MichaelAnthony Lessons learned on social activism? (41) RE: Lessons learned on social activism? 09 Jan 01


My intention with this thread is not so to seek personal advice, but just to hear stories shared by anyone who has been driven to write a song, participate in government/policy making, reflect on their society and get involved, stand up for justice, etc., with the hope of making a difference. Hopefully from a personal "folk" perspective. I hope that's not too general or too selfish or too offensive.

There are lots of things great and sensible about our societies. Perhaps I should concentrate on my own shortcomings (a life-long journey) and ignore the things that appear shocking to me. But I bet some people on a folk site have for some reason been motivated to make a difference, and I would love to hear their stories.

I'll start a different thread about specific issues that I'm involved in or concerned with (if I'm brave!), and seek such specific personal advice there, but I hope this thread could contain some stories about Mudcatters and their experiences.

Thanks, MA
