Love Knowledge Power


I've never written about opportunism, despite mentioning it (eg, my blogs of 2022 and 2016). Opportunism may well explain the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine. However, the Russian analysis of (mutual) Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (ie, SWOT) clearly failed (badly). My August blog, Calculating women vs opportunistic men, suggests that opportunism...

Love, Knowledge & Power, a f/m perspective

Several days ago, Bloomberg reported that men - again - took the bulk of Nobel prizes. This is - again - evidence that men are - in general - hungry for Power.

Nevertheless, the big, slow and smart elephants appear powerful (eg, trumpet sounds). Clearly, even a projection of power equals Power. Compared to humans, many animals have more strength (eg, harder,...

Is the ‘trias politica’ obsolete?

Elected presidents governing by decree, hung parliaments, and courts taking political decisions following (i) their ideological beliefs (eg, SCOTUS), and/or (2) NGO's (eg, NRA, Urgenda verdict). As a result, the executive branch is curbing the power of the judicial branch in several countries (eg, Hungary, Poland, USA). Recently, Noah Feldman, a Harvard law...
