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.

Help Japan- Don’t Donate to Capitalism- Support an Equal Money System

March 16, 2011 Leave a comment

You know, it’s in the face of violent natural disasters, that we get a unique opportunity to really see who we are- To see just who we are in the wake of such a disaster, how do we react, how do we respond, when nature strikes a devastating blow? Perhaps we should ‘make the most’ of a tragedy, and see what we can learn about ourselves in our reaction to the situation that’s going on in Japan.

People living near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant have been evacuated from their homes due to the risk of radiation leaks. However, despite the risk of radiation contamination, some 180 plant workers have remained behind, to continue to try to keep the plant from having a meltdown.

They are being referred to as heroes, as the radiation levels they are likely being exposed to are extreme. And while these workers are possibly sacrificing their lives, all we are doing is saying ‘how brave’. This is the extent to which we simply don’t give a fuck. That this kind of situation was even possible to happen in the first place.

This situation never needed to happen in the first place, and the least we can do is ensure that this never happens to anyone else again. When we have an Equal Money System in place, we will be able to fully explore alternatives, but perhaps even more dramatic than that, we’ll be able to cut down significantly on how much energy we require, thus we won’t be tempted to put in nuclear plants because we’re trying to get the most we can just to try and keep up with the demand of the Capitalist system, which sucks the life out of the planet and everyone and everything on it with total disregard for Life whatsoever. And in an Equal Money System, we will have to make jobs as safe as we possibly can, otherwise no one will do them, because we won’t be forced to do jobs that are hazardous to our health just to make a living and maybe be able to survive and breathe another day in this world.

In an Equal Money System, we’ll be able to prevent these kind of tragedies, and we won’t be simply watching this happen to people on a TV screen, and just calling them heroes…

Those who try to buy away their Responsibility and Guilt by donating money supposedly to Japan, within this current monetary system, no that you are doing nothing to help, and in fact are only adding to to the problem, by supporting the current system in which things like this happen. It’s Time for a New System which Considers Life, you want to Help Japan-  Support Equal Money.
