Most of the greatest issues which we face can not be dealt with in isolation.
That is why we need to rethink how we approach many of the most urgent issues which endanger us all, and that means we do need to engage in joined up campaigning.
Here are just a few examples of how this might be achieved.
Plastic Ship Building
If we were to live in a society in which people thought more about our rubbish, then not only would a lot of our ecological problems be over, but in doing so we could solve many of our economic problems too.
Ship building & Barrow
Of course the other side of this is just how we clean up the oceans of all the plastic which is floating in it, Getting that done will require many specialist sea craft to scoop it all up. There are a number of designs for such craft. All we have to do is build them.
The other aspect of this is that the collected plastics can be recycled & that will mean less oil being drilled.
While the ship building industry can switch over their production away from that of building war ships.
Many is the time we get to hear that something needs to be done in order to create jobs, but the kind of jobs on offer, or which might be on offer, create more problems than they will ever solve.
For example in the arms trade.
What is needed is a some creative thinking in order to stop this kind of thing occurring.
An earlier example of what might be done is The Lucas plan, which came up with Road Rail Vehicles.
Yet for many politicians the priority is not so much looking to save our future, but to save something of the glories of a false past.
Yet in Germany there are a number of memorials to the Unknown deserter, but no such memorial exists within the UK.
Although there is a Conscientious Objectors Commemorative Stone in Tavistock Square.
Other examples of what can and should be done include: –
– Planting more trees & creating new forests.
– Moving towards a better public transport system, with the creation of many more tram and railway lines.
– Stopping nukiller power via the use of wind and solar power.
