Two days ago I got interviewed by Ricky Stutgard on Radio Gold (101.3 FM) about the lawsuit I started against the criminal government in Suriname against the mandatory use of face masks supposedly to fight COVID-19. Stutgard is a microbiologist and teacher at the Anton de Kom University of Suriname. You can watch the interview, which is in Dutch, on YouTube or on Archive.org. Read more ⟶
We kunnen speculeren over de oorsprong, de betekenis en het doel van het leven, maar wat we wel zeker weten is dat wij allen de kans hebben gekregen om op dit moment het leven te ervaren. En met ons, alle flora en fauna op onze planeet, van het microscopische tot het macroscopische — allemaal levende organismen, net als ons. Read more ⟶
It’s been a little quiet on my blog for the last few weeks, and that’s because I’ve filed a lawsuit against the State in Suriname against the mandatory use of face masks — one of their “COVID-19 measures.” Details on that can be found on a separate website that I created for this purpose. It’s in Dutch, but if you’re interested you can use an online translation service to check it out. You can imagine that this is using up a lot of my time, and some reasons for that are also discussed in the petition which you can download from the website. I’ll have more details up on my blog in the near future.
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. T. S. Eliot
Leaked emails from government officials and scientists in Germany show that politicians and scientists worked together on a plan to expose the German public to psychological warfare in order to get them to give up their freedoms and accept hard COVID-19 lockdown measures. Several scientists came up with proposals on how to instill “fear and obedience” in the population. Read more ⟶
Ever wonder why Plato chose to speak and write in the dialogue form? If so, you’re not alone. I’ve wondered that myself in the past while reading some of his work. And even back then it seemed to me that he was trying to somehow record some important knowledge, sometimes philosophical concepts and sometimes even (alternative) history, without getting into trouble.

I’ve finally made time to get rid of everything from Google that I was still using on my website, including the analytics, fonts and captcha. I had already removed other social media platforms more than a year ago, and now the last pieces of tracking and spyware have been removed. Hopefully there aren’t any issues I haven’t seen; so far so good.
People are taking the local criminal governments to court in various countries because of the lockdown measures in response to the COVID-19 ‘pandemic.’ You probably won’t be hearing much about these cases in the mainstream media, so you need to make sure you follow alternative news websites and bloggers who talk about these efforts. I’ll discuss a few noteworthy ones below. Read more ⟶
During discussions about the system of enslavement (‘Statism’) that is currently implemented worldwide, one of the things that’s often brought up by others is the question of why I’m making use of things (facilities, services, etc.) inside this system while I am opposed to it. That would seem hypocritical upon first glance, and this question, often phrased in a variety of ways, is a very valid question. Read more ⟶
There’s a lot to lean from the way in which Big Tech took down social media platform Parler more than a week ago, and one of the lessons to take away from that whole debacle is the fact that Amazon Web Services (AWS) can also not be trusted (with your business). Thanks to AWS stopping their service to Parler, the social media website has now been offline for days. Read more ⟶
The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are. H.L. Mencken
WhatsApp has given users an ultimatum to agree to sharing more information with Facebook before February 8th 2021 if they want to continue using the application. As I’ve written about ever since August 2019, Mark Fuckerberg planned to integrate WhatsApp and Instagram much more with Facebook, and this also included advertising and sharing of (user) data. The coming change to WhatsApp will be an even bigger violation of users’ privacy. Read more ⟶
Yesterday I tried sharing a speech by Malcolm X on Facebook and noticed that Facebook is censoring part of the speech based on copyright claims. The speech is included in a cartoon animation video, illustrating the things that Malcolm X talks about, namely the difference between what he calls ‘house negroes’ and ‘field negroes.’ You can see the notification I got from Facebook below.

Without leaving your home, you can understand the whole world. Without looking out the window, you can see the way of heaven. The further away you go, the less you understand yourself. That is why the wise man understands himself without traveling. He sees without looking. He accomplishes everything without doing anything. Lao Tse
At the moment, especially in the Netherlands but also in Suriname, there’s a hype around Anton de Kom and his book “We slaves of Suriname.” Unfortunately, it all looks more like ‘virtue-signaling’ and ‘lip-service’ given the fact that there is little evidence that people have actually understood Anton de Kom’s message, let alone that they have changed their daily choices and actions accordingly.

I’m featured in the December 2020 edition of Parbode magazine regarding the so called COVID-19 ‘pandemic.’ The article titled “Mondkapje versus muilkorf: COVID-19 één grote poppenkast?” (December 10th 2020) is in Dutch and you can read part of it online by clicking here. I’ve also included an English translation of the online portion below. Read more ⟶
I’ve been experimenting with publishing audio versions of some of my posts in the last few days using Artificial Intelligence (AI) generated voices. The results are pretty cool even though there’s still lots of room for improvement. If you’d like to check it out, you can visit my YouTube channel for convenience, or check out my channel/profile on LBRY.tv and Archive.org for the videos. You can download them and listen to them like any other podcast. I’ll probably be releasing audio-only versions of them sometime in the future. Remember to download and save a local copy because they might disappear in the future when those fuckwads in big tech decide to censor me.
A team from the University of Michigan published a study titled “Censored Planet: An Internet-wide, Longitudinal Censorship Observatory” where they look at censorship around the world. Things appear to be getting worse as mentioned: “What we see from our study is that no country is completely free,” said Ram Sundara Raman, U-M doctoral candidate in computer science and engineering and first author of the study.

I came across another fine example in a local newspaper of the unnecessary problems caused by policies promoting sexual suppression and repression in society. I decided to translate it from Dutch to English and post it here for easy reference in the future. Read more ⟶
