Why we, as a specie, should aim at nuclear disarmament
Living in Europe, today, means living without a shield in the atmosphere against a nuclear weapon. The same shield humanity uses for preventing a meteorite destroying our specie could be used to avoid that kind of threat.
We don’t have it, yet.
Of course, my imagination these days runs in a dystopian future. But there’s always utopia whispering, in the back of my mind, we can do better.
I know how death happens when these weapons hit the ground, it’s horrible: NO ONE SHOULD FEAR THIS KIND OF THREAT. But still, with the conflict going on, I fear it.
«Going nuclear» means we, as a specie, would be wiped off the planet even before the climate change hits us for good. So, we can all hope it will never happen.
But all we have is hope.
And as climate change hits harder and harder, humanity keeps losing precious time that we’ll never have back.
Plus, there’s the WASTE OF MONEY.
We live in a world where money has a weight: we pay the bills, we buy food, we pay rent.
WE PAY TAXES. WE SHOULD BE LISTENED: that’s OUR money.
It’s incredible how, while we suffer with all the economical crisis going on, those in power wasted a ton of money on weapons that hopefully they will never use.
Think seriously about this: do you agree with it?
Do you feel it was necessary?
Because I don’t, and I think that maybe you agree with me here. We’ll never have that money back. NEVER.
The only hope for us, to survive as a specie, is being united in the will to advance in science to find a way out climate change, not advancing in it for military use. Progress doesn’t mean THIS. Those before us made that huge mistake, still WE CAN DO BETTER.
The first step to take into that kind of future, the one that the new generations deserve as well as we do, is nuclear disarmament.
NO ONE SHOULD LIVE WITH THAT THREAT IN THE BACKGROUND OF THE MIND.
The war happening these days is just one of the many going on. They’re all terrible in the same way, for the people under the bombs. This one could escalate to extinction.
IF NUCLEAR WEAPONS WEREN’T THERE, THIS POSSIBILITY WOULDN’T EXIST.
Besides, with technology we could even be sure every country does it at the same time: that’s a show I’d love to watch. NOT WAR.
I, as a teacher, human being, artist, STEP UP FOR NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT.
Join me, PLEASE.
Time passes anyway, we have NO CONTROL OVER IT.
I don’t want to grow old in this kind of society.
IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE. ☮️
