[사회, 정책] 서문: 뭣이 중헌디? 12살 소녀의 적나라한 팩트폭행

in #kr-politics3 years ago (edited)

안녕하세요. WIDWIA입니다.

어릴적부터 사용하던 silentnada라는 아이디가 익숙해서 그대로 사용했었는데,
(SilEnT_NaDa라고 썼었는데, 그 무렵 유행하던 스타 프로게이머 아이디를 조합해서 만든 것입니다 ^^;)
이제 애가 아니다 보니 소개할 때 마다 오글거려서 좋아하는 다른 문구로 바꿨습니다.

WIDWIA : What I Do is What I Am

원문은 이거죠. silentnada와 의미는 상통하네요 하하

당신이 하는 말이 아니라, 당신이 하는 행동이 곧 당신이다.




이번 주말에는 여자친구와 모교로 소풍을 다녀왔습니다.
먼 거리지만 반기에 한 번쯤은 놀러가는 것 같은데 갈 때마다 조경, 골목에 가게들, 학교 시설 등이 몰라보게 정비되고 깔끔해져서 깜짝깜짝 놀랍니다.
포항 송도해수욕장은 허름한 뒷골목이었는데, 어느 새 복층 카페가 즐비한 관광지가 됐더라구요.

지식과 기술의 발전은 엄청난 풍요를 낳았고, 현대는 과거 어느 때와 비교해도 더 살기 좋은 세상입니다.
하지만 얻는 것이 있으면 잃는 것이 있는 법이죠.
부는 풍족해졌지만 사람들이 더 행복해졌다고는 말하기 힘들고,
개발은 환경파괴를 낳고, (잔악하게도 봄 소풍 나온 아이 입에도 마스크를 덮어 씌웁니다)
사람들을 노동의 구렁텅이로 몰아넣어 대부분이 너무나 바쁘게 살아가고,
풍족해졌을지언정 빈부격차는 더 커져만 갑니다.
이렇듯 좋은 세상이지만 여전히 사회 곳곳에 부조리가 남아있습니다.

디자인의 (완성)은 (부족한 것이 없는 것)이 아니라 (불필요한 것이 없는 것)이다.

한참 공부하던 시절, 뭔가 새로운 것을 끊임없이 채워넣으려고만 하던 시절에 저에게 와 닿았던 말입니다.
우리 모두가 그다지 필요하지 않은 것을 채우기 위해 정작 소중한 것을 잃어가고 있는 것이 아닌가 생각해보자는 의미에서 이번 포스팅을 작성합니다.
제가 쓴 글이 아니라, 한글자막이 포함된 유튜브 영상과 원문 스크립트입니다.
(원문 텍스트 스크립트를 찾지 못해서 영어공부할 겸, 새길 겸 돌려 들으며 옮겨 적었습니다)

1992년 리우 회의에서 있었던 Severn Cullis-Suzuki (당시 12살 소녀)의 연설입니다.
저는 다섯 번 돌려보면서 두 번 울었습니다. 부끄럽고 멋져서요.
6분짜리 짧은 영상이니, 여러분 모두 꼭 보시면 좋겠습니다.

