How Do We Respond to the Situation in Japan?

March 30, 2011 1 comment

I was reading some posts at the end of an article that included some emails exchanged between some workers at the damaged power plants in Japan, and when I read this comment posted in response to the article, I realized something very unfortunate:

.

 


“No country, America included, has the right to swoop in and take over when there is a disaster and the Japanese want to protect their security and their sense that they are in charge of and looking after their own country (as would any country that was suffering what it is suffering).” See full article here.

.

It’s unfortunate that our relationships (as nations) aren’t such that we Could just swoop in and help each other out. For example, if you saw someone fall off their bike, would you ‘swoop in’ to help them? I mean, to a large extent we are not like that on an individual level, and this is reflected on the large scale, where, as nations, it’s each nation ‘out for itself’.

.

I see a world where we can all work together and support each other is possible- though we are yet a long way off from being at that point, where we have actually established trust with each other, and can actually, for once, move as a group, in unity- I see that it is possible- and I see this because I have been transforming myself in my own relationships with others, to consider myself as equal to others, and consider what’s best for everyone equally- and if it’s possible on the individual level to develop real relationships and establish and build trust, then obviously it is possible on the large scale- it’s just a matter of each one of us standing up and taking self responsibility for how we live in this world and in our relationships with each other.

.

It’s not hard to see what kind of a world we could live in, what kind of life we could have, if we all consider what’s best for all, and stop living in fear and competition with each other. It’d be a World that’s a Trillion times better than what it is now. Where we could immediately take care of disasters and do whatever needs to be done to assist each other and make sure none are suffering. What happened in the aftermath of Katrina, for example- such atrocity would simply not happen.

.

.

How much more suffering do we need to go through, before we will finally realize the common sense to stand up and change ourselves, and change this world.

.

If you see the common sense and are ready to live in a world as equals that do not need to compete and struggle and fight to survive- support the Equal Money System.

Anti-Abortionists Don’t Actually Care About Life

March 3, 2011 Leave a comment

Wow, I just read an article about a religious group that wants to use a fetus to ‘testify’ in court, meaning actually to share the heartbeat of a fetus in court, in support of a bill that would make abortion illegal if there is a detectable heartbeat which can be as early in a pregnancy as 18 days. The so-called “Heartbeat bill” is not likely to be passed.

I have seen protesters in my local area, standing outside the local Bryn Mawr hospital, usually just two or three people, standing there holding signs, not realizing the futility of their protests to actually have any sort of effect on what they are protesting against. Protesting abortion is no way to stop abortions. Yet another example of how we want to change something by ‘Force’ which will not produce Lasting or Effective change. Because to have Real Actual Change, the actual cause of the problem must be considered and you must stop that cause to stop the problem, because obviously, if you don’t stop the cause, it’s going to keep happening, and if you’re trying to use force to stop it, you will need to continuously, infinitely apply that force. Thus, force is not an actual, sustainable Solution.

Therefore it’s absolutely a waste of time to stand around with some signs as obviously, that does ‘fuck-all’ to address the Cause of why people are choosing to have abortions. Thus those who stand there all day holding signs and spreading some ‘message’ of ‘stop abortions’, are actually not doing anything that’s going to actually stop abortions from happening.

And these Religious fanatics that’s opposing abortion because apparently they ‘care’ about life – if they actually care about life they will be working toward ending suffering of those that’s already alive and suffering, and working toward creating a world that is worth children to be born into, bringing forth a system in which life will be supported and thus no one will choose abortion because they cant afford a child or know the child has no chance for a dignified life. That is the Real solution, thus those that want to stop abortion – if that is what you really want, then you will support an Equal Money System.
