Appetite For Change

Submitted by ub on Mon, 09/21/2020 - 09:06

We the people of the world must wake up with an increasing hunger for truth, justice, and an appetite for real change which is possible if only so-called leaders are not interested in power grabs and filling their own pockets with global wealth. Signing agreements is not the same as solving problems.


World Climate Crisis - Climate crisis is a term describing global warming and climate change, and its consequences. The term has been used to describe the threat of global warming to the planet, and to urge aggressive climate change mitigation. For example, a January 2020 BioScience article endorsed by over 11,000 scientists worldwide, stated that "the climate crisis has arrived" and that an "immense increase of scale in endeavors to conserve our biosphere is needed to avoid untold suffering due to the climate crisis.


Global and Gender Inequality - Egregious gender inequality still exists globally despite substantial national and international measures that have been taken towards gender equality. Only four out of over 135 nations have achieved gender equality including Costa Rica, Cuba, Sweden, and Norway.


Education and Justice - Education for Justice is a basic legal knowledge, in which educational activities at all levels seek to promote understanding of crime prevention, peace, justice, human rights, and problems that can undermine the rule of law.


Health and Financial Safety Net - A financial safety net is not one savings account or an insurance policy, but rather a comprehensive portfolio of risk-reducing measures. A financial safety net is meant to protect you and your family, at least in part, from losing your financial security or derailing your long-term financial goals because of some unexpected event like a catastrophic illness or other personal tragedy.


The Peace Dividend - Peace dividend is a political slogan popularized by US President George H.W. Bush and UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in the early 1990s, purporting to describe the economic benefit of a decrease in defense spending. It is used primarily in discussions relating to the guns versus butter theory. The term was frequently used at the end of the Cold War when many Western nations significantly cut weapons of mass destruction.


Doesn't everyone want all people of the earth to be treated equally with human rights for all and return to basics and normalities?
