“No one is more hated than he who speaks the truth.”
One example of our behaviour – the car industry
According to the BBC, ‘Diesel emissions containing nitrogen oxide can trigger respiratory disease’.
Diesel-fuelled cars have come under intense scrutiny following Volkswagen’s 2015 ‘diesel-gate scandal’.
The German car manufacturers were forced to admit they’d been using non-regulatory software to fudge the numbers on US emission tests, which resulted in at least 11 million of their cars being affected by the scandal.
The public is now demanding reactions from their government. Be it in form of forcing the car industry to fulfil the environmental requirements, more transparency, more honesty or anything else. The public is asking the same government for solving the re-occurring diesel issue, that has given them these obvious problems:
Berlin (AP) — The number of people in Germany with immigrant roots rose 8.5 percent last year to a record 18.6 million, powered by the influx of refugees and other migrants up to the spring of 2016, official statistics showed Tuesday.
The Federal Statistical Office said people with an immigrant background — defined as those who either weren’t born as German citizens or have at least one parent who wasn’t — made up 22.5 percent of the country’s total population of 82.4 million in 2016.
There are now 2.1 million foreigners in Switzerland
The number of foreigners in Switzerland increased at a faster rate than the number of Swiss in 2016, according to new figures released on Wednesday.
As of January 1st 2017, the population of Switzerland was over 8.4 million, up 1.1 percent from the previous year, the Swiss statistics office said in its annual report.
However while the number of Swiss citizens grew by 0.6 percent in 2016, the number of foreign residents was up by 2.6 percent, it said.
There are now more than 2.1 million foreigners living in Switzerland, up from just under 2.05 million a year earlier, comprising 24.9 percent of the total population.
Hartz IV – Germany’s Working Poor
The Germans now face the highest number of impoverished workers in a decade, thanks to the draconian Hartz IV unemployment law.
Raising inequality – Germany number 2 in EU inequality ranking
Sixty percent of all German assets are in the hands of just 10 percent of the population. That puts Germany among the frontrunners for inequality in the Eurozone.
It is important to know, that the more economic inequality, the unhealthier a country´s people are on average. It is a systemic problem that has far-reaching consequences.
Results of the European Union – Structural violence
Definition: Preventable violence, death, and suffering resulting from human-generated institutions, specifically socioeconomic inequality.
Perhaps the most embracing way to think about how structural violence unfolds or metastasizes throughout society is as a form of social pollution. Just as air pollution common to cities has been linked to a spectrum of physical and mental health problems, on can think of market-induced inequality as a “toxic cloud” looming over society.
While inequality isn’t the only manifestation of socioeconomic structural violence, is is the central one of concern here, as it is the most prevalent and preventable.
Things that are killing us but we are doing them anyway
- Car industry (combustion engines)
- Coil burning
- Cellphones (Smartphones)
- Meat and processed food eating
- AI (Artificial Intelligence)
The results of all of these facts are always the same: Stress.
And stress is causing reduced physical and mental health – which leads to a reduced lifespan, reduced social stability – which leads to increased violence.
The Whitehall Study shows that psychosocial stress seemed to account for about 75% of the social gradient in mortality.
What is the true source that forces all these causes
Let’s have another look at the list of things that are killing us but we are doing them anyway:
The size of the global tobacco market is estimated at some US$770 billion, of which the global cigarette market is valued at around US$700 billion.
Car industry (combustion engines)
Automotive Sector Value: 1,098 bn USD
Coil Coatings Market worth $6,410.44 Million by 2019
Smartphone market worth $355 billion in 2020, with 6 billion devices in use
The aviation industry supports $2.7 trillion (3.5%) of the world’s gross domestic product (GDP).
Meat and processed food eating
Global Processed Meat Market will reach $1,567.00 Billion by 2022
AI – Artificial Intelligence
Market Value Projected: $1.2 tn (Global GDP annual growth rate of 3.5%)
According to the report, global cyber security market was valued at USD 105.45 billion in 2015, is expected to reach USD 181.77 billion in 2021 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 9.5% between 2016 and 2021.
Military budget of the United States
For FY 2017, President Obama proposed the base budget of $523.9 billion, which includes an increase of $2.2 billion over the FY 2016 enacted budget of $521.7 billion.
Current world population
7,607,547,941 (7.6 Billion)
Having a bad feeling
Looking at these big numbers of the different industries, we are seeing all pieces of evidence that are explaining how it is possible, that the level of inequality in all countries are constantly raising, how the number of homeless people is raising and life quality is rapidly declining.
Morpheus : Do you believe in fate, Neo?
Neo : No.
Morpheus : Why not?
Neo : Because I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my own life.
Morpheus : I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know, you can’t explain. But you feel it. You’ve felt it your
entire life. That there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is, but it’s there like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I’m talking about?
Neo : The Matrix?
Morpheus : Do you want to know what it is….?
Morpheus : The Matrix is everywhere. It’s all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window or when you turn on your television. You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes.
The Matrix is the world that has been pulled over your eyes, to blind you from the truth.
Neo : What truth?
Morpheus : That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind. Unfortunatly, no one can be told what the Matrix is, you have to see it for yourself.
Peegel Information: Can you see it now? Do you like to be a prisoner? Do you like to be a slave?
Are you still thinking, that any government will help you???
Remember: all I’m offering you is the truth. Nothing more.
