"Activism Defined"


  

          

Activism means that you are aware of your environment and you try to take an active role in trying to change problems around in your community. The biggest form of activism is a personal revolution, raising your family, doing unto others as you would have them do to you, being polite to people... that's the first step of activism: Change yourself, and be about what you say you are about. Then the extra step is to go out into the community and organizing, and doing things, and saying things, and speaking up, and not just letting shit go down. You'll organize and do something about it. That's activism. -Talib Kweli


it all starts with self!
This is one of the best definitions of activism!
thanks Talib!

I read that ish this AM and got all inspired. 'secially when he talkes of raising a family -- a friend of mine once said that one of the most revolutionary things you can do is raise a family! I couldn't agree more. We gotta raise the next generation with an understanding of our connectedness -- to each other and to the Earth (mama).

Sure it's old news, but it can never be said enough:

""Dundee" was originally used to refer to the texture of certain fabrics. If an article was made of vintage leather, raw denim, canvas, hemp, rough linen or cotton, it had the potential to be classified as some "Dundee" or rugged shit. It comes from Crocodile Dundee but it ain't got nuffin' to do with Paul Hoagan. It's more about a lifestyle now. It's about doing what you gotta do to survive in the wilderness. It's about the balance between total control and wreckless abandon. The Dundee approach to life is adventure. It's about taming this beast of a world and the apparel needed to do so." - Black Thought

"It is not enough to be compassionate, you must act" --some button



What separates Progressives from discontents is a very personal thing.

The Progressive is willing to change themselves. They are willing to accept how they contribute to problems and change themselves on principle.

it feels good to get out and do things that relate to your personal beliefs. Setting an example is always the best way to go for the first step.
