A Dark Future Predicted by Oracles, Scientists, and Politicians?

In reality, dark or bright, everything is in our hands. It doesn’t take much to tip the balance between choosing either, influencing the future.

Humankind has endured many kinds of wars until now. Face to face with swords and shields, bullets, gunners, tanks, planes, and atom bombs. And now war and political experts are talking about a new way: CYBER WAR!

We have already faced cyber war(1). Some developed countries choose this way to keep an eye on their adversaries and make them weaker, a prelude to further offensive operations. Due to this approach, one faction can corrupt communication from within the other faction, and also weaken morale. Other steps can be done easily, like cutting telephone lines at war in the past, but this is a new way.

Another new way to attack is “HAARP(2),” affecting the ionosphere and creating earthquakes using high frequencies. Not only earthquakes but ocean waves can be influenced, polar ice caps can be melted, and the ozone layer can be degraded to name just a few apocalyptic harbingers of doom – get ready for the world ever more altered by humankind.

In the past, prophets believed that our future was in the hands of God. But, for fear of sounding paranoid, I guess we can assume that not only God is managing our world but “big brother,” and his eyes are on us all the time!

What Exactly is Sustainable Development?

The video below, presented by the United Nations, describes perfectly why sustainable development is important and what it stands for. It emphasises the importance of time— every single day is important if we want to effect change.

So, what did you do today? Do you still have time to contribute to the world?

Love Conquers All

Can love stop a war if this love is between two different nations and these nations hate each other? We know of the Trojan War (1) when a love created a war, but this is another topic for us now.

Hate, prejudice, vendettas, and racism seemingly do not allow anyone to love someone from the “other” side. In respect to all these negative issues, can we overcome such animosity when someone craves for more blood?

This time, I will not write any more to let you watch this paradigm-shifting video about what if a Jewish man loves a Muslim girl and a Muslim man loves a Jewish girl. (2)

Story of Your Life

Last January, I was part of a project called “Initiative,” where I had the opportunity to work with various people from the NGO sector. The goal of the project was to challenge the very same institutions to act according to their country’s laws and adopted policies. They showcased examples of how they managed to, with a straightforward logical deduction, find loopholes in the behaviour of these institutions with their own laws. These insights transpired among a group of fewer than 15 people. So many regulations were modified that the workshop convinced me that governments had a lot of room to improve in this field.

Back in 2015, the United Nations released a short film series called: “The Story You are Shaping.” In the embedded video below (1), the powers that institutions have over our futures and everyday lives are demonstrated.

It comes as no surprise that robust, inclusive, and transparent institutions are the bedrock of peaceful societies. Our rights are created and upheld by them. Are you helping to keep them so? Tell us about your part in shaping the human values which write history.

Nagasaki Never Again!

At exactly this time, 72 years ago, Nagasaki was hit with an atomic bomb. Living in Japan, every year I am reminded of this catastrophe as a siren sounds for a minute throughout the country for a moment of silence, as well as for Hiroshima and the end of World War Two for Japan.

A lot of time has passed since the end of “the war to end all wars,” surprisingly said of World War One. Tragically, sirens are now heard in Japanese school yards for missile evacuation drills (1). Will the bold statement above ever be realised?

I have been to Nagasaki several times, the most memorable of which was with a peace-loving group from the United States of America (2). As I experienced visiting Nagasaki with my homestay family 25 years ago, I wanted them to do the same. Now, every year they head to Nagasaki with their homestay families. Sincere gestures like this one, give me hope that we can overcome any obstacle to achieve mutual understanding between cultures, ultimately delivering eternal peace on earth.

Hiroshima Never Again!

Hiroshima is dear to my heart as I represented AIESEC there many years ago as part of the New Zealand delegation to a Global Youth Village sponsored by the Japanese government.

To memorialise the bombing of Hiroshima, 72 years ago to the day, I would like to encourage you to get involved in an initiative that I am passionate about. A year ago to the day, I made my mind up to establish a connection with the Green Legacy Hiroshima (GLH) initiative. It aims to distribute seeds of trees which survived the atomic bombing there worldwide as symbols of hope and resilience.

I was determined to introduce GLH to my home country of New Zealand as it has had a resolute nuclear-free zone status since 1984 (1). So I worked with my relative Douglas Field who had connections with Rotary Club and Dunedin Botanic Gardens. His efforts paved the way for discussions I had with Green Legacy Hiroshima representatives in Hiroshima and at the New Zealand Embassy in Tokyo before heading to Dunedin to present the initiative there.

I am moved to announce that, as of today, at precisely this moment, New Zealand, in the city of Dunedin, has officially joined the growing number of countries that are determined to bring about a nuclear free world (2). To quote the words of the Mayor of Dunedin, “Green Legacy Hiroshima is really a show of hope, willing for the whole world to take note and stand, united, against such atrocities for the betterment and peace of our planet now and for future generations.”

More information about Green Legacy Hiroshima is available online at www.unitar.org/greenlegacyhiroshima/

Problem-Reaction-Solution; All from the Same Hands!

Before we jump to any conclusions, let’s see what’s going on behind closed doors. Two books taught me the importance of this. One is “Human Race Get Off Your Knees,” by David Icke. The second is a well-known classic: “1984,” by George Orwell. Generally, we like to talk about world issues, but it’s not like we think about what causes the problem.

I think it’s time I explain the “Problem-Reaction-Solution” title.
Step 1 – Problem: Create a problem (illness, terror, cyber attack, etc.)
Step 2 – Reaction: Create a reaction (validate and spread the “problem” via media or the Internet.)
Step 3 – Solution: Create a solution (sell the solution to people who suffer from the problem you created.)

It may sound like a conspiracy to you, but here are two examples that illustrate what I mean.
Example 1: There are cameras everywhere (streets, malls, stadiums, etc.) to protect people and observe for potential offenders. Makes sense right? People think that having a camera everywhere is beneficial to them, but why are so many locations monitored by cameras like in the book 1984?
Example 2: Swine Flu (H1N1 virus) began in Mexico in 2009 just after a big pharmaceutical company patented the H1N1 vaccine in 2008(2). The virus led to fear among people, and they were vaccinated. Insane amounts of pigs were killed for protection, but then we found out that, actually, even pigs were safe(3). So, maybe it’s that the virus was created in labs by humans.
What do you think? Problem-reaction-solution (or we can say “money”). The motto for this article might be “Mankind is Killing Each Other.”
