Concerned about us all and the world
Welcome to our article (54), Concerned about us all
Dear readers, just as the title of this article suggests, we have our personal concerns, because we see a few things that are worrying us. We know that what we are going to write in this article, some of you will think that it is a boring subject, as it does not add anything to what you already might know, but nevertheless we would like to put our views forward about what is happening in the world today, because we are worried and concerned.
I believe that what is happening in the world these days is not right, so, we should be concerned about this, because there are a lot of things that are not running the right way. We can hear the politicians talk about many things, telling us that they would fix them this way or that way. But they are getting nowhere in most country of the world, if not all of them.
Then, we believe that we got the right form of government in our own country, and that our government is doing the right things per the existing rules. But the reality is, that there are too many rules that although they are right on their own, they become an obstacle when something needs to be done in a different way, because if they are done per the accepted rules they might create a big problem later for everybody.
To understand what we are saying, it is enough to look at the news about what is happening in the world today; there are wars going on in the world with no end in sight, there are many refugees that these wars create, there are also refugees that run from their own countries, just because they believe that they would be better off in another country, which seems to be doing better than their own country, from their own point of view. But we believe that all what glitter is not gold, but not only that, these would-be refugees don’t seem to understand, that they might become a problem to the country they go to; for these reasons the world of today is not very stable, and it is becoming worse as the time goes on, so, we should look at what could be done to improve this situation.
We have reasons to believe, there are many things that we the people of this world could do, to improve the present situation, it is all a matter of planning what is the right thing to do in the long run, we are saying here in the long run, because today most things are done on a day to day basis, since there are disaccord how to fix things in a more permanent way. At this very moment while we are wring this article, there is this refugees crises in Europe that needs to be fixed; but how to go about it is hard to say, because here again there are many ways that we could use to fix it. So, let us look at this refugee crisis, and then we will comment about it; for the time being we will leave the other concerns behind and we will talk about them in another article.
This is one of the physical maps of the world that we live in
Today happenings and refugees problems
Many refugees going to Europe
Dear readers, again in the news, this sudden new tragedy of refugees in the Mediterranean Sea, has prompted me to go back to talk about them; you see, it is hard to ignore this event, because of the large number of refugee that have died, the report says that 700 to 900 people have died while trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea, from Libya to Italy, or perhaps we should say from Africa to Europe, since they come from many countries, and most of them are not Libyan citizen.
As you may know, we have already written a few refugees articles before, so, we have our own opinion about them, therefore, we would like to say what we see happening today, since we are concerned about these tragic events, which have happened in the last few days; but at the same time, we are also concerned about the outcome that these refugees may have in the long run, for themselves and for the countries that will take them, willingly or perhaps unwillingly, because they put a strain to the economy of that country.
We believe that it is a worldwide problem, so, not only Europe but the entire world has got to do something about this, because the large movement of these would-be refugees, that sometimes they might not be refugees, in the real sense of the word, but are people that are not happy with the way of life that they are living, in their own native country of origin. So, they want to move away from it, and go to live somewhere else. They want to do this because, they believe that the problem in their own country is not their fault and they deserve a better life. So, they leave their country in search of this better life, that they believe could be achieved somewhere else. But they don’t know the dangers that they will encounter during their journey, and the strain that they put in the countries that are forced to takes them, because they create a problem wherever they go. Now, let us talk about what is happening these days, and then, what could be the reasons for this large number of people to become refugees. Because it does not look good.
Refugees that have just disinbarked at the port of Catania
The outlook is not good
For everybody involved the outlook is bleak. One of this reasons is the great number of refugees, that move freely from one country to another. So, let us talk about it.
As we have said above, this group of people disembarked at the port of Catania are the lucky few saved, because over 700 people have lost their lives per what is being said. But that is not all, because when we look at the Italian news, or any European news there are more refugees everywhere, the whole scenario is freighting, there are old boats fool of people everywhere, one starts to wonder, whether this refugees are going to invade Europe in any way possible, so, one starts to wonder why this is happening now, and what could be done to stop this unwanted emigration happening. Just to have an idea of what is happening now, look at this other photo here under, where people are in danger and are crying for help. Of course, there are a lot more boats and other floating devise that these refugees use to reach Europe, just because they dream of a better life there. But the question is, will they be able to live a better life there, or is it going to be a dream that will turn into a nightmare for everybody. Therefore, we are concerned. But let us try to understand the main reasons why this is happening.
Refugees crossing the Mediterranean Sea and crying for help
What are the main reasons?
What are the main reasons, we should ask?
When we think of the reasons why people become refugees, if they are not real refugees from a war, or some other catastrophic natural events, we would like to know the reason why they become refugees. The first thing that comes to our minds, is that they are not happy where they are; this makes me think that the reason why they are not happy in their own country, it is because their country is badly run from governments that have not real powers. If that is the case, then, the people themselves are partly to blame, because they have a negative mentality, as they are not looking how to improve the situation for themselves, they rather try to rob each other of those things that are already there, this usually makes things worse, because by robbing and killing the country itself becomes poorer.
But that is not the only thing, these robberies and killings usually escalate, to the point that large gang of thieves are formed, with the mentality of trying to grab things from other people, or to control other people, this way of living may result in internal wars, which in turn will make that country even poorer, and therefore, harder to live a normal life and earn an honest living. This vicious circle needs to be stopped, right in the country where it originated, because that is the only way to stop it affecting its people. We should also point out, that this vicious circle will continue to exist, with those people that have used it where ever they go, this is what we would like to point out to the world.
