Blog July 13, 2021 - The important things first

Created with Sketch.


Introduction: 

I write what I think and that's what I stand for. This is not a novel, it is my take on reality.  

Etymology, justification, linguistic - gender, legal - plagiarism, copyright, questions
can be found at the end of the text.

 

The important things first: 

What are the big problems in our world? The knowledge of the need to rectify this is very much there, but there is a huge lack of implementation.
We have the Paris Climate Agreement. But it is not adhered to. The climate crisis is advancing, CO2 emissions are not decreasing, the irreversible concentration in the atmosphere is steadily increasing. The raw materials, in this context fossil fuels, are mined until nothing is left. We see and feel the effects. Climate disasters are increasing, we have to get used to them now.
And our children? What about their future? And our farmers? The acreage? Our vegetables, our fruits? And what about all the wildlife ?!
 
Climate change, drought, food shortages, hunger, thirst, all of these have an impact on people. Where do we go if we can no longer live here, if there is no more water there or if floods make life no longer possible there? Forest fires of unprecedented size, severity and frequency. Or severe thunderstorms, hurricanes, tornadoes, hurricanes in the destructible size and on a scale that leaves only destruction, hardship and death. Or earthquakes, landslides, mudslides.
The poles are melting, the sea level is rising and the sea is warming, the corals and fish are dying. 


In addition to the environmental disasters, the extinction of species of animals, in addition to the overfishing of the oceans, in addition to the health problems worldwide, we continue as if all of this were normal and ok and are not really surprised. With what explanation?
 
Survival of the fittest?
After me the deluge?
Isn't everything so bad, you just have to see it positively?
Should others judge it? Maybe politics?
Or has it always been like that?
Or: I don't care, it's not my problem.
I am amazed at the sentences that some have come up with. But do you actually believe your explanations yourself?
 
The fact is, nature is not doing well and so we are not doing well!
I know you don't like to hear that. It is better to distract yourself from reality with this or that time waster. But how honest is that? Aren't we actually lying to ourselves? And our children?
 
The small fishermen no longer catch fish because the giant trawls of large industry fish the oceans empty.
The mother can no longer draw water from the well because the big corporations are pumping out all the groundwater to fill in bottles that are expensive to sell (plastic if possible!). What is the fisherman and mother doing now?
Exactly, they leave if they can so as not to starve and dying of thirst and to create a future for their children. Or what would you do ??
If it makes things more difficult that corruption, war or a form of government of dictatorship also prevails in your own home country, what do you HAVE to do? Exactly - go even faster!
 
And yet there are people who are surprised that there are people on the run.
Then I hear sentences like: They should stay where they come from. Or I can't help it that they feel like that, it's not my country, it's not my problem.
 
I disagree. It is our problem! It is a problem for all of us!
 
Famous musicians like John Lennon, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson and many more have written and sung songs about a better world, yes about world peace. We listen to these songs, sing along and also dream of a better world. After the song, the wish may echo a little, then it is forgotten again. Famous freedom fighters, visionaries, activists, fighters for civil, women's and human rights and such as Martin Luther King, Madiba, Mahatma Gandhi, Virginia Woolf, Simone de Beauvoir, Clara Zetkin, Rosa Parks, Rigoberta Menchú. 


All conventions, the human and children's rights of the Geneva Convention, the climate agreement, the disarmament agreement, all of them are of no use if the great and powerful do not adhere to them!
 
We are all meant. I think it is time that we - you and me - we little earth citizens, take this into our hands together.
 
This is a call to stand up together, to a togetherness to all well-meaning people, to all non-profit organizations, non-governmental organizations, be it in humanitarian, social, environmental or animal welfare. We all want the same thing: a better and fairer world. A sustainable world. A world for our children and grandchildren. A world for the flora and fauna. A togetherness of all peoples and ethnic groups. A fair distribution and sustainable use of resources. A large space for all remaining animals, free and really appropriate to their species. A good cooperation, a benevolence, a good neighborhood without envy and resentment. A good coexistence. A design for this planet. Probably my appeal will not be heeded, ignored, certainly smiled at and ignored. But who else does it? We want love and charity for everyone, everything and everyone. We want to get away from consumption, away from plastic, away from the exploitation of nature, away from egoism, away from greed, away from ever more. Towards warmth and justice, towards peace.
 
