Banning religious symbols won’t be good for our culture

In the last few years people talk more and more about prohibiting religious symbols. People hope that by prohibiting such symbols, tensions between people will ease and that we can maintain our own culture. But I think that we will only harm our culture in this way.» Watch this vlog

Technical devices don’t help to exercise more

Many people who want to exercise more, often enthusiastically make use of all kinds of devices. However, I don’t believe in this. Devices can support us, but not make us exercise.» Watch this vlog

Unfortunately, ‘sustainable economy’ is a strange word

We hear more and more about a ‘sustainable economy’. But that is actually a strange word. For the economy works when we time and again buy new stuff.

In order to stimulate us to exercise more, step counters are created. The idea is: 10.000 steps a day and you have done enough. I have tried one and have noticed that it is also a one-sided way to get us upon our feet.» Read this blog

Old systems are more and more often being replaced by new technologies. That seems to be a good development, but is it always?

In the United States and in several countries in Europe people are very worried about fake news that has been spread by the Russians in order to influence our opinions.
