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 ...

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 ...

Diabolus est Deus Inversus

The Devil is God turned upside down. As long as our understanding of God is on this level, i.e. that there are two Forces - one Good (= God) and the other Evil (= Devil), we are going to keep on fighting wars. Look at the words themselves even: Good = God and The Evil = Devil. So God is not One, ...

Oswaldo Payá: Repeal Cuba’s Electoral Law!

Cuba’s dissident Oswaldo Payá recently handed in a petition to repeal Cuba’s existing electoral law and to replace it by a truly democratic one. The petition states: “Inspired by the ideals proclaimed in the Cuban Forum Campaign, we have submitted a citizens’ petition to the offices of the National ...

Caribbean Human Beans

Is there such a thing as a ‘Caribbean Human Bean’, or ‘CariBean’ for short? No. But he could be created. In fact he has already been created to an extent. His skin-color is somewhat brown-beany, an inextricable mixture of all human races, containing within him the best and the worst of all of them. ...

Yahoo in China Doublespeak

Well in fact, the US also double-speaks. The land of the free has been spying on its own people ever since the ‘war on terrorism’ began (if not before, but we don’t know that). So all this fuss about China spying on its own people is insincere. We agree that the state has no right to imprison its ...

Perspective

‘In 1492 America discovered Columbus and colonialism'. This phrase was very popular during the sixties to give history a different perspective. Instead of a hero, Columbus is depicted as a villain. Even his Spanish surname (‘Colón') begins with the first 5 letters of ‘colonialism'. America could ...

Cat Predicts Patient deaths

You’d better get rid of the cat. For if the patients start believing that the cat can predict their death, the suggestion would indeed kill them. This is how Voodoo magic works. First you create a belief, then you use the belief in a suggestion, and - lo and behold! - the magic works! For example, ...

Maneho di imigrashon hustu i humano

Maneho di migrashon mester ta basá riba derecho humano. Kualkier persona ku ta pensa otro, realmente no tin derecho di biba den un demokrasia. Si un polítiko òf gezaghebber no ta rekonosé derecho fundamental di hende, pueblo mester dun’é su retiro. Awe e ta trapa derecho di migrante, mayan e ta ...

Fascisme in Nederland

Fascisme beschouw ik als een zeer menselijke cultivar van xenofobie. De meest basale deugden, die wij als leden van een  samenleving ontwikkelen, zijn  op veiligheid en bescherming van have en goed gericht. Pas in tweede instantie - wanneer we ontdekken, dat er ook een intern gevaar bestaat ...
