That's a bit of a depressing thing to say - if we don't bother debating it (including in parliament etc.) then there will be no change. If I go sit under my rock and just let things happen to me without standing up for what I believe in then of course nothing is going to change to how I want it. Change happens because people stand up for what they believe in. Politicians (usually) stand up for what their constituents believe in - at least, what the loudest/richest people who got them voted in believe in.
Just because you may believe that nothing will change doesn't mean that others believe the same. Others here who continue to debate do, IMO, actually believe that a difference can be made.
NT is a clear example that change can happen. Even the Lord Mayor of Brisbane(?) in the most recent Channel 7 news report regarding the QLD inquiry mentioned that he wasn't against removing the helmet requirement for off-road bike path riding. That is change.
As the saying goes - "the squeaky wheel gets the oil."
So I say to all those posting here - continue to squeak. It is certainly what a lot of other advocacy groups are doing (automobile clubs, anyone?).
