Not every resistance to 5G is ridiculous

by the end of 2019 to 90 per cent of the population access to the new mobile radio standard 5G, promises to Swisscom. And what are the politicians doing? You cross, at least in the Western part of Switzerland. Last week, the government of the Canton of Jura has decided the construction of new 5G antennas to suspend – due to health concerns. You want to wait and see in the summer coming Federal study of the possible risks of the 5G technology, the report of the "working group on cellular and radiation" under the leadership of the Federal office for the environment (FOEN). Also, the Geneva cantonal Parliament wants to wait, in the Canton of Vaud, a Moratorium will be examined, and in new castle is a procedural request is pending.

Cautious, esoteric, false theories are led by conspiracy? Not at all. The Blockade of the Western part of Switzerland is doubly pleasing. Firstly, the policy, what is your preached constantly does here: she takes the Fears of the population seriously, a decent, non-violent way. Secondly, the moratoriums show how intact the confidence in the people of the Covenant is still: Better, we, the FOEN wait. Our officers are well-trained, well-paid, incorruptible – they will tell us the truth, if with the technology, if something is not right. The working group also business representatives sit, logically, the provides balance.

The Fears of 5G are amazingly diverse, criticism comes from agriculture, home owners, and Doctors – and hundreds of neighbourhood associations that want to have no new or more powerful antenna in a Church steeple or on the roof. Sure, some skeptics diffuse views on wavelengths, hot ears and verendende bee colonies. Many would simply like to black and white from the highest authority, that the technology is in order, before profit-oriented IT companies zupflastern the country. Absurd? Not really.

self-limitation is part of

support the 5G-opponents of a further group. Your not so important whether the phone runs on 4G, or 5G, as long as the conservative set radiation limits are complied with. You doubt in principle on the need for a faster Internet in the trousers bag. In the Tram not only the nursery days to choose, but also at home, the heater will turn on, a Blockbuster in a matter of seconds to download and the results of the last doctor visit via guaranteed safe App with the specialists to share? We are not today enough as it is fixed on our phone?

doubts as to the blessings of the portable Internet you must be able to formulate, without a future or an enemy to be reviled. Yes, the Smartphones not go away, we need to be able to deal with them. But to the wise handling is also self-limiting. The free Thinking and the sensual Experience. To defend this space against faster attention eater, is not of this world, but life is funny.

Such Fears do not have to take care of the FOEN working group. It is the responsibility of the consumer, not mindlessly on every acceleration. We need zones of slowness. It doesn't have to be a 5G-free Switzerland, also if the safe touristy liesse ("Land of the mountains, free of the antennas market"). But a pair of connecting arms Park? Targeted radio holes placed feel-good? A deliberately slow the Canton of Jura? Why not. Would do well.
