You have, of course, raised the crucial issue...what can we do to correct what we perceive as error? I think the only way we can change anything is to commit our lives to effecting whatever small changes we can. And committing our lives means just that--the minutes, hours, and days are given over to the challenge, and from our exertion we must draw our own pleasure. It just sometimes seems that for every 5 evil-doers there are 50 passive citizens and 1 person willing to make the commitment to effect change.
