Seeing the Forest for the Trees and The End of Antinuclear Activism
Trying to exert control as citizens and citizen groups over the nuclear juggernaut is now extremely difficult but it shouldn't be this way and what we can do about it now is not for the faint of heart.
There are things in life that are expected to be very trying and hard. They include raising a family, cultivating a long-term relationship, running a business, and death and dying. Occasionally, becoming involved in a 'movement' that is necessary for social justice will require a difficult contribution of time and energy. People decide to become involved in social change movements because of a commonly-held belief that in our democracy the government reflects the will of the people. When a majority of the people want to change a nation's course and direction, the government bends.
But this is not the case for the 'nuclear project.' It may have been possible fifty years ago - or even twenty years ago - to force the nuclear genie back into its bottle for good. But a 'nuclear-first people-second' mentality has spread and infected governments across the globe. The days when a million people can march into a capitol and within a reasonable amount of time see adequate legislation and changes enacted are over, at least when it comes to 'nuclear.' Our governments simply don't care what we think about 'nuclear'. They are turning a blind eye to population-poisoning nuclear accidents. They are arbitrarily raising permissible doses. They are ignoring common sense and are actively engaged in brainwashing their own citizens to keep the people from treading on 'nuclear turf.'
The Inconceivable Truth
Over several decades, myriad reckless activities related to nuclear weapons development involving nuclear powered satellites, megaton-range nuclear explosions in air and space, Stars Wars nuclear weapons-pumped lasers, and more, greatly polluted the biosphere and millions of human bodies while incredible efforts were undertaken by the U.S. government to bamboozle its citizens and others about the harmful effects on human biology from these widely released deadly, manmade radioactive substances. Science, justice, democracy and peace became victims of this all-out endeavor to distract the public about one little known Achilles Heel of the nuclear weapon, which is - as was secretly learned as early as 1945 with 'Trinity' - that such an exploded device easily disperses 'internal emitters' globally that do unbelievable damage to the health (across multiple generations) and also gene pools of virtually all species. The motivation for this great deception was to stay nuclear-armed and use the threat of nuclear attack to sustain and expand postwar U.S. empire.

The results of this are truly depressing. We live in a world where parents are focusing years into antinuclear activism that could have been used to read to or play with their children. We see activists straining for years and years and after finding they have little to show for those efforts and little left to give, they finally give up. We see citizen groups in their third or fourth decades still fighting to close their local unsafe nuclear reactor. These concerned citizens should be able to remove the roots of corruption that are related to government madness with relative ease and then move on to pursue happiness. This is, after all, the promise of democracy - that we can use the many tools and checks-and-balances available to us, powers that are stacked in the favor of the citizen, to effect change.
But the problem is too big now for that. We have to realize that the task of taking back the power we loaned to government and regulators who took that power to 'go wild' with nukes is so great that we have to make a great decision. We can retreat into our personal worlds by maturely deciding it is better to give up and do the best at pursuing happiness that we can, or we choose to fight. But in order to fight and win we have to get it out of our minds that what's necessary is a movement or a protest. To win will require a battle of millions of human souls pitted against the captors of the Earth. It will require a monumental global revolution to preserve life and secure the only nourishment for it, a safe, clean Earth, that is daily being despoiled and raped by nuclear madmen.
The reason why our task is so great now is that the generations of citizens that preceded us ignored their democratic duties. Their duty was to prevent their government from ever turning against humanity. The founding fathers of our democracies tried to warn future generations that government is like a garden constantly under threat of invasive species. They gave us our cherished liberties which are tools to be used at the right times to remove malignant roots growing in our government. But our predecessors failed to remain vigilant and failed to stay cognizant of the everlasting threat of the tendency for government to become corrupt. Had citizens been active in screening for and weeding out the harmful elements of our community garden, then the seeds of nuclearism and misinformation-fed myths about 'permissible levels' of radiation wouldn't have proliferated.
Now the weeds have proliferated and merged into a massive and fast-growing 'Plantzilla' with suffocating vines and crushing roots. We are now beyond the point of 'light gardening.' The future of our republic depends on whether or not the blogger, the mother and the citizen group finally sees the forest for the trees. In order for madness to be canceled and the Earth saved, these people, the good people who are trying to save the world, need to see that the nuclear menaces they're fighting are the details, or the trees, and that destructive government is the forest.
