Brazil: 45% in poverty, yet only 50.9% for Lula

I don't really understand the outcome of the 2022 Brazilian general and presidential elections (Wiki). At least 45% of the 216 million people live in (extreme) poverty (source). Nevertheless, only 50.9% voted for Lula. An ironic explanation is that the more wealthy citizens become, the less likely they will vote for Labour-Left. The same trend is visible in Europe,...

Non-acceptance = Chaos ?

In Monday's blog, I wondered why humans – unlike the Universe – have this option of (non-) acceptance.

Please find my updated diagram below. My initial topic (ie,...

Happiness and satisfaction are essential in our lives. Add love and our life is complete. See my related blogs. Is the opposite also true? Dissatisfaction and unhappiness are key ingredients for a burnout. Today's societies seem governed by dissatisfaction, unhappiness & hate. What does that imply? For years, I've viewed (dis)satisfaction and (un)happiness at a...

Why do we believe in Fate?

The words Faith and Fate feel quite similar, semantically. I doubt that's a coincidence. In Dutch, the word Fate is ”het Lot” (eg, lottery ticket). It's fair to state that Fate refers to a slim chance on a considerable outcome, both negative (eg, accident) and positive (eg, lucky number). Hence, the Dutch word "het Lot". Faith refers to believing (eg, in a deity,...
