man.erg "For years I protested as an individual, as a member of different organizations, and even worked for a nonprofit that organized protests and tried to change things with public pressure. I never once found myself really sure that my efforts had made a difference. In fact, it all seemed generally pointless and I began to realize that those people who were high up in the protesting organizations were more motivated by prestige and notoriety than they were by doing good.

Then I went to work for government. If I had spent my lifetime working with nonprofits and protest groups I don't think I could have made the difference that I do in a year with working for government. On the micro scale, my individual decisions make a real difference to the public I serve. On the macro scale, I can see what changes need to be made and talk to the right people to make it happen.

I realize that my experience can't be repeated in every country, but I do think that it is relevant to most countries. Government is made up of people. People who often have the same interests as the people who protest. When you know what needs to change you can either stand outside and criticize or walk through the door and take action."
