The world can only be grasped by action, not by contemplation.
I'm incandescent about the latest plans to build housing on agricultural land at the end of the road. We live on the edge of a medieval market town that has lost a lot of its greenbelt to housing (some of it on a flood plain!) since we moved here in 1980.
Contemplation and debate is fine but now is the time to stand up and oppose the money-grabbing housing developer who brown-bagged his way to planning permission.
