7. Know The Butterfly Effect
The chaos theory, the quiver of an insect’s wing that can set off a hurricane in a country faraway. Everything you do has a ripple effect somewhere. So what you do or don’t do makes a difference. Understand that you’re part of a bigger picture. You’re not a speck, or a mere voiceless individual, but a gear in the machinery of the world. Recognizing this is the beginning of the fight for justice. It’s absence is in war torn societies that’s maddened by unethical politics.
6. Get Yourself Involved
Once you form your opinions and then equip and educate yourself as best as possible, then get out there and get involved at the grassroots level. Volunteer at a shelter for underprivileged kids. Do your bit in those areas that you feel the most passionate about. Whether it be poverty, racism, or animal rights. There are numerous organizations who could use your help, your voice and manpower.
5. Value Your Integrity
Being dishonest is one of the most primal forms of injustice. Like stealing, you’re depriving someone of what’s rightfully theirs. When you’re dishonest with others or yourself, you’re slanting the truth. Always be truthful to your ideals, to what’s right, everything that you love and hold dear to your heart, even if it’s difficult. A world of justice only comes to those who are courageous enough and will stand up for what they believe in, regardless of the stakes. Courage without integrity becomes shameless, ugly, and farcical. Stand up and fight hypocrisy. Walk your talk, lead by example. Call out those who claims their rights, yet denies the same rights to others. A bright future can’t be found in a bed of lies.
