Within the industrial based societal hierarchy there is a perceived official tolerance for polluting and destructive activities due to its economic relevance. Supportive politics to these industries due to corruption, misleading information or dependence on the taxable labour offered by these enterprises, become complice to the damages caused on local and global humankind and our planet. Have a look at this video of the crimes of cement industries that use subsidised waste to fuel their processes.
Such industries, often within the domain of large western multinationals, have the coward, historical tendency to do these practices in areas where the politic environment is still favorable for their crimes. They are called crimes because the negative health and environmental impacts are known to the executives. This is why they diverted to these places, away from their home country where rules are much stricter. The aspect of willingly and knowingly polluting and poisening a local population somewhere in the world is a crime against humanity.
Such industries tend to justify their action because of the global “need” for their products, the wish to recover their investments or the profit pressure demanded by their stakeholders against all moral validation, often with a long term collatoral of the local government. This means that the local network is as responsible for the crime against their own population as the multinational itself.
Locals that defend their basic right for health (without unnatural, human inflicted pollution) get prosecuted for trespassing, blocking economic processes or other “system crimes” that have no natural basis. This shows the old irrational focus of justice on defending a manipulated interpretation of justice out of economic bias. This is wrong in basic, unwritten natural laws of public health and safety. Favoring the sustaining of a corrupt “money determines all” type of phylosophy makes even those parts of justice complice of the crime.
When there is a choice there is no excuse. With the growth of core natural values driven alternative community (society) governance (SDG’s based, donut economy, Sustainocracy, etc) to the money driven hegamony the zero tolerance of crime against nature and humanity is growing equaly. Politicians, business executives and justice have now a choice. This is still voluntary in view of the relative novelty of the definition of the core values and alternative governance model. Soon it will become compulsary by law of nature. Within the voluntary arena of choice they will have to face increasing the public disapproval and uprise. It is not the institutions that choose, it is the people that run and support them.
The newly demanded zero tolerance justice is hence not concentrated anymore on blaming the enterprises with their battery of system lawyers. It is going to prosecute the executives, politicians, civil servants and even judges themselves who get blamed for their choices. Self protective immunity could be a mask within the dominance of a single system but with the breakthrough of alternatives the immunity is not effective anymore. There is no hiding possible. The only way forward is through protecting, defending and supporting sustainable human progress and our core natural values. If not, one is facing to be banned from the community as even jail, at the expense of the community, is too much for such criminals.
On May 8th, 2020, Dr. Ana Berti Suman defended her thesys on “Citizen’s Sensing” online and responded to peer reviewers questions. The day before she organised an online seminar with participation from the entire world. As one of the cases (AiREAS) of her Phd study I was asked to a short background presentation. My argument of citizen’s sensing was context driven, namely from the humanitarian view of one that defends core human values such as health and healthy air. How do existing laws help AiREAS, or stand our processes in the way? Or should there be new regulatory rules to govern citizen’s taking initiative to monitor their own environment using technological aids and confronting government with their insights and results.
A cartoonist made a drawing of my arguments. The blog about the seminar and all the speakers can be read on the Tilburg University’s School of Law site.
Understand: Corona made us modify our lifestyle quickly to avoid premature death. Now we need to show we learned our lesson and modify our lifestyle definitely to avoid repetition of such premature death threats, not just due to a virus but also due to hunger, pollution, criminality, etc. Health and determination is the vehicle, not fear and lockdowns.
Need: It is in our common interest to address sustainability proactively from a core human values (biological natural wellness) point of view directly, instead of relying on costly repairs when we realize we damage ourselves and our environment. Then it is too late.
Involve: Our modified lifestyle based on core life values such as health and safety is a responsibility of everyone, citizens and institutions together, not just government or healthcare institutions.
Targeted: In order to do so we need to place our core values leading on our overall agenda, not our financial goals or dependence. We need to address health in every aspect of our lives directly and with the help of our institutions:
- Health air
- Healthy food
- Healthy energy
- Healthy water
And safety as well:
- Safe and respectful relationship between people and with nature
- Safe entrepreneurship – 4 x Value
- Safe environment
- Safe governance – level 4 facilitating
- Safe learning – through participation
Entrepreneurial: We create level 4 awareness driven priority tables in which all fragmented functions of our society are present and take responsibility together through the definition of project with expected and measurable results:
- Local citizens – our behavior, awareness and culture
- Local government – public money and underlying infrastructures
- Local entrepreneurship – innovative products and services
- Local science and education – participatory learning
The tables are being chaired by an independent local sustainocrat (person or NGO). It is called level 4 awareness driven co-creation. Money is a means, just like knowledge, creativity, engagement and dedication.
Local government liberates 5% of its annual budget into an open fund for level 4 co-creation of local core human values. The remaining 95% is for “governance as usual” by taking level 4 processes as leading for level 1, 2 and 3 supportive modifications.
Devoted: The participation in this UNITED modified lifestyle continuity for sustainable fearless wellness is done with people who are devoted with passion and powerful belief in our co-creative strength as a community.
