I’m afraid you are simply wrong there as it’s a snowball effect no matter how you slice it. Does it not take 1 snowball to start an avalanche? One person starts a thought and gets other people to go with it then they get other people to go with it and it takes off. All it takes is time.A single effort is pointless if the vast majority just do what they want and carry on regardless.
Only a few years my friend, we are a stubborn bunch of young people who hold our beliefs true to the end and will die upholding them. Im surrounded by them everyday so I can tell you, we may back down temporarily but that’s to gather our forces and come back stronger until we succeed. That’s one of the things I hate about gen Z while respect at the same time, they just refuse to quit no matter how many times you kick them in the face.Years and years down the line when this young generation get into politics and high powered government positions then and only then might we see something drastic start to happen on a global scale, that is if they still harbour their beliefs as they get older.
Hello; I figured this out decades ago. There was a movement called ZPG (zero population growth) around during the 70's . It was fairly widely know but not very widely practiced. Too bad the concept did not catch on since at that time there was still a fighting chance to mitigate not only population issues but some of the other building problems. My striving to have a limited personal impact is not some idealistic view that there is now a chance to "fix" things. I do the things I do for my own view of how to conduct myself after becoming aware, not in any expectation other will follow. Unfortunately to use a an old phrase, those boats have already. I do understand my lifestyle is not going to make a difference in the overall scheme of things, but it suits my sense of being decent I guess.But your ethic only works if EVERY single person on the planet recognises they have an impact. A single effort is pointless if the vast majority just do what they want and carry on regardless. And that's what's been happening for decades.
Hello; Had I written such a statement it may well get me banned. I do strongly disagree with you but do not have the privilege to make counter statements. I do not plane to report you as that will likely get this thread closed. May I suggest you keep such to your self or start a PM.Original post edited. Removing political content.
Jeesh, thanks for not reporting me! But i'm pretty sure the "eye in the sky" were aware of what i'd put before you even saw it.Hello; Had I written such a statement it may well get me banned.
