In the past two weeks I’ve had a lot of time to think about important and unimportant things (long story). I have come to some very basic conclusions as is my right and obligation. They may seem obvious to some.
To others they may seem inflammatory. Deal with it — say what you want on your own page.
I believe that as humans we deserve: UNIVERSAL EQUALITY IN ALL ASPECTS OF LIFE, UNIVERSAL ACCESS: TO FOOD, WATER, SHELTER, MEDICAL TREATMENT AND AVAILABILITY OF MEDICATION, UNIVERSAL ACCESS TO EDUCATION, UNIVERSAL FREEDOM OF CHOICE OVER OUR OWN BODIES, UNIVERSAL FREEDOM OF MOVEMENT, FREEDOM OF SPEECH, DEMOCRACY.
These are big issues that have repercussions in news events around the world. I haven’t worked out all the details, yet, but I have seen a lot of headlines on television in print media and on the internet.
On our planet we must eradicate (as much is humanly possible, as opposed to what is economically viable) HUNGER DISEASE VIOLENCE HOMELESSNESS BIGOTRY WAR (and others too numerous to mention).
My neighbors: MUST NOT starve while I eat, MUST NOT die of illness while I have access to a cure, MUST NOT BE CONFINED BY NATIONAL BORDERS if their lives, health, or opportunities are at risk, MUST HAVE universal access to the best education in order to best express their natural abilities, MUST HAVE equal access to meaningful, rewarding and satisfying employment, MUST HAVE the freedom to make their own life choices; these choices MUST NOT be dictated by GOVERNMENT RELIGION, SOCIETY or self-proclaimed MAJORITIES. LYNCH MOB DEMOCRACY MUST BE ELIMINATED.
In short, I AM my brother’s/sister’s keeper. I WILL treat them as I would prefer to be treated. I WILL NOT be the cause of abuse, whether physical, verbal, mental or emotional. I WILL live my life according to the best of my potential.
