Praise, I agree with you. The first thing most of us in a democracy should do to bring about change is vote; I do that. The second thing is to advocate particular positions, in the hopes of being persuasive enough to convince others to vote the same way we do. I do that too. Doesn't sound like "action" in quite the same way that manning the barricades does, but it's kind of how democracy works, and I believe in it. Perhaps this isn't the ideal forum in which to apply my powers of persuasion to this issue, but who knows? In my more confident moments, I like to think that I can win some hearts and minds with my eloquence. Dare to dream.
