Have Fun And Do Whatever Works

If you’re not sure how to get started as a nuclear weapons activist, the following principle is hopefully helpful.

Anything we can do to shift some focus to the subject of nuclear weapons is a constructive contribution to the cause.

Anything. Our activist action can be anything. It doesn’t have to be something big. It doesn’t have to be what somebody else is doing. Our activist action doesn’t have to involve money or politics. And our action doesn’t have to include anything we don’t feel like doing.

If you’re stuck on how to get going as a nuclear weapons activist, just do whatever works for you. Anything you can do to get folks thinking about nuclear weapons, however briefly, is good.

What are you already doing? What do you like to do? If it seems like your interests have nothing to do with nuclear weapons, that’s ok, just be a little creative.

Bowling To Save The World

As example, if bowling is your passion, you could wear a No Nukes T-shirt every time you go to the bowling alley.

You don’t have to stand on a chair and make a speech, get in to a debate, wave a sign, scrunch up your face in an angry activist scowl, run for office, or any of that, unless you are so inclined.

You can just wear the T-shirt while bowling, have fun, and enjoy your life. Sure, wearing a shirt is a small thing. But it’s a good contribution to the cause, and way more than most folks are doing.

1) Start where ever you already are.

2) Do whatever you’re inspired to do.

3) Just do something about nuclear weapons, anything.

4) And you’re a nuclear weapons activist.

None of us, even the President of the United States, will personally be the decisive factor in ending the nuclear weapons era. So let’s not worry ourselves about that.

Let’s just focus on what we can do. And what each of us can do is make the little leap from doing nothing, to doing something.

Once we get started, there’s no telling where it might lead.

Hey, you might win the National Bowling Championship and then get interviewed on national TV wearing your No Nukes t-shirt. Millions of bowlers might see you on TV and decide to follow your lead because you are so cool. You might start a fad, a trend, a viral explosion!!!

Ok, so I’m kinda kidding, but seriously, a high school girl has become a global leader on the subject of climate change, so truly, literally anything can happen.

Anything we can do to shift some focus to the subject of nuclear weapons is a constructive contribution to the cause.
