A short little note on complacency.
Do not expect changes to occur on their own. Do not expect politicians to tell the truth. Do not believe for a second that you will ever change a person (you cannot, and if you effect any change it is fleeting and temporary). Do not ever think that you know the whole truth about anything in life (everybody lies to an extent and the truth is subjective).
Be alert to subtle shifts in power. Be aware of your surroundings. Be always vigilant to deceit that is always present.
Just be careful, be alert, be awake, and be alive.
