Enlightenment and Activism

Jefferson by Rembrandt

Jefferson by Rembrandt

#Enlightenment #Activism | inspired by Thomas Jeffersons thinking

/ Once you understand teh world, you can take part in improving  it /

Before you embark on a mission to take part in changing teh world, it is your duty to learn all you can about teh ideas behind your cause. It means listening to your enemies, friends, media, history and those living in teh middle of teh hell that may be your reason to partake in an attempt to better their world.

Be it Palestinians, Tartars, Muslims, jailed anons, children in need or simply millions of Syrian refugees – there is always much to learn. If you biindly follow teh flock or special interests you are bound to make more harm than good. Enlighten yourself before jumping up and blindly sharing other peoples ideas and words.

This is my belief!