We have the UN, we have the Geneva Convention, we have the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. But what happens at the EU's external borders? All of these internationally recognized rights are disregarded, and even violently trampled, or even murdered. And everyone listens for a moment, if at all, and then everyone goes back to their everyday life. And so it is with everything and with everything. Not only when it comes to refugees, no, it is the same with child abductions in Africa, with child soldiers, with the plundering of raw materials, the extermination of entire animal species, with the destruction of primeval forests, simply everywhere you look. Organizations may fight it, but they are alone. Mostly without a chance. The market, power, money and violence rule, in other words egoism. 


I used to want to make the world a better place. I saw injustices here and there and I totally disagreed with them. I also had a bad feeling about being born in this country and many others were not so lucky with their place of birth in the heart of Europe.
In the course of time I was told from different sides that everything already has its reason and that you can only change something on a small scale - you cannot change the whole world, you just have to accept that. I tried to follow that, to accept it. I saw a lot and helped on a small scale.
But I noticed that it really helped on a small scale, but only very little in relation to world problems, the big, global problems of the world remained, and in some cases you also reach the limits on the small things - namely when the egoism of individuals is of higher order Position is approved. Which means the global problems strongly influence the small problems. So none of it brings anything, this would theoretically be the logical conclusion.
However, as you can see under the etymology, of the word thought, the feelings are the opposite. And these cannot always be kept under one roof. The anger over the injustices, over the exploitation, over the oppression, over the mistreatment. It is good that the feelings cannot simply be switched off. 


I don't agree with everyone looking the other way and just concentrating on their own little garden. With blinkers. I certainly understand that we are often under great pressure in this country, be it from work, finances, expectations, illness or family reasons. I know profound problems of the individual. Everyone has 1000 things to do every day. This has to be done, it has to be done by then and then, you have to think about it, this has to be planned or organized. There is always a lot. Very much. There is little time and energy left to reflect on yourself and your life. You work and come home to regenerate somewhat, just so that you can go back to work the next day. Most of the time, there is also the fact that the work is a job that you do to make money, to pay all the endless bills that keep fluttering into the house. Only a few were able to turn their hobby into a profession. We relax on the sofa in front of the TV, play games or go for a beer to switch off. But what do we actually switch off from? From functioning? Everything is regulated, regulated, everything has to be documented, everything has to be secured, everything has to be paid for. Everything - everything - everything - always - always - always - now - now - now. Better yesterday and not just today. We are constantly running and getting things done and yet we are running out of time.
But actually we have or would have everything. However, so many are dissatisfied, moaning and feeling sick. But actually we have everything, far too much of everything. Abundance, luxury. And what for? For later? For when? For consumption? Out of selfishness? Because others have it too? 


Don't we all just want to live in peace? A solid roof over your head, enough to eat and nice and pleasant neighbors. A healthy frugality.
And yet everything always complains about this and that. It's never just good. When are we satisfied?
 
Very few people on this planet have it as good as we do here. And this on all levels. We have food, we have drinking, we have houses and apartments, we have security, we have peace, here. But why do we have that? Why are we doing so well in this country? Have we - or our ancestors - really worked out and built everything ourselves?
Or have you not made use of other cultures and countries after all? Weren't we part of the colonization and / or the Christianization? Didn't we get involved financially or in terms of goods technology all over the world - clearly to our advantage?
You can say who wouldn't? If I don't, someone else will. Survival of the fittest. Yes, bravo. And everyone else is left behind.
In my opinion, this is not togetherness, so coexistence is not possible. Neither for mankind, nor for the animal world, nor for the plant world. The reason that only the strongest or the most intelligent of animals survive is a bit too short-sighted. It is certainly the case that nature regulates itself. But haven't we been part of the real nature for a long time? Have we not classified and treated all of our so-called indigenous peoples as primitive and undeveloped? With methods of coercion and violence. With inhuman, inhumane methods? And that should be civilized and highly developed? 

You must be joking. History has shown that if you take into account what is not read in the nicely combed history books, it is clear where the European wealth comes from. Our museums are all still full of the testimonies! But everyone looks the other way and quietly enjoy. Just don't give up anything of yourself, after all, you worked hard for it. Yes, most of the time we worked very hard. Past and present. Even up to burnout. But what for? That brings me to the subject of health. And thus also Covid. It's bad, it was underestimated, it was a turning point in a cloud-bedded society. And yes, we were restricted. But wait a minute. How was that in other countries? There are so many countries that most young people don't have the choice of choosing a job, let alone going out to party every weekend. But here people complain that the youth have lost a year. What exactly was lost this year? Has the fun been lost? Oops, you suddenly have time as a youngster. Well what the hell am I going to do with it? I only get depressed when I have to deal with myself. Because then I become aware of my own lack of perspective due to the omnipresent abundance and I don't want to worry about that at all. 


