Dutch PM: “What more can I do??”

At last Friday's press conference, the Dutch PM asked his citizens: "What more can I do??" His pathetic remark triggered me to prepare a response. I've little to no confidence that it will change anything. I do hope that my response will embolden my readers into thinking: "Yesssss, I'm not alone in my view".

Tweedeling in de samenleving

Enkele dagen geleden schreef een NRC nieuwsbrief over de ontstane tweedeling in de Nederlandse samenleving. Na enig nadenken geloof ik dat die opmerking inderdaad (nog) een voorbeeld is van een fundamentele verandering in de maatschappij van trialisme (de "all-inclusive" samenleving) naar dualisme (de "haves" versus de "have nots" c.q. winners vs losers).
