Have your say, every single day.

It’s easy to feel helpless when it comes to having your say in today’s society.  I remember how hopeless it all felt when the last elections were being held – I knew that no matter which way I voted, due to our unfair voting system, the Conservatives would win in my local area, let alone across the country.  The only light of hope in those dismal days were the fact that Brighton managed to elect a Green MP.

I have since come to realise that things aren’t as hopeless, and we are not as helpless as we may think.  Think about it – what is the biggest motivator in secular society? Money. Following on from that idea, how we spend our money is our biggest say in society.  With every pound or dollar that we spend, we are casting a vote in one direction or the other.

Consider this next time you are buying something – any food item bought that is not organic is a vote for using pesticides and other nasty chemicals.  Any toiletry item that is not organic and cruelty-free is a vote in favour of animal testing.  Every pack of cigarettes says that we don’t care about our health, other people’s or our effect on the national health care system.  Every non-organic and non-biodregradable diaper thrown away into a landfill is shouting – WE DON’T CARE ABOUT OUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE!

I have a vote, I have a voice, I have a say. With every penny spent, I am telling the world my views.  Money talks.
