Finding our goals in life

Usually, we do not think about finding our goals in life. Those goals arrive “automatically” and/or subconsciously. For nearly everyone, our primary goal is survival (eg, food, housing, water). For most of us, money is our secondary goal in life because money satisfies our needs and our wants. When our needs and our wants (in life) have been satisfied then finding...

Milieudefensie versus ING Bank

Al wekenlang hoor ik de drammerige reclameboodschap van Milieudefensie tegen ING Bank. Ik had gehoopt dat ING een website zou starten voor de zwijgende meerderheid als reactie op deze luidruchtige minderheid (t.w. 16.001).

Most of all, against the four governments headed by Mark Rutte over the period 2010-2023. The winner is an extreme nationalist party, which has left-wing policies (eg, better...

Finally: Dutch defragmentation

The most important - and overlooked - result of the 2023 Dutch General Election is a defragmentation. Small parties lost seats (-17) or even disappeared from Dutch Parliament (-2). All four government parties lost seats (-36). Left-wing parties lost seats (-14). Right-wing parties won the 2023 election. The biggest misconception is that a big Left-wing party (ie,...
