Your children will look at you 10 years from now with nothing but contempt

The following was sent to me by an anonymous source, and has asked me to print it.  So here it is.

“You see that the country is collapsing into a fetid pit of paper pushing, over regulation and newspeak, and yet you do nothing.  After all what on earth can you do?  You are but one man/woman.  Someone forgot to tell that to Rosa Parks.

You sit at home, watching your TV and mumble softly into your Shiraz because there is nothing you can do.  Someone forgot to tell that to Ghandi.

Another regulation is dumped on you from a great height and you grumble, but carry on regardless because there is nothing you can do.  Someone forgot to tell Martin Luther King that there was nothing he could do.

You voted for the Lib/Con coalition, but you forgot that their best intentions would be destroyed by the beast that is parliament, so you carry on regardless because there is nothing you can do.  If only someone had told Lech Wa??sa this.

You read the Daily Mail and chunter about the madness you see there.  But again you do nothing because there is nothing you can do.  If only Neslon Mandella had listened to the naysayers 

Your children will come to you 10 years from now and ask you WHY you let this all happen.

And you will answer that you were afraid.  You were afraid of being judged.  you were afraid you will be ridiculed.  You were afraid that the agents would come knocking on your door and ask you for your “papers”.  You were afraid that you were wrong.  you were afraid that you were right.

Can you look your child in the eye and say you are handing over a world fit for them to live in?

I merely ask the question”

Worth thinking about.
