An increasing number of articles pub…

An essay about the flip side

This morning I was watching a 'news-show' on Dutch television which featured the current minister of finance, Sigrid Kaag, a prominent war hawk, and a former politician who got 'MeToo-ed' out of politics some years ago, and reinvented himself as a geopolitical adviser, and co-owner of a Dutch 'Think…

An essay about taking the gravel road

All of a sudden the whole shithouse is caving in. An avalanche of falsehoods surrounds us.

An essay on a failed creation

An essay about how we screwed up, Part II

This is Part II, and you need to read Part I to understand where this is coming from. Before 2014, before Nuland's coup in Ukraine, the Russians understood that a conflict was brewing.

An essay about how we screwed up, Part I

How to defeat the 'Collective West'? Take a look at the pie representing the money spent on the military worldwide, and you'll find Russia squeezed in between France and the UK, with a modest three percent of GDP flowing to the military budget in 2021. The country is a midget in those terms. China r…

An essay about the adverse effect of conspiracy thinking

Serious 'Conspiracy-buffs' do not trust any government. In their perception Russia, China and the 'Collective West' are not at war among themselves, but with the people.

Are we facing problems? Or are we the problem? Elon Musk tweeted about the war in Ukraine, and it read: 'Nobody is pushing this war more than Nuland'. And that is true.

An essay about Transnistria

A huge amount of ammunition from the Soviet era in Transnistria at Cobasna would provide Ukraine a lifeline to extend its war-efforts, since NATO is no longer able to provide the country with ammunition, while the Russians are clearly able to produce 'on demand'.
