So it looks like I've completed my action and it was probably more personally than socially beneficial. But as long as that inspires others to have confidence in taking action it's fine by me.
My action was initially about the problems in the magazine industry. They try to encourage young people, particularly girls, to be themselves whilst forcing them to subscribe to a certain means of defining themselves - commercialism. Products are now used to indicate the parameters for individuality. For example, you can pick whatever colour you want, but what you buy must be a pair of skinny tube jeans of labels either x, y, or z because your category is this shape. It's destructive conditioning which negatively impacts on the development of individuals during adolescence.
So what did I do about it? My teeny weeny action was to use the media industry itself, ie. print journalism, to raise my concerns. I submitted a piece for the heckler and also for Honi Soit at Sydney University. Though it was enjoyable, I'm not satisfied quite yet, because they haven't been published.
Hence, I decided to rethink my action. I gave myself a mandate that I am going to continue to write articles and opinion pieces to newspapers. I'm sure my commentary is worthwhile, even if its just because I'm taking an action that I otherwise would not have taken. It's better to get off you're arse and damn well try than let it become numb with ambivalence.
