Who is in control of our empathy?

people-holding-hands

Our empathy is always our own to administer, however do we use our empathy to convince those who cause huge amounts of pain, such as families escaping poverty due to inequality, war or Climate Change to change their ways or be a solution and light to that existing pain.

Yesterday I posted a tweet reply to Alexandria Orcasio Cortez(AOC) that racked up quite a lot of impressions and likes, I was replying to her brilliant response to the cost of Insulin in the US which is $1000 per month WITH insurance, AOC went on to query further on to define how stock buybacks, where companies buy their own stock to push up stock value in turn affects the price of pharmaceuticals and how legislating against this would solve this horrendous inequality problem where the poor can’t afford basic health care, also AOC mentioned how her own struggle looking after her father before he died from a rare form of lung cancer, please watch here.

Solutions are needed not just the protest and the fight, such as the UN Global goals to combat Climate Crisis, hence the Worlds Largest Solar Thermal plant, check out my Weekend Empathy Tweets Moment on Twitter, click here.

Australian Indigenous recognition and improving the poverty gap has always been a political issue for as long as I have been born, I can just remember as a kid when Prime Minister Gough Whitlam pours soil into hand of traditional landowner Vincent Lingiari, Northern Territory’ 1975 Click here. Solutions such as Treaty and National Learning of Indigenous languages cannot be understated as a good step forward, click here to find more info, Weekend Empathy Tweets Moment, click here.

Homelessness, Housing affordability and Inequality in general due to unsubstantiated inadequate spending on people services, truth in political advertising is the key method to solving these issues , because if the govt is not spending on people services what is it spending the money on, its whole purpose is to create revenue and service for the people, click here for more info, Weekend Empathy Tweets Moment, click here.

Do you believe in placing out a Welcome Mat to those in need?

Welcome Mat Blog

 

I most certainly believe in placing out a welcome mat for people such as refugees, people fleeing violence oppression and victims of inequality such as the homeless and even whistle-blowers who expose a governments wrong doing and being harassed and bullied by an authorities’ abuse of power such as Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning to name some good examples.

In traditional media and on some social media funnels these people seem to be demonised or seen as a threat????? Where did we lose such common sense, education and empathy? Every problem has a solution, what we should be doing is focusing and promoting solutions not a political hatred and not using people in despair as political ping pong ball distractions and looks like I am not alone in my thinking.

Since last update I have noticed a huge spotlight being put on refugees, a simple tweet I posted asking people to donate to ARC(Asylum Seeker Resource Centre) received just under 5000 impressions, minutes after it was posted(click here). Alexandria Orcasio-Cortez in my firm opinion a Human Rights Champion put up the argument that on the US Border there are concentration camps under these definitions, that seems to fit correctly. Click here

I have always found in my experience when you have a significant amounts of corruption, you then have a significant amounts of inequality, all of this is driven by a certain economic interest, people who want to use govt money for other things than building a community. Julian Assange founder of Wikileaks uncovered huge amount of political corruption on both sides, a good example is how the US is applying jurisdiction to other countries and now he is slowly being precipitated against and bullied. Click here

In Australia we are starting to see similar examples such as the AFP(Australian Federal Police) raids on a political journalist Annika Methurst and the ABC – Click Here  In Queensland we have the Qld govt more or less approving a ridiculous thermal coal mine Adani(see previous blogs) instead of adequate funding for troubled youth and as a result we have kids in watch house(click here)

We need more empathy in our world, along with welcome mats and less BS as the March for our Lives teenagers rightfully call it.

Are you in a state of Wellness and Self-fulfilment?

Wellness

If not, get there! Wellness is the physical, mental, and emotional health, leading to a healthy way of living. Too often our goals are taken up with competitive ones, we are in a race to beat someone else or to have something that someone else doesn’t have. What all these boils down too, is what the other person is doing. A better way to go would be to simply ignore the competitiveness and set your own goal of achieving something good for somebody else.

A good example I came across in my Weekend Empathy Tweets is where a group of students did an emotional farewell for an elderly lady who would wave to them every morning, rain, hail or shine wishing them a happy start to the day. The video went viral and so did their social media profiles, you can see the tweet here .

Just after my last blog, I attended the STOP ADANI coal mine rally, Carmichael coal mine is a massive mine and a horrible Climate Change Timebomb proposed for Queensland with little job prospects as most jobs are automated and clearly damaging for the environment, the only benefit is to it owners who capitalise on the monopoly market of energy. As I am typing this blog Australia has voted to keep is current prime minister which means the mine will eventually most likely go ahead. Regardless of any setbacks, it’s important to realise they are only setbacks and you should always support solutions that improve the wellness of our lives and protest the activities that don’t. You can see my amazing experiences at the STOP ADANI RALLY here.

On a more positive note solutions are found everyday that help us achieve wellness if not for ourselves but for others in our community, such as the Zero emissions tour boat for the Niagara Falls click here (scroll down). Solutions and empathy is everywhere, so make wellness and empathy your new life goal.

Human Rights and Human Solutions

human-rights-900x600

Since last update, I have been using the Human rights hashtag quite frequently for everything from disability rights, a royal commission into the mistreatment and neglect of the disabled care centres in Australia to the recent arrest of Chelsea Manning for refusing to give evidence regarding wikileaks in a unopen arena.

