Good for Norway !
This is heartening, and IMO reflects an important step in thinking in our times : namely that although we CAN do something, if we see that it may also cause a lot of harm, we can also NOT do it. This is an example of letting a strong temptation pass you by, and it includes a certain degree of sacrifice
Have you ever had a tantalizing opportunity served to you "on a silver platter", that you took advantage of, and lived to regret it ? I certainly have !
And have you ever let one of those opportunities PASS, because just in that moment you had an inkling it was the better thing to do ? How did THAT affect your life afterwards ?
The tar sands in Canada are another such temptation, as is large scale, unrestrained development of the Amazon rainforest for Brazil today. The rollout of 5G networks in the face of extensive scientific indications that it's HARMFUL to people and the environment is another
The rollout of smart meters and of massive, even mandatory vaccination programs, despite warnings from scientists and clear, loud statements from citizens that they have been harmed, are IMO examples of temptations succumbed to, with the consequences just BEGINNING to be reckoned
But the theme of this linked article is a positive one, and really should be celebrated. Letting a temptation pass can be a most refreshing, cleansing, morale building force in human life. It can be DEFINING, and set a whole new direction into the future
Good for Norway - keep the ball rolling, people !
with friends !
