But in the end, everything will hinge on the private decisions of individuals; perhaps even of one single individual – this is how the world works (although we never know the sepficis, in mortal life).
The threads of causality converge on a point of decision, then diverge-out from that point.
At that point it might be You – You will, soon, be brought to some point, and will make a difficult choice. You cannot ever know that your choice is not the one at the convergence point of a vast portion of the web, your choice the origin of many other changes.
And anyway, nothing is insignificant in this world – everything matters, because anything might be crucial.
(There are no ‘unimportant people’.)
How you decide, how you perform on that single test of integrity, could determine the future of the nations.
-thus Bruce Charlton
