules they create is to join up with others.
How to make politicians act?
It’s a well-known fact that politicians aren’t willing to face issues that plague their communities. They will do many things to avoid dealing with problems that won’t benefit them, even though those problems affect every individual in the world. Government officials should represent people and their will, rather than pushing projects and laws that benefit them on a personal basis. If you want to change, then you will have to do something to make it happen.
The only way people can create change is to unite and march under one flag, the flag of the people. Government officials will have to act when a considerable number of people go out to the streets and push an idea in their faces. Even this is hard to do as it takes only one misstep for those people to flag a meeting as something of political action from an opposing party.
Creating a movement that can affect those in the government is hard, and forcing those people to act is even harder. It takes a lot of effort to create a movement that won’t be dismissed as a political creation. A lot of individuals must work hard to create something that will force politicians out of their comfort zones and into the streets.
The Internet is a powerful tool
Social networks are great for connecting people with similar views. They are also great places to collect support for various causes, including the struggles to force governments and other ruling bodies to pay attention to issues that concern people. Trying to affect the political vision of climate change is nearly impossible without the support of either a lot of people or organizations that hold some form of power.
Turning toward non-government organizations for support is something many people opt for as some of those groups have a massive following that can change the outcome of any meeting. But, you have to remember that political parties have their hands everywhere and they will use anything they can to discredit movements that are asking for change. Asking for help from non-government organizations is excellent as long as you are 100% certain that the said organizations don’t have any political affiliations.
The Internet is perfect for gathering support from others that support changes you fight for. You can create various groups whose members will spread the word about your goals and how you want to try to achieve them. Many people care about the environment, and thus it won’t be hard to find a vast amount of people that will support you.
The protection of environment benefits everyone
Occupy movements are growing stronger from day to day, and they are making politicians question their standpoints. You should join one of the groups as well and go into the streets when the call comes. Demonstrations will get the attention of politicians, and they will try to use anything they can to discredit people that demonstrate. This is why violence is never an answer as the general population doesn’t support people who go around and destroy property.
Occupy demonstrations are happening all around the world, and the lack of violence is forcing governments to listen and act. The lack of any reasons to ignore protests forces them to address issues and do something about them.
Fighting for changes in the law that will protect the environment is a long process that requires setting long-term goals. Every little move that a government makes is a significant victory for people that are supporting the change. Everyone knows how hard it is to make the governing system introduce changes that benefit everyone rather than just them and their financial supporters in the form of big companies and enterprises.