Where do we come from? Where are we going? What is the meaning of life? Most of these questions we ask ourselves only at the beginning and then again at the end of our lives. But what happens in the meantime? Are we too busy with everything? With what actually? In this country also with survival? Or with working out the finances for the material and for fun on the weekend? Often this functioning is too much or too unfulfilling. Or is it just me? Is it just me asking myself these thoughts and questions in the meantime? Should you really wait until you become so seriously ill that you are forced to grapple with it, to deal with it?
 
Or is it easier when you see everything negatively? Everything talks badly and you feel so good because everything sucks anyway and you have an excuse for everything, and something to do so that you don't have to devote yourself to solving the problem, to finding the problem? Or do we actually have no problems at all? It's all good, isn't it? 

 

Let's call things as they are.
We order clothes, cell phones, jewelry, food, everything we want on the Internet, in the world wide web. Global. Everything comes from everywhere, is transported around the world, goods, goods, plants, animals. We are connected to everything and everyone through the Internet. The vulture doesn't know what to get advertising from. We use globality every day, but we don't really care about the world's problems. You can't change anything about it anyway. You can only change something on a small scale. Starting with yourself. I also came to this wisdom. Yes, admittedly, it's not always easy. And it will probably remain an ongoing process. But maybe that's a good thing. Otherwise it meant that you stopped. Incidentally, I often use the word ‘man’ because I save myself having to write the male and female versions each time. Although I once learned in school that you don't write in essays. But I'm getting off course. However, admittedly, there are already a lot of rules and restrictions in this country, right? Or is it just me? Back to the topic. We use the advantages of globality but turn a blind eye or at least the responsibility for the earth. Who is responsible for the earth, for the whole world, if not us? Who can change something in global injustice if not all of us together? However, what is preventing us from doing this? Belief in a jurisdiction that is not in our hands? Or the strength, the possibilities? Let others do that. That's what we have the politicians for. But what has changed in the last 100 years ago in politics, except that it mostly became more perfidious? Or is our own egoism hindering us? Do we find the same thing for everyone, but a little more for me? What do we really need to live? What will it be in the end - and the end of every life will probably come - which we look back on? What made us happy What did we learn? What have we achieved? When I was the president of a Spitex with 50 employees, I learned a lot from and about palliative care. That opens your eyes to some of the questions mentioned above. And also your own answers. What I'm getting at is that we should all take responsibility for our world and not leave ourselves to others. I want justice, fairness, sustainability, health, peace. Why is it so difficult to do? I think a great many people on this planet want exactly the same thing. No more and no less. But what happens if only one or just one person claims a little more for themselves, even though they know perfectly well that they are taking more out than the others? And what if she is still looking for and finding accomplices or allies - which methods are clear - then the whole thing can tip over. Are we back to the topic of survival of the fittest. After me the deluge. I know it better. The faster is the faster. Well, that's just not a cooperation, not a team. Yesterday I watched the great film Volunteer on SRF Play. That's exactly what it is. Some stand up, fight for good, for freedom and justice. 

But the brotherhood of some other brothers is very limited when it comes to your own garden. Then you hear solidarity, brotherhood and sisterhood as well as neutrality usually ceases rapidly. 

Our mental hospitals are full. I wonder why? Our hypocrisy sucks. Pathetic. Like the maggot in bacon.
What can we change now? I think we all have to get up together after thinking. Thought for yourself, about life, about meaningfulness, about our heart. About our time here. About that now. But when is the time to get up? When did enough happen? Wait until we die, then our children can do it. We're getting off lightly, aren't we?
 
I say now is the time. If not now then when? Tomorrow? In a year? How long do we want to wait? What do we want to wait for? What excuse do you have now? How often do we want to lie to ourselves? 

 

But what exactly do we want to change? We want justice, we want sustainability. We don't want to spend any more tax money on wars. We no longer want our proxy wars, in which we have always deserved, as history says and to this day. We no longer rent our weapons and combat machines and planes, no, we don't want any and no bloody money from them either. We don't want animal suffering. We want to be together. We want to feed everyone in the world. We do not want large corporations that buy up all the water on earth, just so that the poorer do this, because they no longer have groundwater, because the large corporations pump it out, this for a lot of money, which they do not have, now in plastic (or no matter in which bottles have to buy. We want everyone to have a roof over their heads and enough to eat. Yes, that's exactly why we often go without meat.
Are these blue-eyed goals or wishes? Yes, exactly, they are, and by the way, I have blue eyes too. A little blue-green, but what the heck. Whether brown, blue, green or whatever color the eyes, hair or skin color has or have, does not matter at all. Is it that difficult ??! 


