THE WASTELESS CITY

For more than a decade the SMART CITY concept has been discussed between shareholders and stakeholders. Project managers introduce roadmaps filled with and by technology consisting of IoT, managed by AI, in VR and AR the visitors can see the METAVERSE beauty.

In all the concepts one thing is missing, probably because of not so important.

HUMAN

It is reduced to consumer, citizen, or user.

One thing is unnoticed at the same time, despite the growing volumes, created WASTE is understood as solved by the waste industry

How well does the waste industry work You can observe in your own cities, countries, forests, oceans, or rivers which thanks to the third most profitable industry turn into landfills if not turned directly into cemeteries with the help of the most profitable industry in the world, the WAR INDUSTRY

Not one, not Two, but many wars and war conflicts kill and destroy

Turning our planet into a global graveyard on a global landfill, because one generates the other going hand in hand.

Every living creature learns from the mistakes, except for one

HUMAN

Animals, plants, and organisms, hand over the manuals on how to avoid mistakes to the next generations as part of DNA. The HUMANS call it not efficient and write and publish papers and publications and studies, putting it on paper which no one reads, or on events and conferences that just the speakers attend, being impressed by every new paper that results in the next paper.

  • Results not needed
  • Application in the real world is not needed
  • General understanding is not needed

What counts is next mention in science or research papers

These people, hand in hand with money makers speak about SMART CITIES which under different names like 15-MINUTES CITY, THE LINE, and others should be filled with SMART TECHNOLOGY same as the SMART CITIZENS.

  • EASY TO CONTROL
  • EASY TO SCARE
  • EASY TO MANAGE
  • EASY TO SHUT DOWN BEHIND THE DOORS EQUIPPED WITH SMART LOCKS

Following the development, I am missing HUMANS to be part of the quotation

CITIZENS, USERS, CONSUMERS, STAKEHOLDERS, SHAREHOLDERS all these terms are there same as HUMAN-CENTRIC design that makes from HUMANS the tools so well described in Hungarian comics from the seventies which you will understand without speaking Czech

Fifty years ago, and still so well describing the current times, just the size and shapes of machines that take over users' lives, have changed

They are small, frequently invisible creating BIOMIMICRY that gets researched in labs despite being already spread in real life. We spend money and time speaking about deadly shot long after it was fired and hit its target.

HOW WOULD THE SMART CITIES LOOK LIKE?

We have many to choose from but do not forget that one is not being offered and this is the city in which smartness will be measured by the wise behavior of those who will live insight, HUMANS and NATURE

Similar to nature humans can live WASTELESS and even a city can be wasteless but to reach this stage any form of waste management can not be called WASTELESS and people and nature must respect each other again

Maybe it will help if a song reminds you of what needs to be done

or an image

Have a nice time free of waste and wasting in all its forms, stay safe and free, and be HUMAN
