The Individual is Powerful

When faced with the fact that if humanity doesn't change, the environment, our civilisation and most if not of all our species will die, it is easy to feel powerless.

What can man do against such reckless hate?

But in the mission of saving ourselves and our planet the individual is the most powerful tool we have.

An individual can reject consumerism, the consumerism that causes environmental destruction, massive poverty, exploitation and inequality. An individual can reject carnivorous and omnivorous diets and realise that animals are our peers, our fellow earthlings, our equals in all the ways that matter. An individual can reject the racism that divides so many, causes so many to fall victim to hardship and harm. An individual can reject the apathy that permeates so much of society and its institutions.

Be the individual who does all of these things, be the individual who cares about the planet, their fellow humans and animals. Be the individual who wants the world and its inhabitants to survive, thrive and do so for billions of years.
