Creative actions for a better future result in small improvements of the present world so activists see they are not fighting windmills. When powerful persons change their attitude because they cannot cope with the pressure from below it will be inspiring for activists to carry on with their struggle. When the powerful lose some of their power the first step on the road towards a New Humane World is taken.