So much is going so wrong, selfish, violent, humiliating, unfair, hateful, corrupt and simply unbelievable. And yet we all take it somewhere. The media report about it, the politicians occasionally speak about it, but it doesn't happen. One condemns this and that, but nothing changes. A brief outcry here, a frown there. And after a short time everything resumes its usual course. Here a war, there hundreds of murdered, here an environmental disaster, there an emergency. Well, that's the way it is. It will continue like this until either everyone has killed themselves and / or there are no more raw materials in the world. Is that really our goal? Are we really taking it that way?
 
I say no. And I defend myself against it. Starting small is good. But it is not enough. There has to be more. We have to think and act on a larger scale! Together in togetherness. 


It is about the human, animal and plant relationship. It's about our only (!!!) planet and our life and that of our children and grandchildren.
It's about limiting our own egoism! It's about fairness!
It's about togetherness!

thought (n.)

Old English þoht, geþoht "process of thinking, a thought; compassion," from stem of þencan "to conceive of in the mind, consider" (see think). Cognate with the second element in German Gedächtnis "memory," Andacht "attention, devotion," Bedacht "consideration, deliberation."


Bammesberger ("English Etymology") explains that in Germanic -kt- generally shifted to -ht-, and a nasal before -ht- was lost. Proto-Germanic *thankija- added a suffix -t in the past tense. By the first pattern the Germanic form was *thanht-, by the second the Old English was þoht.


Second thought "later consideration" is recorded from 1640s. Thought-crime is from "Nineteen Eighty-Four" (1949); thought police is attested from 1945, originally in reference to war-time Japanese Special Higher Police (Tokubetsu Koto Keisatsu).

Reason
 
I have hope. I see the need.
I am neither a good singer nor do I have any other talents I know. That's why I write. And what do I have to lose?
It's always easier to say no than to look for solutions. The latter makes more sense, I think.

For reasons of writing fluency, I usually gender nutural terms. But since I am a woman, it should be clear to everyone that I am writing in the sense of all persons. All in all I write as it suits me. Thank you for understanding.

Blog July 20, 2021 - Why should I help?

Created with Sketch.


Why exactly should I help? After all, I have more than enough problems on my own. Let others do that. Those can do it who have no or at least fewer problems of their own and more money than I have.

What is noticeable here, however, is that if each and every one takes care of their own challenges, who will take care of the bigger picture?
Since Switzerland is a Schengen and Dublin state, it goes hand in hand with EU asylum policy. Switzerland, our Federal Council, is therefore actively involved in the 'New Pact on Migration and Asylum'. A 'state-neutral zone' is now to be created on European soil at the EU's external borders, where asylum cannot be sought!
On what basis do you come to agree to this on behalf of all Swiss citizens and at the same time support the Frontex company financially with all of our tax money? It seems to me that we, as Swiss, are clearly violating the human rights convention, which is a binding international treaty and is anchored in our federal constitution.

Are we not all knowingly guilty of willful human rights violations (we are unable to apply for asylum because a fictional zone on European soil is specially created for it) and murder (pushbacks are largely financially supported by Frontex)?

What about our freedom and our democracy? How free and how democratic are we really in this country? We pride ourselves on neutrality and compliance with human, children's and asylum rights. But we do not follow, implement or adhere to them. Look to Greece.

Let's go back a little in history. Who of us still believes that Switzerland was not involved in the division of Africa and America? Did we really have nothing to do with profit from slaves? Where did the cotton, the tobacco, the chocolate and the coffee come from? All of this is kept secret in our history books. Read the book 'Journey in black and white - Swiss local appointments in matters of slavery' or look at the documentary series 'Decolonization'. Likewise the events of the documentary 'Abused and re-educated', here too Swiss people were involved. So, our red and white vest is definitely more red than white - a small white dot on our flag would probably correspond more to reality ... We haven't even discussed the financial sector here.

We all share responsibility for our history as well as for current Swiss and world happenings. It's up to all of us, to each and every one of us. Helping is part of us, let us reflect on it in our hearts. Not only in corona times. Helping is human. There are no limits to helping and no borders. That's the future. Our future.

Blog September 2nd, 2021 - Less is more and the self-fulfilling prophecy

Created with Sketch.


