Activism is a doctrine or practice that emphasizes direct, vigorous action typically in an effort to promote, impede, direct or intervene in social, political, economic or environmental reform. While the goal of any activist is to foment change towards a perceived "greater good," ones activism and subsequent demonstrable intent / actions are wholly dependent upon which side of an issue one resides. Polarities of view are a given and the extent to which one is willing to act varies widely and is dependent upon the level of threat one experiences and the degree of risk each person is willing to accept.
