Fair Start Movement: 2023 Notable Highlights and Achievements
We are urging those holding extreme wealth to fund climate reparations as birth and development entitlements. This is the first and overriding human right. Such reparations would ensure that every child gets a fair start in life and restore nature.
Giving every child a Fair Start in life is the only way to empower and liberate people without disempowering others. It is the most just and effective way to resolve the various crises we face today. And there are specific ways to do that. Other nonprofits will not tell you this painful truth, truth like this article: The White Supremacy and Ecocide of Our Current Family Policies
Many are moving towards the idea that political legitimacy starts with children’s rights, primarily birth and developmental equity defined as an equal and influential role in setting the rules of one’s democracy. Why children’s rights? Children’s rights precede human rights, with the former obligation enabling the latter; each adult’s rights would have started with their rights as a child.
Eventually Fair Start demands can be facilitated with artificial intelligence , as the Fair Start movement develops social media systems tied to a universal climate tribunal that can identify those with just demands, those who should pay, and the correct amounts. Yes, AI gets the basics of Fair Start reforms, and will be key to implementing the changes.
Fair Start simply urges we afford those in the future the same values we all exhibited throughout our lives:
Minimum thresholds of personal welfare and wealth,
Expecting equal access to opportunities irrespective of positionality (the political equity aspect of freedom that precedes personal autonomy)
Participating in and adhering to political/legal systems that purported to represent the governed and where each has an influence on the outcome and maintains their relative capacity to choose or control who has power or influence over us
Using and enjoying an environment relatively conducive to human and nonhuman health
Enjoying the right to have a child in relatively safe conditions
