Asylum-seekers, Refugees and the art of living
(It could be a wonderful start of a new world.) By Maggie Aoyagi.
European countries are receiving refugees because there is a great foundation of human rights and all that. But it also has created some great problems in Europe, like cultural and religious conflict, etc. I have seen some of those problems, while I’ve traveled through Europe.
Food, water, heat and housing are all basic needs. And the countries which receive all those people have great financial challenges. Of course there are some companies which will get great business and solve some unemployment problems. However all that money comes from the people’s taxation. And if asylum-seekers are put in institutional compounds all day, they will get mentally ill.
We, humans & most refugees are not intending to be trouble makers.
Well …I think that it could be a wonderful start of a new world. How…?
Like the German hostages in Japan created a nice village in Tokushima. It is called The paradise in the battle. Major General Matui made it possible, too.
Most of us want to keep the city material lifestyle like in the Hollywood movies. however, we someday realize that we need to have a real satisfaction that comes from connecting to nature and the divine. We can create an ideal village out of a dying village. A village which can manage its own necessities by farming. Even natural energy, too.
(I’ve already started living my own self-sufficient life.)
If refugees create those, when they go back to their countries, the village like dream can be sold for a good price and they can start a new life with that income.
It’s essential for us and refugees to enjoy the right to work.
Restoring and recreating our lives gives us a sense of dignity after escaping persecution and war.