Always faster, always better, always further, always higher, always more efficient, always more, more more, more and more. Everywhere we look everything is increased to the point of no longer possible and driven to the extreme, to the limit. From top sport to meat production. From rocket building to Mars to the DHL service. More and more in a shorter time, higher and higher and further to - yes to where actually? When is it enough? Until it runs out of resources or when people end up in burnout? When should the goal be achieved? Yes what goal anyway? The greatest possible profitability? The wealth of a few or the power of individuals? Or if our planet is everywhere just a desert that has been sucked empty or is so shaken by natural disasters and can no longer recover? Or if there are no more healthy animals and plants? When is it finally enough? When do we think about it?
In our cycle of working - sleeping - spending money and working again - sleeping - spending money, we no longer see the connections, the important things. Yes what is the important thing? Survival? Yes, for sure the survival of humans, animals and plants. Health. The health of the earth.
In our European tradition, in our religiously shaped society, Christianity, where is the mindfulness of our earth? History has shown that Christianization, colonization, slavery and the exploitation of all earthly resources can and will be justified on the basis of the Bible. The latest findings even show that rape, pedophilia and murder were allowed to be committed in the name of God. This applies not only to Christianity based on the Bible for 2000 years, but also to the Koran. Everything can and will be sanctified in the name of God or Allah. All atrocities. In our history books this is of course left out. After all, all deeds were done for ‘the good’ and in the name of the Lord Almighty and their representatives. 
 

Let us turn the wheel of history back a little further - far before the Christianity that has endured and is believed to this day and its excesses and shameful inheritance.
The first records of the Native Americans on stones and cave walls are 15,000 years old. They show life, they show the connection to the cosmos, they show calendars, solar, lunar and Venus calendars. They show the first democracy. They show the connection, the unity, the cooperation between humans, animals, plants and the cosmos. The Native Americans were and still are - spiritually. With them the sun is a deity. And mother earth. It is central to their belief that we care for Mother Earth. You are connected to nature and the cosmos. Another central point is that people are only guests on earth. This is in contrast to: The world belongs to man.
For me, the way we deal with the earth is reflected in our dealings with ourselves. We not only plunder the earth, we deal with ourselves in the same way. We are like a microcosm of the whole. For all of us societies, the wisdom of the Native Americans would do more than good. Well worth thinking about. About our goal, about the really important questions in life. In our time-limited life. About our limited life. About our limited resources. Over our limited horizons. About our black and white thinking. About our judgments in good and bad. About the meaningfulness of our actions. About our legacy to our future generations.
What again should the goal be? The exploitation of all natural resources? The holy war? The apocalypse or the jihad? Eternal life in heavenly paradise?
We are allowed to live as guests on this beautiful earth. However, we behave like parasites. In relation to the earth but also in relation to ourselves - and to our neighbors.

The main thing is higher, further, faster, better. More more more.
The main thing is that we are the believers, the good, the know-it-all, the almighty.
The main thing is that we support religious and power wars with our latest Swiss weapons. For the Christian order. All in good faith. But how GOOD is this supposed belief really - in fact and in truth? What do we really want to believe for our future? 

Blog November 14, 2021 - Rethink the context

Created with Sketch.

 Who hasn't understood the connection yet?

People always only react when it directly affects them or when it 'hurts' themselves. Only then does it get going and want to change something.

If injustice is done to others, it does not affect him, because firstly it is far away and you are fine yourself - so there is no reason to change anything.
That is bad and very sad in itself.

But that climate neutrality, human rights, animal and plant protection as well as the limited resources on our planet are directly related and affect each and every one of us directly, Homo Sapiens (the wise man) has still not understood.
Why is that? In disinterest or in a limited amount of wisdom?
This connection affects everyone on earth!

1. The drastic climate change has now become noticeable for everyone (floods, extreme winds and hurricanes, torrential thunderstorms, drought and forest fires, drought, etc.). It has thus been understood - although this has been predicted by science since the 1970s (60 years) - that we have to become climate-neutral as quickly as possible so that the planet does not warm up any further. (see Kyoto Protocol)

2. Due to the negative effects of climate change, more and more people will have to flee their homes. Not only wars, but above all hunger and thirst will drive millions more people in the future in search of a place on earth that is worth living in. We all, including Switzerland (!), Violate human rights every day. We are no better than Trump with his wall to the south. Switzerland pays around 14 million francs a year to Frontex (European agency for border and coast guards) with our tax money. These payments will increase to 75 million francs in the future (because the EU wants to upgrade Frontex and since the contributions of the individual Schengen member states are calculated based on their GDP in relation to the GDP of all participating countries, Switzerland will pay up to 75 million francs in the future . Swiss Francs per year to Fortress Europe). We signed the four Geneva Conventions on Human Rights from 1949 and the two Additional Protocols from 1977 and the one from 2005, which form the core of international humanitarian law. We Swiss in particular (note Henry Dunant from Geneva and the Red Cross) would be the main representatives of human rights! (see Geneva Convention)