Greed and ignorance always leads to corruption and ill-treatment of the vulnerable, however there is a good saying “You don’t win by fighting those you hate but by saving those you care about”. A good example is how Microsoft is using AI(artificial Intelligence) to map forests, all their vegetation, insects, animals in order to preserve the forest and accurately record its DNA structure if you like, this will be helpful when Climate Change kicks in, you can see the video on Empathy TV(link below), another good example is by sharing the good news as well as the bad on your social media account, everything from Amnesty Petitions through to climate change events or emailing your an MP on your objection to oil drilling in an ecosystem such as the Great Australian Bight. Please take the time to check out my Weekend Empathy Tweets in the link below.

Some new listings this update which are in the featured categories below, Sara has submitted her twitter page in the catalogues, not ony is she a yoga enthusiast but she also promotes Cannabis Health solutions and lifestyle, check out her twitter page under the “Do It From Home” category in the OPPORTUNITY catalogue.

Truth and Empathy – Do we really need to choose?

Invasion Day

Recently I attended my first Invasion Day Rally, this a rally protesting against the colonisation of Australia and how sovereignty was never ceded. Without absence of a treaty it is improper to celebrate Australia Day on the day the first fleet arrived. It was an emotional day, especially hearing the heartbreaking experiences of discrimination from indigenous people such as the mother of Grant Ross who was shot 5 times unarmed https://twitter.com/Ljb2Liam/status/1089016149293985792

However nothing quite surprised me more than a couple of days later when I came across as to what can only be described in my firm opinion as vitriolic. Twitter was trending a panel discussion aired by Studio 10 where a conflict occurred between Yumi Styles and Kerrie Anne Kennerley. When I viewed the video, to summarise, Kerrie Anne was making a comment that the people who marched on Invasion Day have not gone out to the bush to see first hand the abuse that indigenous communities suffer and that somehow these people who marched are ignorant in some way or possibly even lazy. I am completely at a loss as to how whether or not protest marchers have been bush or have witnessed atrocities first hand is relevant to the issue, if somebody has enough empathy to take time out of their day to walk a good few kilometers in the hot boiling sun after they have been working very hard all week for an issue that I would imagine is close to the heart of every Australian, I’m sure their heart is in the right place, but most of all, why do we have to choose between TRUTH(Sovereignty was never ceded) and EMPATHY(Objecting to the abuse that indigenous communities suffer) as I tweeted, can’t we do both https://twitter.com/Ljb2Liam/status/1090093716675584002 I for one will not be choosing, I will be doing both and walking with progress as opposed to generating a false argument that borders on stupidity, presumably for ratings, especially on an issue as sensitive as this where progressive minds who can empathize are needed, not certain members of our society who have time to watch morning talk shows and shout socially lazy comments from armchair to TV. I tweeted a response to Yumi and Nova Peris who like me was also disgusted click here https://twitter.com/Ljb2Liam/status/1089776895644712960

Are you ready to give this season?

Giving

Giving is the highest form of empathy, an activity that is one on one, it’s all about the receiver but also the giver. Christmas can get busy fast and in a ridiculous way, for me as my birthday is exactly 4 weeks before Christmas its get crazy with parties, family get togethers and so on and of course one needs to find time out of our daily grind to do the annual Christmas shopping. I was going through my Weekend Empathy Moments on twitter looking for inspiration for the last blog of 2018 and I came across an interview with Russell Brand and Marianne Williamson, Marianne was talking about depression and how it shouldn’t be dealt with in a drug taking way but in a more real and natural way and don’t expect immediate results, what captured my interest in that interview was when she said that its important to show up for people and do not squander one hour in your pain, that made a lot of sense to me. I am at my most productive when I take the time to think about how I can help someone else and this gives your life a purpose as opposed to an existence.

Tis the season of giving, share or donate charity links is a good way to give, I do this regularly and I find it’s a good way to promote empathy and opportunity at the same time, here some good examples since last update, Gulzar Duishenova is a Kyrgyzstani woman with a disability, who lives in a society where persons with disabilities face daily discrimination. One of these forms of discrimination is accessibility; from going to the doctor, to getting on public transport(Click here)  another example is after seven years of war, Syrians are struggling to survive. Over 5.5 million men, women and children have fled to neighbouring countries, where they live in extreme poverty, click here  Please give and be merry. Give a little bit »

Do you remember who you are?

Remeber Who You Are

It’s funny how trauma can change us and we actually become better than what we were before, however we may at times wish we were still that person before the trauma. Karen Unrue an inspiring author and mental health advocate and of course a Basicozbizinfo Star and this update’s winner tweeted an amazing video of this very thing that inspired me. Karen talks about how you never really recover from trauma but when you reach what you as a human becoming not just being, the view is so much better. Click Here and you see what Karen means, hope it inspires you like it inspired me.

Remembering who we are is very important, however there are times when we need to fight for who we are. In one of my Weekend Empathy Moment Tweets I signed a petition for Amnesty International to hold Myanmar Generals to account for assisting the genocide of the Rohingya people. Genocide is the systematic killing of all the people from a national, ethnic, or religious group, or an attempt to do this, this is where we have to fight for who we are, simply because our very existence disrupts the vested interest of another, and there is no debate or a win win solution, just a final solution in their mind. Which of course as I have talked about many times is in itself a lack of empathy. You can check out my tweet here .

A really informative video has been added to EMPATHY TV this update from Russell Brand interviewing Deeyah Khan about what creates extremists, from what I got from the video was that when people lack essential human needs in their life they will be attracted to an ideology of extremism and leave their old self behind in order to belong to somebody who simply fills their need. One could argue that in Western Society this need is already filled, however from my experience being an Australian Westerner(you could say) is that the political narrative from western democratic societies is that we say one thing but on close inspection we do another. Nonetheless these are good examples of why its important to remember who we are and accept that sometimes we may need to stand up and fight for it.
