We don’t need police state legislation on Bonaire

We’ll probably be howled down by ‘control freaks’ in our society, but ARCO will go on record as warning against copying Dutch ‘police state legislation’.

Not only will we be howled down, people will deride us and say that we exaggerate. Well, maybe we do exaggerate, but the fact is that this kind ...

Vrij en Blij

Voor de gewone man, zoals ik, ligt het voor de hand om wanneer we onze buren niet mogen, we een hek op de grens van ons domein bouwen.

We geven daarmee een duidelijke boodschap af: “Ik wens niets met je te maken hebben”. “Waarom”, daar gaan we liefst niet op in. “Als je dat niet weet, zoek je het ...

DIVERSITY IS OUR UNITY

We can make diversity our unity. As a matter of fact, we will have to make diversity our unity. For there will be freedom of migration in the world, sooner or later.

As the BES-islands struggle mentally to come to terms with the upcoming constitutional changes, it should be observed that the ...

Stop this stupid, stupid war!

We are all for peaceful globalization, but not this way. Globalization via socio-economic measures: Yes. Today! Globalization via war and violence: No, we want no part of it. There was a meeting in Yalta just before the recent Georgia-Russia war. Present were, among others, the President of ...

Drugs Threaten State of Mexico

The head of Mexico's intelligence service has said that drug cartels are threatening the country's democratic institutions, including Congress. Guillermo Valdes told the Financial Times that drug traffickers were trying to take over the power of the state. Gangs have infiltrated police forces, ...

The flaw in humanity

This article is the first of many. For many people, much of what is in these articles will be disturbing, to say the least.  For most people many statements will even be unacceptable. The statements made in these articles will understandably require many demonstrations, as they are contrary to much ...

Change; Opium for the Masses?

Obama will bring some change. Important change, even. But not yet the change the whole world needs. It appears we'll have to wait until 2012. That is when shift is supposed to happen. We do not mean this in any mystical sense, although we do not slight mysticism. We are referring to the expected ...

Peaceful Transition to Democracy in Cuba

There is active opposition to the Cuban government, but it is severely hampered by lack of funds, as well as lack of rights to organize. The right to freely organize political parties, trade-unions or any other associations with an independent political agenda is denied in Cuba. And even if it were ...

Equality in Exchange for BES Seabed

International news sometimes suggests solutions to local problems. The news that Australia has increased its share of the seabed by 2.5 million sq km, may serve as an example. The UN agreed to an extension of Australia's share. Its continental shelf will be extended by five times the size of ...

Peace Paradigm

Ugly Americans! Were they always ugly? Or have they become ugly during the Bush administration? Let us begin by saying there are no ugly Americans. There are no ugly Islamists either. There are only people. According to Clint Eastwood there are good people, bad people and ugly people. Eastwood ...

It’s About Breaking the Race-Barrier

When we from abroad watch the American presidential campaign, we see a young man with an unusual name - Obama - take center stage. And we rejoice. We are beginning to see a new America. An America that is finally and definitely going to define a new direction. For this is not about race. It’s about ...

Is the Capital Market Free?

What an absurd question! The answer obviously is a resounding: Yes! Anybody is free to buy or sell stocks! Indeed. But why don’t we analyze all ‘free market tests’ one by one, before we make a final judgment? If by these standards the capital market is free, we here at ARCO will each eat one whole ...

One World, Ready or Not

Okay, the title is plagiarized. But it’s a good title. And we give the original author (William Greider) full credit. Find his book on the ‘Manic Logic of Global Capitalism’ at Amazon. It was the song ‘We are One’ by Kevin Reid that reminded us of the book entitled: ‘One World, Ready or Not’. So we ...

Power must die and be Replaced by Justice

A seed must die to be reborn and grow into a tree. So too, a man must die to be reborn and become a new man. His ego must die. He himself must kill it, or at least be willing that it be killed. The same goes for power. The world is ruled by power, not justice. Power must die to be replaced by ...

USA: the World’s Last Best Hope

Some of our American friends don’t agree with our last Daily Connect, in which we point out that the Bush-administration poses a serious threat to freedom and democracy. They don’t see it. They demand proof. When we point out that the US is violating human rights openly and with total disregard for ...
