This, said by Daniel Burrus, made sense to me:
On both sides of the Atlantic, there is a growing trend where people are disillusioned with politics. We have grown weary of both parties refusing to listen, much less compromise, in order to move the nation forward, and we are tired of being lied to constantly by those that refuse to give a straight answer to any of our concerns.
You may not be able to change who is in power at any given time, but you can skip the problem and look to how you can be a part of shaping and building a better future for you and your country. The exponential growth of technology has provided a wealth of previously unavailable tools that allow you to make your voice heard and to make a difference.
The truth is that all you need is a desire to challenge the status quo and to begin with a single step forward.
If you don’t like the future, you can change it. The only enemy is apathy, so don’t simply hope the future will be better — actively shape a better future for yourself and others.
