Re: Yes...

" I'm in the position of yelling 'Fire!' when most everyone else seems intent on ignoring the smoke."

Or in my case, that I'm taking the fire way too personally and need to have a more resilient spirit. Funny, I don't think resilience ever worked as a fire extinguisher.

I had a year of being unable to deal with the population of my country not giving a sh*t about the way they were being treated about mental health. Then, at some stage, I burnt out myself. Perhaps that's no bad thing. Artists change society through art - campaigning by itself isn't enough until you have artistic power behind your words.

Sometimes I sign petitions or do other activism. Sometimes I write stories that are generally positive, even if they have gritty parts.

Then there are times when I lose my temper and release things that can really hurt people if read by legitimate targets.