 

3. Have our farmers (SVP politicians) not yet noticed that something has changed? Despite considerable progress and relief (machines of all types and sizes for everything) in the production and processing of food, the farmers in the fields must have noticed something. Did you notice any changes in the soil or the growing conditions? Even the hobby gardener has noticed the negative changes in the environmental conditions. In addition, the few bees and butterflies - practically no more insects. Everyone must have noticed! Yes, that diet has an impact on health is not a new finding either. You are what you eat! The pharmaceutical industry is definitely pleased. All the pesticides and the depleted soil, drink some of our groundwater! But no, the main thing is that you can spend millions on all environmentally friendly initiatives on a no campaign. But don't think outside the box. The fact is, we only have a few insects left - more than half are critically endangered. And that insects are related to plants, indeed are interdependent, should really be recognized by everyone. But there is still more ... Who Eats Insects? When there are almost no insects left, who is also out of food? Exactly, birds, rodents, reptiles, amphibians. And we all know that when the food chain is broken, it affects all of the following. And who are the last in the food chain? I hope that no longer needs to be answered!

4. Nor is it a novelty that the resources (raw materials / mineral resources) on our planet are becoming scarce. Wood, steel, oil, coal, phosphorus, copper, nickel, zinc. And don't forget water! The latter means a separate chapter. It must not be that we exploit the earth and then think that everything is still in balance - it will then grow back again. No it does not! And if some think, just because they have felt it firsthand, ok, if we have to improve the climate, then we will just dismantle all the resources that are needed for renewable energies, for example. Lithium for batteries, we continue with exactly the same mistake. Nothing learned from Historix.

Let's just ask ourselves: Who does the world belong to? And we realize that we are all just guests here. When do we finally act accordingly? When do we vote sustainably for the future of all of us in referendums?

United

What if I die tomorrow?
Ok, few people on this planet will care.
That's how it is.

Except maybe at the moment whether vaccinated or unvaccinated,
died in the former is perhaps enough for an FB entry, or for a very small entry in the constantly updated statistics for the latter.

But what if we all die tomorrow?
Ok, the flora and fauna on earth probably won't miss us too much.
Are we gonna miss ourselves? Is that possible?

A disease is one. There are numerous types of illness. So many very bad ones. There are dying people through disease, through murder, through old age, through hunger, through thirst.
What about all the dead people? How many of us have yet to die?

Assuming we could, before we all die tomorrow, press a reset button and paint and shape the world from scratch as we dream and wish, what would the planet look like, on which we are to for our short life time as guests?

We all knew it in our hearts.

Namely exactly like that.

Quiet. The heat in us. Connected.

Good night.

PS1. I'm not dying (at least as far as I know. But what do I know). Or am I only interested in all of this because - without knowing it - I am already dying?

PS2. I used to hear the saying 'The smarter one gives in, the donkey stays'. In the meantime, I think it should be better said: 'The cleverer goes on, the donkey takes the ladder later'. 



Blog August 7, 2022: Nowadays

Created with Sketch.

Keepin' people inna poverty,

So called the modern slavery.

 

Making profit, materialism and capitalism, 

Work all day for the babylon system, 

But still no able to feed the family. 

 

No plants grow no water comes clear, 

The result of climate change is here.

 

Suffering and fighting. Life s no mixture of effort, danger and joy. 

We must fight for human rights, equality and sustainability. 

No borders so people can move. 

Tax the establishment and global corporations - online and for real. 

 

Togetherness and positivity, 

Respekt, hope and love. 

One human race, one planet, one solution. 

Blog September 8, 2021 - A word about cultural appropriation 

Created with Sketch.

I eat Italian pizza, Asian rice and enjoy Mexican tacos. The tomato on my pizza originates from Central America and the potato in my Swiss Rösti comes from South America by root. My electronic devices and their contents come from all over the world. My clothes and the fabrics they are made of are not only of Swiss origin. Furthermore, I have an 18-year-old child with a man from Africa. In my free time I do Indian yoga or take care of an Arabian horse. Musically I listen to positive world music with good rhythm. I understand and speak five languages. Not perfectly, they are not my mother tongues, I just 'acquired' them, partly even had to acquire them in school. And at the moment I work as a DaZ teacher. I even teach German to others. 
 
So tell me, what is your culture and what is mine? What do you understand by culture? 
 
