Reparations

Several people and/or countries demand reparations for past wrongful acts (eg, climate change, slavery, WWII). In case of countries, these demands often feel like blackmail or extortion. In case of people, these demands often lack causality due to time elapsed (eg, centuries). Moreover, there is an indirect and implicit claim of a collective sin, like the Germans...

Relevance vs irrelevance

Things that are relevant today may be irrelevant "tomorrow". The longer our perspective, the more things become irrelevant. Still, Time is only a marker - not a driver - of Change (eg, history, When). If most things are ultimately irrelevant then What is - or should be - relevant to us?

Our notion of time is directly related to the period that planet Earth needs for orbiting the Sun (ie, 365,256 days). Hence, any other planet must have a different notion of Time. Recently, I noticed an intriguing statement in a Nautilus...

Why is humour a taboo?

Last week, there was a row in my country due to a remark in a talk show. An old guy thought he was funny and made a rude joke. Other people felt offended. I ignore all these talk shows as any publicity is good publicity for them. The Dutch Justice Department wants to investigate if something happened 50 years ago. This Dutch row reminds me that several actors and/or...
