As Sir Isaac Newton noted almost 330 years ago, a body at rest tends to stay at rest unless acted upon by an outside force, and by the same token, something in motion tends to stay in motion unless an outside force affects it. Change requires an outside force. Whether that force comes from technological change, societal change, or an individual’s decision to force change on themselves or others, change only happens when we work for it.
If you don’t like what is, then fight for what could be. If you don’t act, then change will happen TO you, instead of BECAUSE of you.