Culture is defined as follows:
_______________________________________________________________
(Oxford Languages dictionary online) 
Kul-tur 
/kʊlˈtuːɐ̯,Kultúr/ 
 
Noun, feminine [the] 
1a. [without plural] totality of the intellectual, artistic, formative achievements of a community as an expression of human higher development "human culture"
1b. The totality of the characteristic intellectual, artistic, formative achievements created by a particular community in a particular field during a particular epoch "Western culture".
_______________________________________________________________ 


So, now a word to the currently often discussed so-called cultural appropriation: 
All European museums of our historically extremely formative ex-colonial powers, such as France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Great Britain and more or less indirect profiteers such as Switzerland should immediately return all looted and stolen cultural treasures of the African, Australian and the Americas completely, without discussion and comment! The same applies by the way to art treasures - and goods from the Nazi time! 
Furthermore, the European-Christian church as well as primarily the states of Canada, and Australia as well as numerous others, have an irreparable debt towards all Natives and First Nations, from which whole generations (!!!) of children (!!!) were robbed! 
We really want to talk about cultural appropriation? Then it's down to the nitty gritty! 
Because here it concerns under acts of war brutally and egoistically appropriated culture, yes not only goods but even humans with and in their entire mental and physical being!!! 
 
And not about dreadlocks and a schizophrenic kind of the external and superficial denouncing, which wants to conjure up a divisive new racism - actually once again reduced to the exterior, namely the skin color. 
If my adult daughter - she is Swiss born (with a red passport) and has a higher pigmented skin color than the average Swiss - would wear dreads and play reggae music in a band, that would be right for everybody. Nobody would have anything to complain about. 
Do you notice something? 

 
People are and make culture. 
 
The eye too often sees first, before the brain switches on or we take our pure feeling for true and listen to the latter and feel unconditionally. 
 
Keep your focus on respectful togetherness. 
Spread love!

Blog October 8, 2022: Criticism is good (Care work blog)

Created with Sketch.

As we all know, criticism is good. And important. Yes even ... criticism is like ... sandpaper.
Criticism moves us forward, they say. Even 'hate speeches' on social media are the highest form of recognition and love, I read. Okay, so some people have a rather peculiar way of expressing their love, I think. Especially when the 'loved one' has to undergo psychological treatment as a result and withdraws from the - oh so - social media altogether, even having to accept death threats against herself and her family. Admittedly, finding the love behind a death threat does seem relatively challenging and questionable.
Unfortunately, this happens to many. Especially women. Women who publicly state their attachments and intentions. All too often they are reduced to their appearance and their womanhood.
Yet the female sex makes up more than half of the human population! We women are discriminated against today and have been discriminated against in the past. For thousands of years. Simply for being a woman. Yes even discriminated against by man-women, not just some specific men! Today still! Agenda! Not only in Iran or Afghanistan. Also here in the - oh so - civilized, highly developed, social Switzerland!
The Swiss milk cow may be milked, according to the vote of 25.09.2022, another year to then fall into old-age poverty. Reasons for old-age poverty in Switzerland are:
Low education (34%)
Migration background (29%)
Rural residence (20%)
Being a woman (18%)!!!
Being widowed and divorced (18.17%).

Excuse me? Being a woman is among the reasons why almost 1 in 5 people are affected by old age poverty in Switzerland (!!!)? Being a woman? How can that be, when equality between women and men has been enshrined in Swiss law for 40 years?! The place of residence in Switzerland I can probably choose myself, whether country or city and also the educational opportunities in Switzerland are probably pretty fair for everyone, compared to other Langesgrenzen, up to very good (with ETH and HSG). But for simply being a woman as a reason? Hmm, the thought of unpaid work (care work = activities of worrying and caring) of women comes to mind. For family, housework and volunteer work. Raising children, caring for children, caring for family members, caring for the elderly.
Wait a minute, having children as well as raising one's own offspring secures our future economy in Switzerland! But a thank you, mother, if at all, must be enough for all the years of hard labor and care work. Isn't it? We are far away from payment for the fact that the women secure the economic future. Or should the women also be artificially inseminated like the milk cows, so that the economy works?!!!
Already strange, short-sighted, egoistic, money-greedy, unsocial and unsolidary Switzerland-er! Period.
Just 1% of the total world wealth is in female hands. But women are still discriminated and exploited. And that today in 2022, here and now. 
And if a female opens her mouth, she is either hysterical and unsatisfied or a stupid bitch. To be read at any time on the - oh so - social media. If she criticizes, she is a know-it-all, if she does too little she is a profiteer, like a maggot in bacon or just the classic, blue-eyed do-gooder.
The main thing is that she can be put down, then you're satisfied. Criticism is good, isn't it?

