Japan and the Globe: Okaerinasai - Welcome back, Life?
Fearing a human stampede, panic and desperation, as excuse not to tell the truth to the masses may be very noble, however, not to inform millions of global wage workers about the real state of affairs of corporate imperialism, about planned, man made massacres and disasters ... this is really criminal.
In fact, across the centuries, the ruling 'creme de la creme' never told the 'wretched of the earth', the 'miserables' and 'outcasts' the truth as dominated classes. As historical process, these 'speaking tools' know very little about their mortal quo vadis, about their future, that is, their progressive pauperization and eventual extermination in a mode of destruction, based on master-slave relationships.
Must first a disaster happen which could wipe Japan off the metropolitan map before we go onto the streets to protest against capitalism and its atomic energy Moloch?
The ruling class, the world elite, the herrenvolk, the master race, has a lot of things to hide from the public, hence, its Achilles Heel is the Truth. There is nothing that Capital fears more than the Truth. This is why we have to seek the famous needle in the haystack in order to get to know what exactly occurred in Chernobyl and Three Mile Island, and what is occurring now in Fukushima. We will discover that those who don´t see the imminent danger, as a result of' 'total denial', are precisely those who are living right 'on the edge' of radioactive existence. They need some distance, literally and urgently; they are sitting at the foot of the warning lighthouse, they cannot see the perilous radioactive tsunamis coming nearer by the second.
This has nothing to do with the 'gospel truth', 'revelations', Illuminati conspiracy or 'black magic', on the contrary, the dangerous truths stare humanity in the face, in broad daylight.
It concerns all of us, the Northern Hemisphere, the Southern Hemisphere, the global sphere. Who sows a radioactive wind, will reap a cancerous, deadly storm.
* There exist hundreds of old, vulnerable, leaking atomic reactors on Mother Earth, and many more are planned to be constructed.
Until today, we still are reaping the effects of:
* nuclear bombs ignited high above the Earth and which caused an extension of the Van Allen Belts,
* those which fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki,
* atomic tests conducted by the United States, the Soviet Union, France, South Africa, China, in the atmosphere, deserts and oceans,
* the radioactivity set free and radioactive wastelands caused by mining uranium
* the radioactive contamination of land, groundwater, air by the employment of depleted uranium weapons
All of all these cumulative factors together poison and cripple life, spell doom.
There is no way to clean up this radioactive mess imposed on us by corporate profit seekers of military and 'civil' kind. It's a silent, invisible killer which is going to outlast us.
According to the law of probability the very existence of the above mentioned factors already verifies that ruling class man is suicidal, is hell bent on extinguishing life on planet Earth. The reckless producing of radioactive contamination by the major metropolitan powers is one of the most heinous crimes against nature and society, against precious life. We need not search for life on other planets when we destroy life all over on our planet, from Kosovo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Irak, Gaza and Libya, to Chernobyl and Fukushima. Also, we do not develop 'Life Sciences', but rather 'Death Technology', including atomic plants.
However, in Japan, as happens in a flourishing capitalist economy, the managers used to greet each other with a proud: How is business? This is the real global context of the Fukushima disaster. Business as usual, never mind the consequences. Those who are suffering the results of this corporate dictate are, as always, the working classes, and it is the workers who sacrificed their very lives in Chernobyl and now Fukushima to save what still could be saved, and to show us what is still human, humane and humanist. However, many do not know, will never know for what they have been toiling, 'living', and why they are slowly dying of cancer. This disaster is a sad tragedy for all humanity, for all life on the planet.
But let's remember that the danger of demise has threatened life on our planet before.
In planetary prehistory we have had some huge, natural cataclysms or 'extinction events' over the last millions of years; one of which destroyed almost 95% of the planet's species. We do not know whether 'the fittest' survived, whether only the 'white children of God' were saved or whether only the 'black, sinful children of Ham' escaped the tsunamis, but what we should know is that the next huge cataclysm will be man-made.
So, what are we waiting for to stop it from happening?
Will we further promote the radioactive poisoning of our planet? Will we further promote the rupturing of our ocean's seabeds by deepwater drilling? Will we further let corporations keep pushing the envelope as is being done from this summer on when BP resumes drilling in the Gulf of Mexico? Will we further allow them to massively dump poison into our oceans once they have messed up big? Shall we wait until the corporations have ruined our land, air, skies, oceans, life? Who talks about the Gulf of Mexico today? Who talks about the Niger Delta today?
Is it not time to stop the planetary pollution of the sea, land and air; the destruction of the ozone layer, the destruction of what remains of our health by dangerous vaccinations, the spraying of chemicals into the air we breathe; the threat to life from the existence of stockpiles of arms of mass destruction, depleted uranium weapons, white phosphorous bombs, and not to mention the geophysical weapons?
Only then, we could say: Okaerinasai - Welcome back, Life!
