The common denominator

In several blogs, I have described myself as the common denominator when it comes to relationship failures. These reasons vary a lot but the common factor is me. I seem to be the “problem”.

Needs, Wants, Beliefs & Awakening (3)

Monday's blog about Awakening vs Beliefs made me wonder (again) what an Awakening actually is. I may have avoided that issue. It's (much) easier to say what it's not.

Fear sells

For a long time, I've been puzzled by the volume of fear-driven messages of Dutch and international media on the Covid-19 response. These fear-driven messages caused a tunnel vision and resulted in a race to the bottom. Also see my blog Race to the bottom. A December 6 article in the National Review confirms the above: Media-Driven Fear...
