Why so many refugees
Dear readers, as we have written in our previous article, Homeless and refugees, today we should ask ourselves, why there are so many refugees in the world? Because they seem to come from anywhere and they go everywhere, some of them are real refugees, as we have explained in our article, since they are running away from natural disasters, or some disasters caused by wars that mankind wages, for one reason or another, or just because they like to fight wars, for some useless ideology that they have, which today the rest of the world condemns, as being useless and harmful.
Anyhow, these wars that they are fighting seem endless, as they have been going on for years, and they are causing a lot of people to leave their countries and become refugees. Then there are the people that are not happy with what they have, in their own native land. So, they become refugees, not because they are real refugees that have been displace from a natural disaster or war, but because they believe that if they go to another country, they could live a better life.
Anyhow, we could say here that everybody has the right to look for a better life. But at the same time, because we don’t know how they live their lives, we should assume that their lives are bad, otherwise they would not move from where they are. But, we could also ask here, are their lives that bad that they cannot stay in their native country? Because their forebears have lived in those countries for thousands of years. When I think about that this way, I have my doubts about the reasons they are moving. So, I would like to find out more, before I could say if they are doing the right thing. You see. By doing what they are doing, a few of them might find something better, but you don’t want to do that at the expense of other people. I am saying this, because it seems to me that this is what is happening in the world today. So, let us talk about this worldwide problem.
We need to talk about this worldwide refugees problem, because they are already causing many problems wherever they go. You see, when people are displaced in large number, there are bound to be problems, because the countries they go to live in cannot cope with them, but not only that, they also carry with them the same attitude and their own problems that they had, in their countries of origin, so, most of the problems they are running away from will continue to stay with them; these problems could cause lots of trouble where they try to settle. But there is more to say here, to show you what I mean, because while I am writing this article, in Southern Italy two refugees have died in a fire, that has burned down their makeshift refugee camp.
The Italian authorities are investigating, and it looks like that some organized crime has been committed. They say that some corporals are involved, these corporals are people that illegally control the work of these refugees, since, they take these refugees to work in the farms around the camp for a fee. Something did not work their way, so they burned down the camp and two young people are now dead. I hope you see what we mean, when we say that the refugees carry with them their own problems.

What could be done we may ask?
No one knows what is the best way to handle this refugees problem, the Italian authorities try hard to do their best. For a start, they go to help those refugees that their boats are in danger of sinking, or have already sung and try to rescue the refugees from the Mediterranean Sea. I that follow the Italian news on SBS, I know that there are too many days, when over a thousand refugees land in Italy, and that is just too many of them for the Italian authorities to handle properly, but they do their best. You see, Italy is not a big country and have already got their own problems with the earthquake refugees, that have been displaced as their houses have been destroyed from the earthquake, so, all these extra refugees put a strain on the authorities and the Italian economy.
Looking at all these problems that these foreign refugees cause, to the country they go to live in, we should start thinking if there is another way to solve this worldwide problem, but so far, nobody has come up with a good suggestion that could solve the refuges problem. Some people say that on humanitarian grounds, we should help these refugees, because they are human beings like us, so, I believe that we should help them. But when these same people that have been saved from drowning, they turn around and do nasty things to the native people in the country they are living, we should start to wonder if we are doing the right thing when we have saved them from drowning.
Because of all these nasty things that happen every now and then, and because there are also some terrorist elements in these said refugees. As we all know the many terrorist attacks that have happened in the last few years. Some leaders in the western world say that we should ban those people that are trouble makers. So, instead or running out to help them and bring them in your own country, we should try to stop them, at our own boundary. Like what President trump wants to do, he wants to erect a wall at the boundary between Mexico and USA. And, ban some people that come from countries that condones terrorist, to come to America.
Here I should say that perhaps President Donald Trump has got it right, just because he wants to stop the refugees, or at least slow down the refugees coming in thousands, when nobody has invited them to come. Of course, on humanitarian grounds we should think that they are people in need, so they should be helped, but this does not mean that they should be helped, before we help our own people in need of help. This is the question that we should ask ourselves. And then try to find an answer to that, so, we should investigate, if there are ways that would bring a better outcome.
Looking for anything that could help
The world today should look at this refugees problem more closely, so, not only they should try to help the refugees on humanitarian grounds, but they should make a greater effort to see if there are things that could be done in the countries of origin of the refugees, so that there will be less refugees in the world. In other words, we should investigate all the reasons why people become refugees, and then, do anything possible to fix the problems, which makes these people become refugees. I suppose that in the past we have already tried this in various parts of the world, but we have had a limited success.
In my own personal views, I believe that the world should not give up, looking for the reasons why these people become refugees, in the first place. Because there could be something that could be done, we should be looking at the reasons why these people become refugees, then try to fix those things that make people leave their own native land.
We need to fix these problems at the source, because tomorrow they might spread even more, and then, it will be harder to fix them. You see, today the refugees are already causing many problems in the western world, which could easily grow to unforeseen problems, which we intend to point out, in our next article, since this article would become too long, if we talk about it now.
See you soon, in our next article, exploring the refugee’s reasons.
