Making a contribution

Congratulations Ian on starting this blog.

I came across a couple of quotations at the National Museum's exhibition "From Little Things Big Things Grow: Fighting for Indigenous Rights."

Shirley Andrews 1996: "One of the viruses of democracy is that people develop this habit of moving motions and having long discussions about things and then I think they feel they've done it."

Does democracy get in the way at times, of making a difference?

Charles Perkins 1990: "Everyone I think is only on this earth to make a particular contribution and you've got to make the best you can and then you've got to move on."

Do we hang around too long? How do we know when it's time to move on and let someone else do the difference making?
