Jaywalking and Littering Will Land You on A Shame List

Tue, 03/29/2011 - 03:14 pm PST by Christy McCreath

When you jaywalk or throw out that piece of bubble gum on the street, you probably think you're doing no harm, right?! Well, if you live in the city of Wuhan, China, you wouldn't just be doing harm ... you'd be named and shamed in a local newspaper.

Time Newsfeed reported that starting March 19, the Wuhan Evening News began publicly listing "uncivilized" offenders who had run red lights, parked carelessly, jaywalked or littered. Not only were pictures of the perpetrators prominently displayed in the newspaper, traffic violators also had their license plate numbers and the time and location of the offense listed.

This is a clear example that in this day and age we are all held karmically accountable -- in more ways than one. Now these citizens of Wuhan have to also worry that their careless actions will land them on the front page of their local newspaper!

While I understand that jaywalking, running red lights and littering are thoughtless activities that put others in danger or just annoy other citizens in general, I have to ask: Should these offenders REALLY be penalized in the form of a public name-and-shame?!

I can honestly say no, these citizens should NOT be subjected to something as public and humiliating as landing on the front page of their local newspaper for inconsiderate actions. It's simply a misuse of administrative powers. It's one thing to fine offenders -- but I don’t know how Wuhan government officials found a loophole to go as far as publicly disgracing everyday citizens who are just going about their day. It's an invasion of privacy -- especially because it's for something like jaywalking … hey, we all jaywalk right?! (Just kidding).

How would you feel if this public name-and-shame campaign existed in your city? Would you be for it or against it?

Planets As Teachers: Saturn

By Jeff Jawer

Saturn symbolizes boundaries, limits and crystallization. As the last planet visible to the naked eye it represented the end of the solar system, the ring past not point where our version of reality ended. Saturn is about necessity, responsibility and dealing with the rules of life and, as such, was considered to be the most difficult planet of all. Esoterically, the problem with Saturn is that it is about manifesting in material form. This is the fall of spirit into matter and, by some accounts, connected with the notion of original sin.continued »
