Its the right thing to do, and it’s a start. Well done you guys.
Well done the youngsters. We aren’t hearing much about your protests on this side of the Atlantic, but you must have already put up a good account of yourselves to get this result. Keep going... for as long as it takes.
Young people have nothing to lose and everything to gain, it’s going to be your world the moment you have the vote. Perhaps you could put your own candidates forward to vote for. It would only be a question of time before you change the wallpaper, the carpet, and redecorated the Oval Office.
I think you might be getting the hang of real democracy too. It’s not about what people do in parliaments that affect people’s lives, and they don’t really know what’s going on so they don’t actually get a say in the decisions their country takes.
Real democracy is when the Government listens to the majority, not a minority who seem to have excess sway or power for some ‘politically correct’ reason. That’s why referendums are important now and again. Look at Brexit. That was a surprise result, The reality of trying to leave the EU is a bit of a joke. However, the Brits voted out, so other than walking around with a placard saying Brexit not a lot has happened except selling a lot of newspapers, and a lot of daft discussions on TV. The politicians are only just beginning to get to grips with the ramifications of calling the referendum.
This is just how it is in politics. However when people themselves decide to change, and to simply stop doing something like buying guns, the problem and the difficult politics is irrelevant.
At the moment in Europe, the Dutch are bringing in plastic free isles in one of their supermarket chains. As a matter of conscience. Well done the Dutch Supermarket. Very forward thinking. They have got biodegradable plastic trays that can go on the compost heap, just the thing to plant my spring seeds in next year if everyone rolls them out.
Its not legislation that people follow willingly. It’s a general opinion that something is good, and it benefits them, their families, and the planet. People are doing a great job. We don’t really want to leave our children and their children a trashed world.
