The antidote to apathy

‎How often do we hear that people just don’t care? How often have you been told that real, substantial change isn’t possible because most people are too selfish, too stupid or too lazy to try and make a difference in their community? I propose to you today that apathy as we think we know it doesn’t actually exist, but rather, that people do care, but we live in a world that actively discourages engagement by constantly putting obstacles and barriers in our way. - Dave Meslin on TED.