Criticism is good, but doing it better yourself is better!

It's time for the first female party in Switzerland - and worldwide!
Good men and all LGBTQIA+ are of course welcome to join, as well as all First Nations, peace lovers, do-gooders, environmentalists, animal rights activists, conservationists, free spirits, clergy, atheists, altruists and activists, all so-called minorities, all pacifists, self-supporters and positive future people for a connected world. But first and foremost all women! 
The global problems can only be solved globally. By us! 
Neither the G8 nor the G20 idiots can do it. The UN can't do it either. The World Bank and the IMF even less. They don't want it either, but the opposite.

We do. 

It is time for the female view of the world. It is time for the female view of the world. 
It is time for the female world order.
High time. We had the male one now for over 2000 years and we all see where it has brought us. To ruin. It becomes the longer the worse. Let's not fool ourselves. It runs shitty, where woman looks. Human rights, the environment, war, sustainability, resources, justice, wildlife, food, glaciers, toxins, abortion rights, depression, profit optimization, and and and - the list is endless.
Sure, every now and then a little light can be seen somewhere. But that doesn't affect the big picture. We need to think bigger. Think further. And act accordingly.

Go women! And the whole community! Let's finally stand up! Together! Worldwide! For us! For human rights! For our children! For Mother Nature! For justice! For femininity! For the future of all of us!

We are not a one-day issue. We are not just here for one issue. No, we are here for good and always have been.
We will not be thwarted anymore. Neither by bureaucracy nor by the financial market. Neither by power struggles nor by so-called saber rattling. We have already taken too many blows, too much violence, too much discrimination. 
We are already there. Everywhere - worldwide. Our matrix already exists. Let's finally unite in a sustainable and tear-proof way!

Women! Sisters! From all over the world! Get up! Stand up! Stand up for your rights!
We don't give up the fight!

Blog December 19, 2021 - She is wonderful 

Created with Sketch.

 

She is wonderful. 
She brings life, over and over again. 

Every detail, no matter how small, is attuned to the other. 

She is magical. 
She is a genius in all her details and in her interplay. 

The true paradise. 

She adapts and accepts challenges. 
She purifies herself. 
She sees and includes the big picture with all its interconnections. 

She, the earth is a female existence. 

But she needs the light of the sun to shine, to warm herself and to breathe. 

 

And the masculine. - Ohh, that one big man*. 
Instead of warming and protecting her, he robs Mother Earth. 

He helps himself wherever he can and destroys her in the process. 
He robs her. He considers her as his property. 
Although man is only a guest here. 

Instead of living gratefully from her fruits and becoming one with her, he kills her. 
Piece by piece. Already much too long. 
And he does not understand it in his power madness. 

Blinded by greed and possession. 

Always more, more, more. Until it has nothing left. 

 

And for what? To impress others. 
To leave a stamp for eternity? 

Unfortunately in the negative, destructive. 
Only a bad, selfish memory with a bitter aftertaste remains. 
Exploited. Empty. Irrevocably, irretrievably destroyed. 

 

It's time to think about it, man. Think human, think. Come back to your origin. 
Finally find your roots again! Come to yourself. Find your true meaning in life, in your finite existence. 

 

Come on. Protect us. Protect yourself. Protect the future. 

We fight together. Together we are strong. We are one. See the connection, see the link. 
See the big picture!

Blog December 20, 2022: Woman, listen for a moment!

Created with Sketch.

Woman, listen for a moment!

You got your hands and your soul.

Your lungs and your heart.


Use it. Use it. Sister use it.


You got your eyes, your feelings and your brain. Your connected brain.


Yes you are. You are here. We are here.


Sunshine and smile. Pain and destruction.

Yes you see. Yes we see.


Tears and weakness. Hopelessness, oh so often. Swallowed and vomited.


Breathe again. Woman breathe again.

Don‘t cry. 
Trust. Oh woman trust.


I listen to my heartbeat. I remember the sun in me. 
I breathe again. 
And I see. I feel. I breathe. 
And I smile. I find my reason again. 
I am here. 
You are here. 
My sister. My brother. My friend. 
All are different, but we are all the same. 
We all belong together. 
Some forgot. 
We all sometimes forget. 
What if we all remember - now? Right now, all at the same time.

We will listen and remember. 
We know. 
And move. 
And shake our heads. 
And move and talk and smile and don’t waste our time anymore.
