In Dutch news: Over 275 elementary schools are situated in close range of the freeway – which is considered very unhealthy for the kids because of exhaust gas, especially for asthmatic reasons. This concerns over 60.000 children.
Dutch politicians now consider elementary schools will no longer be built in such close range to freeways. WTF!? So this is considered unhealthy for these 60.000 kids but they will have to go to school anyway in the same conditions even though it is established being harmful to their health? We just in future will situate any new school to build 10 meters farther away? Is this the solution we come up with?!
So these 60 000 children are NOT considered. So all adolescent children that are in high schools situated in close range of free ways are NOT considered. So all adults (and their children) that live in houses situated in close range of the freeway are NOT considered. Even though we are familiar with the destructive effect on our health caused by the extensive use of cars – we merely decide to only act in future: to situate new schools a few meters farther away…
How foolish and ignorant – let’s bury our head in the sand. We will NOT consider the cause of the harm that is done to the health of our children – and ours. We will NOT stop and think WHO causes this. We will NOT even consider to stop driving our petrol driven cars. We will NOT regard the devastating effect our ‘high standard of living’ has on our health – now I am not even speaking of the devastating effect our high standard of living has on the health of the people in the rest of the world. We WILL NOT stop driving our cars! Our car is considered more holy than god himself… It is our RIGHT to drive a car – a right we will not give up, no matter what.
Once the Equal Money System is established we will not just go on driving cars and planes and all other vehicles driven by gas or other polluting substance – we will invest in vehicles that are environmentally safe, on a large scale. The technology is already available - has been available already for many years, but the interest (MONEY) of the large companies (multi nationals like Shell for instance) is at stake when it comes down to environmental safety – money first, THEIR money first; which means we are told we NEED their product (gas). Well, this is not true – we CAN drive cars that are not polluting the air. And we all know this! It is public knowledge – we are all being informed by television, newspapers, magazines, internet. Why aren’t we moving ourselves?! Why do we not state, as a group, we will not drive a car any longer that is endangering the health of our children – we are done with it. Till here and no further!
I see no riots, no demonstrations, not one Dutch parent stand up and speak: till here and no further – I will no longer allow our ego-driven cars to endanger the health of our children! Not one!
Is it because we place our first interest in MONEY ourselves? Are we like Shell, in our small private world – I have first of all my own self interest at heart – even if that means I’ll put my child’s health in danger. Or someone else’s child. Or you go: what can I do? My neighbour will still go on driving his oil driven car… And your neighbour thinking the same thought: so nobody moves. Or: the government should take care of this, I’m not to be bothered – I just live by the rules.
All childish arguments. We are not children anymore. We do have power. We do have self willed power to change the world – you have a Vote. Start on a small scale, in your own private world. Stand up for a healthy environment, stand up for an Equal Money System. Every small ripple makes a wave. Inspire yourself to act for a healthy breath of air. Inspire your neighbour to do the same. And your neighbour inspiring other neighbours…. The small scale will grow into a larger scale. The larger scale will grow into large scale, into world wide scale. So there is no excuse at all for not moving!