We believe that the entire world should be involved in this, because the entire world would be affected by this refugee’s movement; now I suppose we should ask ourselves what could be done, to improve the present situation. Here is the greatest problem of them all, because it is not easy to change people mentality, but it needs to be done somehow, or all of us will suffer the consequences; it is obvious it is a vicious circle that needs to be stopped and fixed. Therefore, when we see these things happen, we are concerned, but let us look at the emigrant problem in Italy again.
Looking at the emigrant problem
As we have said in our last article, Italy modern history. Today Italy and most of the Italian people, are trying hard to cope with the illegal emigrants, they come in from Africa and the Middle East, and they might become a problem in the future, so, in this post, using our own values and imagination, let us see what these problems could be.
People that emigrate are usually poor people, they happen to live in a poor country (nation), the reason that their native towns and their countries are poor have many reasons, but above all the poverty is lack of good management of the resources that they might have, but that is not the only reason; because sometimes this poverty may also be due to changes that are unavoidable; if that is the case, then those people that emigrate have the right to emigrate.
Now, in general terms we believe that, if a region of the world has been able to provide for a good living standard, to a certain number of people for a very long time. Then the same region should be able to provide for the same amount of people indefinitely, if that region has a good government and management, and the people that live there try to do their best, and use their resources wisely. But that is not always the case, because people become careless and for that reason poor.
Therefore, our views are that those people that become illegal emigrant, they are not the best people that are able to plan for themselves, in such a way that they could support themselves, so, they slowly find themselves that they are becoming poor. Because they are becoming poor, they start looking around and see that some of the other people, that are living in other countries are better off than they are, so, they wish to be like them and move to that country.
Here I would like to point out that, they do not ask themselves, why the other people have been able to have a better standard of living than themselves, they only see that they have it, and would like to have that higher standard of living for themselves. In fact, that is the only thing that they see, they don’t even ask themselves why that has happened. So, they believe that the world owes them that same standard of living, just because they are living in this world. So, when people emigrate in great number, most of them will emigrate, because where they are living, it has become poor, and they are not able to look after themselves properly.
Now, we believe that the main problem that these emigrants have, is going to stay with them with the rest of their lives. We should admit here, some of them are going to be able to look after themselves, and become good citizen of the country that they have emigrated to, if they are offered a good chance. But when they emigrate in bulk, like they do these days, wherever they go, they are going to bring their own problem with them, so, the countries that are forced to accept them, should be very careful that they do, otherwise they could end up like the emigrant themselves, and therefore one day their own people, are going to become poor and emigrate somewhere else, because they have become poor, just like the emigrant that they were supposed to help; I hope that I have explained myself clear enough.
Now let us try to understand, what their problem might have been in the country of origin, and some of the reasons why they have fallen behind the rest of the world; because if we could understand that, then we would be able to help them, at the same time avoid the same mistake, and what could happen to us, if we don’t understand what is happening. So, let us see, what could be the reasons?
What could be the reasons?
What could be the reasons?
When we look at the illegal emigrant in Italy, we see that today most of them are African emigrants, this makes us think that perhaps it is the changes of temperature, which have been caused from the global warming, it has impoverished these countries to the point, that people should go to live somewhere else. Therefore, has been humanity themselves that have brought about this problem, so, if that is the case than we have to be reasonable, so, we have to help those people that emigrate the best way we can, after all it was us the rest of the world, that has caused this global warming. This would be one of the reasons, but is it possible that there are several reasons why these people emigrate, so, let us imagine what else could it be.
The second in line is the political scene; people belong to one party or another, they struggle for power, the struggle becomes so great, that they end up in violence and wars, so there are refugees that run away from their own country, who is to blame here would be hard to say, because both sides blame each other; but the rest of the world end up, by helping those refugees on humanitarian grounds.
Why these wars are started is unbelievable; they all seem to have a chain reaction, usually, from a small argument they become enlarged, until they become real wars on a large scale, that may last for years to come; as we know these days there is this war still going on in Iraq, and worse still most of the Middle East have wars going on, the outcome of these wars is that people are displaced and become refugees.
The wars’ refugees emigrate to other countries the best way they can. The countries that receive these refugees have to accept them on humanitarian ground, it would be cruel if they don’t. So, the rest of the world are willing to help these refugees, and they do it willingly. But, this willingness to help them may result one day in serious problems, as we have already seen, from the many violent acts that these people are capable to inflict.
Having said that, now we would like to see what most people think about it, and what is their opinion of how this problem could be solved.
A simple man opinion
A simple man opinion
I believe that, the world leaders should meet and find a way how to improve the economy of these impoverished countries, if the impoverished is the problem that causes most refugees. But at the same time, they should make clear to the people of those countries, that they would be better off if they remain in their own native country.
The reason for doing this is for keeping the stability of all countries involved, because the whole world system could become economically unstable; here I am pretty sure that some people would ask, why and how the economic system of those countries, that receive the refugees could become unstable; here there are a few things that need to be considered:
First of all the receiving country, has got to spend so much time and effort when these refugees arrive, then has to feed them and look after them, all these things put together cost a lot of money, so much money that this country does not have; so, it will slowly impoverish the receiving country, so, their living standard will slowly go down and it will continue to go down, if the refuges continue to arrive in large number; in fact, it could go down to the same level of the countries that the refugees come from. So, the number of incoming refugees, should be kept to a very low level whenever possible; this is my first point of view, but there is more.
We will talk about this in our next article, because this article is becoming too long.
See you soon.
