Changes for the Future
Written by Aaron Peterson
The first duty of an individual proclaiming to act in the interests of the people, is one so as not to alienate themselves as an individual proclaiming their allegiance to the masses from the people. The popular demands and dictates of the time must be adhered to, as opposed to the wishes of the individual’s sway of opinion, no matter how progressive it may be in order to avoid such alienation. In order to serve the people, the individual needs to be one with the people. This means following all trends of the people and making notes of them when necessary. Listening to the words of the people and what they say as opposed to making direct demands of the people. Observation comes before all action, listening is key to building an analysis of the on-going situation in which the people live and endure. Analysis exists in the interests of forming acts of agitation for the direct needs of the people. Agitation must be formed after reasonable analysis and present information gathering in order to educate the people.
The people’s needs come first. This is to mean their desires are at the forefront of the day, so as to say. In order to create popularity in order to serve the people in their entirety this is a necessity. The first deadly sin that an individual can make is attempting to be above the people in an elitist nature. When an individual classes a person as ‘backwards’, they enter into the faults of elitist attitude. The thoughts, wishes and needs of the people must be engaged in order to build a line of direct communication between the individual and the people in order to strive for change. Acting in a forceful sense in the proclamation of ‘serving the people’ by ‘forcing’ the people is doomed to result in abject failure as the education necessary hasn’t been created yet.
Changes of a social, societal or economic level in the interests of the people cannot be forced. No matter their requirement and the need of them to be implemented. If the people, even a section of the people, are not educated in the interest of implementing the changes, as a result of not engaging in this education, it will make the changes doomed to failure and disaster. The people must be willing in order to make a change and they have to know why they want to make a change. First in order to make this change, the people must be spoken to in order to engage them. Only when they have been fully engaged can they spark the roots of change.
Dialogue should be recognized as one of the most important tools. Only with dialogue can the urge to create change, building an engaging theoretical base; so that a revolutionary idea may be sewn within the minds of the people. Only through creating the want of change can such a possibility be enabled.
Education is the seed for all change. Show the reality in the abject sense for what it is. When people are aware of the reality in a broader sense than they are typically confronted with, it acts as a tool to stop the blinding of the people. This technique is used through that of mass media in order to give the people misinformation and to dull their senses to their surroundings.
Without education, in order to breed the sense of positive change, what will be allowed to occur is the isolation of the person or people embarking on the path of change, either as elitist or in the sense of organization, an elitist clique that doesn’t represent the people. In contrast, what is to be created is a vessel that speaks for the people, by the people and for the people in accordance to their wishes and demands.
Work in which the people have not realized the purpose of is doomed for disaster. When the people are not educated as to why they must work for a better future, they are prone to resisting even when the idea is beneficial to their needs. If this line is to be taken, it will work in the opposite direction of what is wanted to be achieved, by the way of increasing chances for failure.
Actual needs come first for the people. They go above all other needs; the need of pragmatism is required to face the situations that are present at the time. At the same time, when the actual needs are being met with proposals and ultimately implementations of ideas. What should not be feared though is creating an educational line to serve more ultimate and further goals of transforming society.
Through the educational line that is created, the people can see more clearly. The future appears broader in this respect. In order to be successful, education comes before agitation. Working in the interests of the people will better serve the people than direct agitation which pushes them directly into a situation, unnerved and without a proper resolve. A forceful nature, as opposed to a more patient approach will offer only rejection. In this case the course of teaching must be kept on-going and never ending, in order to offer alternatives to the current situation of what the people face.
