Thinking by yourself

This is the last Page from Harald Welzer's book titled "Selbst Denken - Eine Anleitung zum Widerstand". It translates to "Thinking by Yourself - A Guide to Resistance", its Author is a soziologist and I haven't seen this in English yet. I won't review it but I though the last 12 Points might be interesting and universal even if you haven't read the book (which kind of reminded me of the Zeitgeist documentary I postet some years(!) ago)

12 Rules To A Successful Resistance

1. Everything could be different.
2. It is only up to you, wether something will change or not.
3. Because of that - take yourself seriously.
4. Stop agreeing with everything.
5. Resist if you don't agree.
6. You have a lot of room for action.
7. Expand the limits of this room where you are and where you have influence.
8. Cooperate.
9. Expect that you will be thrown back - especially to throwback yourself.
10. You don't have to take responsibility for the whole world.
11. The way your resistance looks, depends on what options you have.
12. It also depends on the things you enjoy doing.
