Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Moore are Right: Now's the Time to Work

For many people, right now is mourning time in America, because Donald Trump is set to become President come January next year, and nothing can change this.

But for some smarter heads, now's the time to get to work. Several celebrities, including most prominently Jennifer Lawrence and Michael Moore, have effectively said that now's the time to stand up for your values and make them work. And I couldn't agree more.

You know, as great a President Obama has been, relying on the government to stand against racism, bigotry and homophobia is not the way to go. It is neither a responsible or reliable way to improve society. A silver lining of Trump's election may just be that people will take responsibility for the world around them. People will have no choice but to stand up for their own values and be their champion. People will have no choice but to get politically involved, to campaign against unwanted policies.

And for that, America (and indeed the rest of the world) may emerge a better place in four years' time.
