Damned If I'll Give Up Before It's Done

Why do I do this? Why do I care? Am I really helping? Won't it happen anyway, regardless of my efforts? Do we need to be conscious of what we do? It'll probably happen…, maybe…, but that's not good enough is it? And given the resistance…, there is a certain amount of sheer bloody mindedness to this. It's the right thing to do so we should do it, and damned if I'll give up before it's done.

If I'm not right, then I want to bloody know why. I've proffered a theory, it needs to be disproved or accepted, it hasn't been yet (not that it's been really tested, it needs to be).

I'm doing this because it is me and I should be able to contribute as me, everybody should, I passionately believe this.

It would be weird if I were the only one thinking these thoughts – and I'm not, that's how I know I'm on the right track. But the tipping point to mass understanding and mass change has not been reached, and might not be.

When these ideas have been understood they can't be let go of.

I want a world where people are free. Free to choose how they contribute. Where people are free to produce where they see a need. Where people get every chance to make good, not just a second chance. Where the method of contribution isn't predicated into steps, life cycles and job definitions, but is open to every sort.
