Political powerlessness is a personal choice

"In our democracy, even with its inadequacies, powerlessness is a personal choice. Everyone has some capacity to influence others. Everyone can visit their member, write to the paper, speak on talk-back radio and influence their community group, church, business or union. Those really concerned can join political parties. We can all contribute to a shared campaign for a more secure, fair, sustainable and vibrant Australia and a more just and peaceful world."