Hello, I'm Severn Suzuki speaking for ECO the environmental children's organization
We are a group of 12 and 13 year-olds tying to make a difference.
Vanessa Suttie, Morgan Geisler, Michelle Quigg, and me. We've raised all the money to come here ourselves to come 5000 miles to tell you adults you must change your ways.
Coming up here today, I have no hidden agenda.
I am fighting for my future.
Losing my future is not like long an election, or a few points on the stock market.
I am here to speak for all generations to come.
I am here to speak on behalf of the starving children around the world whose cries go unheared.
I am here to speak for the countless animals dying across this planet because they have nowhere left to go.
I am afraid to go out in the sun now, because of the holes in our ozone.
I am afraid to to breathe the air, because I don't know what chemicals are in it.
I used to go fishing in Vancouver, my home, with my dad until just a few years ago, we found the fish full of cancers.
And now we hear of animals and plants going extinct every day, vanishing forever.
In my life, I have dreamed of seeing the great herds of wild animals, jungles, and rainforests full of birds and butterflies, but now I wonder if they will even exist for my children to see.
Did you have to worry of these things when you were in my age?
All this is happening before our eyes and yet we act as if we have all the time we want and all the solutions.
I am only a child and I don't have all the solutions but
I want you to realize, neither do you.
You don't know how to fix the holes in our ozone layer.
You don't know how to bring the salmon back up in a dead stream.
You don't know how to bring back an animal now extinct.
And you can't bring back the forests that once grew where there is now a desert.
If you don't know how to fix it, please stop breaking it.
Here, you may be delegates of your governments, business people, organizers, reporters or politicians.
But, really, you are mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles, and all of you are someone's child.
I am only a child, yet I know we are all part of a family, five billion strong; in feet 30 million species strong,
and borders and governments will never change that.
I am only a child, yet I know we are all in this together and should act as one single world towards on single goal.
In my anger, I am not blind; and in my fear, I'm not afraid of telling the world how I feel.
In my country, we make so much waste, we buy and throw away, buy and throw away, buy and throw away
and yet northern countries will not share with the needy.
Even when we have more than enough we are afraid to share; we are afraid to let go of some of our wealth.
In Canada, we live the privileged life.
We have plenty of food, water, and shelter.
We have watches, bicycles, computers, and television sets
The list could go on for two days. Tow days ago, here in Brazil, we were shocked when we spent time with some children living on the streets.
This is what one child told us:
"I wish I was rich and if I were, I would give all the street children food, clothes, medicines, shelter, and love and affection."
If a child on the streets who has nothing is willing to share, why are we who have everything still so greedy?
I can't stop thinking that these are children my own age, that it makes a tremendous difference where you are born;
that I could be one of these children living in the favelas of Rio.
I could be a child starving in Somalia, or a victim of war in the Middle East, or a begger in India.
I am only a child, yet I know if all the money spent on war was spent on finding environmental answers ending poverty and in finding treaties what a wonderful place this Earth would be.
At school, even in kindergarten, you teach us how to behave in the world.
You teach us to not to fight with others, to work things out, to respect others, to clean up our mess, not to hurt other creatures, to share, not be greedy.
Then why do you go out and do the things you tell us not to do.
Do not forget why you are attending these conferences; who you are doing this for.
We are your own children. You are deciding what kind of a world we are growing up in.
Parents should be able to comfort their children by saying "Everything's going to be all right; it's not the end of the world, and we are doing the best we can."
But I don't think you can say that to us anymore.
Are we even on your list of priorities?
My dad always says, "You are what you do, not what you say."
Well, what you do makes me cry at night.
You grown-ups say you love us.
But I challenge you, please, make your actions reflect your words.
Thank you.




전쟁에 쓰인 그 많은 돈을,
쌓아 놓고 더 많은 부를 축적하는데나 쓰는 그 돈들을
다른데 썼다면 세상은 모두가 행복한 곳이 되었을 것이라는 말이,
"Why are you still so greedy?" 라는 문장이
정수리를 후벼 파는 느낌입니다.

저도 더 어릴 적에는 그저 부자가 되고싶었고, 정치는 남의 일이었고, 세상은 나 하나로 바뀌지 않는다고 생각했습니다.
크면서 생각이 바뀌었는데, 그런 무관심은 부조리를 만연케 하고, 그 부조리는 언젠가 나에게 또는 나의 가족에게 화살로 돌아온다는 것을 깨달았습니다. 바꾸기 위해 아무 행동을 하지 않았던 후회는 항상 늦다는 것도 배웠고, 천천히라도 세상이 바뀌는 것은 더 좋은 세상을 꿈꾸며 무던히 노력하는 사람들이 있기 때문이라는 것도 배웠습니다.

이어질 다음 글에서는 대한민국의 잘못된 정책과 이 정책들이 가져온 문제점들을 살펴보고,
근본적인 질문에서부터 시작하여 해답을 고민해보려고 합니다.
각 주제는 부동산, 조세/국민연금, 일자리/직장민주화, 교육이 될 것 같습니다.
최대한 빨리 다시 찾아뵐 수 있도록 하겠습니다 !

오늘도 가치있는 하루 보내시기를 바랍니다.

딱부러지고 명확하신분 같습니다.

행동하는 지성인

글 자주 올리려고 했는데... 바쁘게 일하고 짬내서 노느라 생각을 못 따라 가네요^^;
부끄럽지 않게 행동이 따라오도록 해야겠습니다 !
좋게 봐주셔서 감사합니다
